We entered 2021 with high hopes and full of new impetus.
The vaccine and the improvement of the situation towards the end of February indicated that in May this year there are real possibilities for the implementation of UTVV 2021.
In numerous discussions with the relevant institutions (Ministry of Education and National Health Institute, AZS, OKS), we prepared for the implementation in May. Unfortunately, in the last few days, we have received a definite negative answer with proposals to wait for the improvement of the epidemiological situation, or to organize a race for registered athletes without recreational runners, which is not acceptable for us.
We believe that the epidemic will not last indefinitely and we are confident that the distribution of the vaccine by the summer or the autumn period brought our lives back to normal.
Therefore, we decided to move UTVV to the last weekend in October, so it will take place from 29.10. to 31.10.2021.
Implementation of UTVV in October 2021:
Is in accordance with the Regulations of UTVV 2021, published on the website https://ultratrail.si/rules-and-registration/
Allows the participation of a larger number of competitors and not only registered athletes
Enables the participation of foreign competitors as well
We offer to you two options:
1. Transfer of the registered entry fee to the October date from 29.10. to 31.10.2021.
2. Possibility of refund of the entry fee in accordance with the Regulations of UTVV, namely refund of 60% of the paid entry fee and bonus code with a 20% discount for registration for the UTVV in May 2022.
In case that you will not be able to travel in October 2021due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, you may defer registration to 2022 (This option will be possible from September 2021).
UTVV organizers stay with you! We look forward to your personal success and motivate you to spend your time actively in nature! Looking ahead with positive vibes, we hope to see you all at the trail running events as soon as possible!
