Cancellation of The Mercia Duathlon – Sept 2017
KP Events regrets to inform you that The Mercia Duathlon scheduled for Sunday September 17th has been cancelled. There are two main reasons why we have had take this action at this time.
Firstly this was to be KP Events first Duathlon event and from day one we recognised that external technical support and logistical expertise from outside the company’s usual sources would have to be found and then bought in.
Despite our best efforts to seek this out, as of 1/7/17 this still hasn’t been forthcoming and we are left with little choice other than to cancel the event as there was simply no guarantee that outstanding issues would be resolved within the necessary timescales.
Coupled with this is the fact despite our efforts to seek sponsorship and external funding sources, we only have 50% of the registrations we require as of 1/7/17 to break even on the event. These two factors combined makes us conclude that it is simply hard to project with any confidence that in the remaining few weeks we could resolve all outstanding matters arising and guarantee a successful event in all necessary aspects.
For those who have entered this event please keep reading. By now you will have been sent an email (this may be in your junk box) about your options and our refund procedure. Please reply to this email with details of an account you would like your refund paid in to: name, sort code, account number. All details are secure and then destroyed following refund. Unfortunately we are unable to refund via PayPpal. Refunds will be completed in 7-10 days.
