White Rose Ultra Summer

sent by Organic Adventure on 05/06/2020 at 12:28
Good morning all you amazing lot, …You have not been forgotten about

You all should now know, we have already moved this years' WRU Summer 30 event to June 19th 2021 and the Winter WRU is still going ahead on the same date, no change!

But and its a big BUT!

I'm looking into ways we could still go ahead this year, looking at removing risk and adding a level of social distancing that would make it acceptable to all!

Here is the basic idea, yes it's going to be a right pain to make happen and absolutely please let me know your thoughts, ways it could be improved on etc, it is easy to miss something that you haven’t!

Outside, collect race numbers and then head off. There would be no baggage store or water etc.

Staggered start times;
Waves of no more than 6 runners starting at the following times:
We would have to pre-allocate waves and start times and if you miss it we would have to move you to the next available one.

We have a great new system that will put your results online within seconds of crossing the finish line, this requires no timing chip just a quick hello to the finish line manager.

Aid stations;
You would have to be self-sufficient for the whole event, we will not be able to have or offer water and snacks on the route, or have any CP’s so as to prevent gathering points.

This would have to be even more low key than usual with just a quick congrats and hand over of mementoes, awards for 1st places etc would be given as you cross the line.

We won’t be able to accommodate them this time, one thing we can do is give a list of locations along the route where they could catch up with you. (Going to add this info to the WRU for future events anyway)

This is at the moment an issue, they are closed and I’m not sure when they will be allowed to open again and, even then how many people they will be allowed in at anyone one time, this adds an issue with toilets and changing facilities etc.

…How would you enter, if you have already entered, your details will be automatically moved over to the new date, if you can’t make this, you will then be moved over to the 2021 date just like before.
If you have not entered yet, you could simply sign up paying £10.00 deposit to secure your place and pay the remaining £33 the week leading up to the new event date.

Please do not get your hopes up, at this moment all this planning could be pointless and the WRU Summer 30 will have to remain postponed until 2021. And as mentioned above, none of this affects the Winter WRU this November.

Hope some of this makes sense!


Events 2020

sent by Organic Adventure on 07/05/2020 at 18:44

All 2020 events from April 1st through to August 31st will be moved to 2021 dates as follows, please see image. 

Your Entry

All entries already registered and paid up to May 7th 2020, will automatically move forward to the 2021 date above, if the 2021 date is not suitable we will move your entry over to the 2022 date for you. This can only be done in the month leading up to the event so please do not send us emails requesting this now as we will not be able to process them. We are hopeful that we will not have to add any events later in the year to the list. 

If you have already entered and paid your entry fee you do not need to do anything further. There will be no name changes or additional transfers for any of these places, they are yours for either 2020 or 2021.


We wanted to inform you ourselves! 

As many of you are aware there have been a few event companies go into liquidation over the past 5 to 6 weeks, leaving many people out of pocket with no option of a future event or anything. We fear many more companies will be joining them, we have lost a t-shirt supplier and at this moment we are uncertain as to where we will be able to acquire medals or other mementoes as many of those suppliers have disappeared as well. 

We know at the beginning of this current situation we had mentioned that we would offer a 60% refund to those who genuinely could not make an adjusted date for an event, sadly, after looking into the situation we are now presented with now, financially we just can not offer to do this without ending the rest of the events and the business.

Other Events.

The smaller events such as Urban Night Series, 4 Seasons 10k etc will all go ahead on revised dates as soon as we have the go-ahead from the government. We are working on a few new events that will join in as midweek races and will let you have more info on these, but again won’t be able to release dates just yet! 

Organic Adventure

It is not all doom and gloom and as we have always done we are evolving and growing, we have a couple of new team members joining us they are already working on the new events and will be taking over the race directing at many of the other events too (Wane knows some of you just cheered!) will tell you more about them in the next few weeks or as soon as they dare send a photo in for a little bio. 

We know this is possibly not the news any of us want to hear at the moment, but we feel this is the best way to keep the events going for us all.
