Over 10,000 people have registered to attend the National Running Show in London in June and it is my firm belief that we owe those people an event so we intend to go ahead and deliver on our promises. Our first priority is to protect the health and well-being of our visitors but we won’t react to hyperbole and we intend to remain calm, listen to the experts and to carry on. We won’t be swayed by media hype and we will react to the advice of the government and their medical advisers, not the tabloid press. As things stand – the show will go on!
IF the situation gets worse and we are forced to cancel or delay the event to protect people, then we will do so without hesitation. At that point, we will of course transfer exhibitors, visitors and sponsors to a future event or we will refund monies where that isn’t possible. We won’t take risks with your safety and we will do as the government advises.
The running community (as always) have been incredibly supportive and I’d like to say a massive thank you to the thousands of visitors and hundreds of exhibitors who continue to support us.
I will continue to blog on this issue over the coming weeks and if anyone would like to contact me directly then please email me at [email protected]
