Hell of a Hill Announcement 13th October 2020

 

We are absolutely devastated to announce that we have been forced to postpone this years Hell of a Hill 5 Marathons in 5 Day event in November 2020.

Government guidelines and England Athletics currently still allow us to stage running events as long as they are Covid Secure and we produce Covid Risk Assessments to all authorities and Landowners where the public footpaths run through. We have done all what has been asked of us and more, we have limited the entries to just 50 runners per day on a 26.2 mile course, and spent huge amounts of money making it covid secure as well as purchasing everything for the event in advance. This event has never been a for profit event, everything we get in goes back into staging the event as it is such a unique challenge we love welcoming runners back each year time and time again.

United Utilities who own around 90 percent of the land we run on have told us “Due to the Covid Pandemic , events are no longer permitted on United Utilities Land , it  is unlikely that the restrictions will be lifted by November so the event cannot take place between the 11th – 15th November 2020”.

We have challenged the decision as other land owners have allowed us to run the event and been very supportive as long as we make it covid secure, what is interesting is that UU allowed a certain other company to run 300 triathletes on a similar shorter route setting off in waves back in August up and down the Pike but our 50 runners setting off in waves of 5 are not permitted to do so, we currently have had no comment from United Utilities why this is when government guidance has not changed in this period for running events.  However, as United Utilities will still not issue us a permit to run as of the 13th October and are no longer responding to us we have been forced to postpone the event.

Run it virtually –

We are hoping that the runners will not be defeated and will still run the event as a virtual event along with the 250 new hell of a hill medal bling we have, hoodies, ruck sacks, buffs, beanies, etc etc.  

We are putting together an unprecedented virtual event. If runners take the virtual option, the following will apply.

25% off 2021 HOAH Event

5 in 5 finishers will receive in addition a Hell of a Hill trophy

Virtual event will run from 13th October 2020 to 31st December 2020, just send us your proof to admin@time2runevents.uk.
