OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUÉ

 

Estimados Dear runners, volunteers, collaborators and sponsors of the Basque Ultra Trail Series Circuit.

Due to the health alert caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus and given the evidence that the current situation is going to last for the next few weeks, since the organization of the Basque Ultra Trail Series Circuit we have made the decision to POSTPONE the test, scheduled for days 1 to 3 May 2020.

We consider that the serious health and social situation that we are going through prevents Gasteiz-Iruñea from carrying out the due guarantees of safety and quality at a time of global crisis such as the current one, in which we also believe that solidarity and our hobbies, such as trail running, as much as we are passionate, go to the background.

After analyzing in depth the different possibilities of a new date and after verifying the saturation of races that will take place in the last four-month period of the year, we have decided that the test will be held on May 7/9, 2021.

The unique configuration of the BUTS Circuit, with a different test each year, allows us this option, which we believe is most appropriate to guarantee both the safety of participants and volunteers and the quality of the race. We are sure of your understanding, which we sincerely appreciate.

This means that in 2021 two tests of the II Basque Ultra Trail Series Circuit will be carried out:

  • Gasteiz-Iruñea ……….. 7/9 May
  • Iruñea-Donostia ……… 23/25 July

Of course, registration for the race is still in force for 2021 and for those participants who for any reason cannot or want to do it on the new date, from the organization we will provide them, despite not being included in the regulations, the possibility of transferring the bib to a new participant.

Finally, we want to express our sincere thanks to the volunteers, collaborators and sponsors for your effort and understanding. We also want to send a big hug and convey all our love and solidarity to all of you who are experiencing this pandemic personally or in your closest environment. Many moods!

With everyone’s effort and commitment we will soon meet again in the mountains.

See you in 2021!

Bilbao, March 23, 2020
