Throughout the past 11 months, there’s no doubt that our worlds have been turned upside down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time we have taken immense pride in being an uplifting presence for you when you need it most, whilst also maintaining frequent and honest communications about the return of Maverick Race events.
Based on the Government roadmap announced yesterday (Monday 22nd February 2021), we believe that the return of Maverick Race events fits safely and responsibly into Step 2 of the nationwide roadmap. This step is set to come into action no earlier than April 12th and therefore at this point, we are planning on Maverick Race events returning from that week. This would make our first event back after the easing of lockdown restrictions the Maverick Adidas Terrex Original Kent race on Saturday 17th April.
As ever with this volatile situation, we are proceeding cautiously and always with the view of being adaptable and flexible if we need to be. If we have learnt anything over the past 11 months it is that we must be prepared for last-minute alterations to even the best-laid plans. We are of course aware of the "four tests" that must be satisfied in order for Step 2 to be initiated and that we must all continue playing our part. However, with that being said we must also be raring and ready to go with finally being able to deliver our 2021 calendar.
We hope to see you all really soon for a Maverick Race event. We cannot thank you all enough for your support, enthusiasm and encouragement during this time and we simply cannot wait to be back on the trails with you all later this year.
The Team at Maverick Race
