SURVIVORS STAND TOGETHER! Capesthorne Hall 2020 Information.

sent by Born Survivor on 24/03/2020 at 09:16

We have had only a very small number of emails/messages requesting refunds....So thank you to all of our loyal Survivors who have been extremely patient and understanding.

You're amazing....we have always known this.🎖

Ticket Transfer:
Your ticket will be automatically transferred over to the new date once confirmed, no action will be necessary and your teams and preferred wave times will be maintained within our system. 💪 As soon as we release our date we will open up our ticket site and allow you to continue to build your teams even stronger!

We will follow up with a new Cheshire event date as soon as COVID-19 begins to be defeated and depleted and we believe that we can confidently plan a date.

Our Message:
In line with our terms and conditions refunds for our events are not possible. Like many large scale events in the UK, we work tirelessly whilst investing into the event prior to it's arrival date, and of course take educated risk through careful planning and projections estimate that we sell enough tickets before the event to cover our costs....and hopefully even make some small profit! :)

British Events Need You:
Behind the scenes of all successful events, organisers put their neck on the line to bring personal/team challenge, inspiring entertainment and a reason to strive to be better to the British public!
The events industry looks very glamorous on the day, however behind the scenes the effort, stress and planning required in order to excel, ensure safety and create smiles on the big day is immense.
Prior to the event Born Survivor must cover advertising, wages, new equipment, new obstacles, event service deposits, medals, T shirts and head buffs etc, and therefor 1 month before the event all that is left is a small profit.
We would love to be able to inform our followers that all ticket sales stay in our bank until the event is finished and then we share the profits....however this is far from reality!

Before trying to cancel tickets to any events that you have signed up for, we urge you to stop and think.
If your favourite event disappeared what would you do next Summer? Who would inspire you when you need it most? There's a big picture....please use perspective to view it. Events have been here for event organisers need you more than ever. 🎖

Capesthorne Hall - The Next Mission!
Born Survivor will provide an amazing event at Capesthorne Hall when the time for muddy battle arrives. It will see a new course route, new obstacles, live music at the Survivor Bar, New Music Battle Zones and many more improvements! Although this unforeseen situation has halted us temporarily it will not stop us and nor will it stop your day in the mud and glory! 💪💦

We hope that you and your families are well and that you are doing your upmost to isolate yourself from others.
This is the time that we all must do the right thing.

Take care out there troops X
Remember....We're Stronger Together But Better Apart.
Keep Your Distance!

POSTPONED – Born Survivor Capesthorne Hall – 2nd May 2020

sent by Born Survivor on 16/03/2020 at 16:29

The Situation:

Due to the continuously changing picture of COVID-19, Born Survivor HQ are extremely sad to inform you that we have been left with no realistic option but to postpone Born Survivor Capesthorne Hall on 2nd May 2020.

The Born Survivor team have agreed that due to the large concentration of people expected in Cheshire on 2nd May including participants, spectators and event staff; the only viable safe alternative is to postpone the much loved Capesthorne Hall event.

Our Message To Survivors:
We understand that our decision will be met with sadness, and we share this feeling of disappointment as our team have worked tirelessly in the planning and improvement since last May’s amazing event. However together we must now stand to help keep our great country safe by protecting those most at risk.
Please be assured that you will have your day in the mud and glory, and upon its arrival that sweet taste of victory will be that little bit more special!

What Next:
We understand that you may have questions in regards to the details of what happens next, especially in regards to event deferrals. We appeal for your patience and understanding whilst we assess the ever changing COVID-19 picture and consult with our course venue and support team.

Please refrain from contacting us by email and social messenger as we work to implement our contingency planning...we will follow up with further instructions very soon.

Keep up the physical training as you will need it for the next mission! 💪

Take care out there troops X
