22nd August 2020, West Donegal

The WAAR organising committee have had an emergency meeting and in the light of the fast moving Coronavirus pandemic, as necessity, we have made the decision to postpone the event. The last 48 hours has seen a real escalation in the situation. It was felt that the next few weeks will see this only escalate further.

While all our voluntary work is focused on running WAAR, we must prioritise the health and well being of competitors and their families, as well as the army of helpers and volunteers needed for race day.

There is no set guidance yet available on how long this situation will continue but looking at the Donegal and National race calendar we are seeking to have the race rescheduled for Saturday August 22nd 2020, which wasn’t an easy decision with such a busy calendar ahead. We hope this allows enough time for the restrictions to be lifted.

You have 3 options:

1. Transfer to the new date of August 22nd 2020

2. Donate your entry fee to the our chosen Wellbeing charity.

3. Receive a refund less admin fee.

If you would like to transfer to the 22nd August 2020 event then you need do nothing - your entry will be automatically moved across.

If you are unable to make the new date and would like to donate your entry fee to our chosen Wellbeing Charity or receive a refund, then please wait for an email with further information in the coming week.

We will request you to make your selection by the 29th March.

We apologise for any inconvenience our rescheduled date causes. In particular for all those people hoping to take part in their first WAAR event.

We understand this date won’t suit everyone but it’s more important for us to reschedule the date rather than cancel the event, for the wellbeing of our loyal competitors.

We thank everyone for their continued support as well as our valued sponsors.

PLEASE BE PATIENT WHILE OUR VOLUNTARY COMMITTEE WORK AS FAST AS THEY CAN TO DEAL WITH ANY QUERIES DURING THIS CHALLENGING SITUATION.

Stay positive, Stay safe, Keep your distance, Wash your hands, Smile and keep the head up.
