This year is shaping up to be a year like no other and in early April we contacted everyone who had booked to take part in Yorkshire True Grit 2020 to let them know that we were cancelling the event due to Covid-19. Over 50% of the booked places took our offer to defer to 2021, and for the rest we have processed (or are processing) refunds for their full entry fee (and any camping fees).
We have also taken the decision to not launch the 5 Forests this year. Whilst we strongly hope that Covid-19 is “under control” by September we don’t feel that, as event organisers, we want to bring a mass gathering event to the North York Moors so close to the “end” of the pandemic.
Sponsors Fenwick’s Bike Products and Vielo are staying with Yorkshire True Grit for 2021, which we are delighted about! Their support is invaluable at times like these.
We will be back in 2021, with some fresh events to add to our line-up! We’re using this time to plan, craft and create some events that will make next year a bumper Yorkshire True Grit year!
Stay Safe Everyone and we hope to see you next year!
