WYE VALLEY TRAIL RACE
The Wye Valley Trail Race 2020 had to be postponed due to Covid – 19 and Government regulations on events – we are very sorry about this. Everyone’s place will be automatically carried over to the race date for 2021 and there will be no additional charge for this.
If Government guidelines allow trail events like this later in the year – we may well put on some smaller events for people to take part in.
Thanks – Dave Talbot Adventure Events Team
