Following a recent survey which was sent to entrants, a Race Organizing Committee meeting and consultation with St Helena, due to Covid-19, with the available time left before the intended start for the 2020 event running out, the outstanding challenges would detrimentally effect the race.
- Quarantine requirements at St Helena
- Return Flights to Cape Town
- Returning South African’s quarantine requirements.
These items are still a challenge and likely to remain a challenge, therefore, the decision has been taken to postpone the 2020 event to 26 December 2021.
The decision has not been an easy one for the organizers, but given the unprecedented circumstances caused by Covid-19, we are confident that it is the correct decision.
The updated NoR for the 2021 event will be made available later this year.
