Hi everyone and thanks so much once again for your patience. We had hoped that the Something Wild Festival would be sufficiently late in the year, to ‘outlive’ the worst of the Coronavirus. However events have proven that this is not going to be possible, even with careful safety guidelines. Reluctantly therefore, we have to announce that the Something Wild Festival is postponed until next year.
The Good News We have established an alternative virtual event for all entrants participating in the 5k, 10k or half marathon, marathon or ultra. If you have already entered any of the Something Wild Festival races, we will send you a 100 % discount code to enter with on the link below.
You can either run your own route and simply send in your evidence to our partners at Lets Do This (see link below) recordable on any GPS tracking device, or run the ‘official route’ from Badgers Holt car park in Dartmoor National Park over a 72 hour period between Friday July 31st and Sunday August 2nd. There will be two leaderboards (one for each race category ‘official route’ and your own route) and medals will be posted out to all finishers. Spot prizes will be given for the best selfie photos sent in to Lets Do This. (see address below).
We will be posting the race GPX and map on our website at www.something-wild.co.uk with route descriptions. We recommend that you get in a recce run of the 5k and 10k route before doing the ‘official route’.
If you do not wish to take part in our Virtual event, we will automatically transfer your entry(s) to next year’s event. This includes camping and kid’s races. For those of you who want to do the virtual event but would like to be refunded a camping ticket, please email us at email@example.com and we will refund you.
If you enter the Virtual Event, part of your entry will go towards the Devon and Cornwall 4x4 Response Team, who have served us so well over the years and who have been taking emergency PPE supplies to NHS workers during the pandemic. For those of you who are not interested in any of the above, we can refund you HALF the entry fee and we will make a donation to Devon and Cornwall 4X4 Response Team. We are offering this last option in good faith but hope that you choose one of the first two options, as our company, like may others, has faced an unprecedented challenge to stay afloat during the Covid pandemic. Please email us at the above address if this applies to you.
Rest assured the Something Wild Festival will be back with a bang next year.
Thank you all again for your patience in these difficult times. Ceri and Ben and the Something Wild Events Team
