Event Cancellation Announcement

Published on: 14/09/2020

Dear Participants

We regret to announce the cancellation of Raleigh Challenge – Wilson Trail 2020 originally scheduled for 17 – 18 October, including all courses, viz., Tornado 160, Whole Course, Day Course and Night Course.

When COVID-19 first appeared early this year, we have been keeping a close watch on the local situation, paying heed to disease prevention measures the Government implements, especially those related to social distancing, in order to give a critical assessment on the feasibility of the Event still being held as scheduled.  Lately, the infection figure has shown sign of coming down, and the Government has subsequently relaxed some of the restrictive measures.  However, most of these measures remain in place, and the social gather ban still imposes strict limit on group gathering.  With little chance of further relaxation in the coming month to an extent which allows the Event to be held as planned, the Organizer has no choice but to cancel the Event.

According to our email of 28 July informing participants of options in case of event cancellation, the following options are now provided for all registered teams and T160 Solo:

1. Transfer the registration to RCWT 2021 under the same course;

2. If the team or T160 Solo decides not to transfer the registration to RCWT 2021, the Organizer will refund 50% of application fee and all donations.

Details and administrative arrangements concerning these two options will be provided in another email tomorrow.

We express once again our gratitude to all our participants, volunteers, sponsors and supporting organizations for their unfailing support to Raleigh Hong Kong.

Best regards
Organizing Committee
