Official Event Communication - 26 Extreme Ltd

Postponement of The Wall Adventure Duathlon 2018

11thOctober 2018


It is with regret that we have to inform our participants of our final decision to postpone the Wall Duathlon, scheduled for 13thOctober 2018 until a later date in the calendar, which will be released to registered participants in the coming days as we work with landowners.

Storm Callum has been forecast for Friday, 12thOctober 2018 and has been classed as a Yellow Alert by the met office. As we informed participants on Tuesday, 9thOctober, this could prevent course marking activities from taking place, however as of today, Silent Valley have announced that they are closing the facility on Friday the 12thof October for safety reasons, which in turn affects our ability to prepare the area for Early Saturday morning arrival. After further discussion, today with Northern Ireland Water there is further doubt as to whether or not the Silent Valley will be able to open on Saturday morning.

The current coastal forecast for Saturday morning according to the Met Office is for heavy and persistent rain between 10am – 1pm with strong wind gusts in excess of 40mph. The Mountain forecasts are predicting gale force wind gusts in excess of 60mph, persistent rain, poor visibility as well as an official MET office AMBER warning for rain with possible flooding.

To this end, we are left with no choice but to postpone as to proceed with the event would pose a risk to competitor and crew safety.

All participants will be automatically entered to the new event, but then will have the option to swap to another event in the 26extreme portfolio, or to redeem their entry fee as credit to enter any 26extreme event for one calendar year after date of issue. This credit will be in the form of a voucher code, and can be transferred to any registered user of SiEntries. To further read our terms and conditions, please click HERE.

We apprectiate that this is a disappointing outcome, and we thank you in avance for your patience while we schedule a new race.

Kind Regards,

Lucy, Ian & the 26Extreme Crew
