Decision made to cancel Mayhem 2020 and postpone until 2021
Organisers of Mountain Mayhem, the longest running MTB endurance event in the world, have sent this letter to competitors and media.
Press release: Mountain Mayhem 2020 cancelled
Following the government announcement about the possibility of the cancellation of large public events in order to help stop the spread of Coronavirus, organisers of 2020 Mountain Mayhem 24hr MTB endurance event, due to be held at Marston Lodge on 19th, 20th and 21st June have cancelled the event.
Jill Greenfield, owner and organiser of Mountain Mayhem said “We always take out our insurance policy just before we start ordering all our equipment, as obviously that is a huge expense for us. I checked with our insurer this morning and we were told that it is no longer possible to get any cancellation insurance from any company. We cannot put ourselves, our sponsors, the traders, our suppliers or of course our riders in that position, so we have taken the decision now to cancel Mayhem 2020 and postpone until 2021.
“We hope that everyone will understand our position and the decision we had no choice but to make. We will of course give full refunds to all who have paid to date.”
