Mountain Mayhem 2020 Cancelled Due to Coronavirus

Yesterday Mountain Mayhem organisers took the heartbreaking decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the event. The following statement has been issued by the organiser:

“Coronavirus Cancels Mountain Mayhem

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 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.”

What about other Mountain bike Events for 2020?

Assuming there isn’t a ban on any such meetings from the Government it would still seem likely other events will be affected, certainly those that have a high initial financial outlay and require cancellation insurance.

It also begs the question how far reaching the impact of COVID 19 will be on the U.K. economy will be and it would seem possible other events such as music festivals, motor racing etc. may suffer the same fate.
