The LDWA has continued to monitor Her Majesty’s Government advice in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Following a change to the Government advice on 16.03.20, the LDWA National Executive Committee has decided that all challenge events, social walks and other formal LDWA business organised by any of the local groups will be cancelled immediately. The ban will be reviewed by the National Executive Committee weekly or when Government advice alters and any subsequent amendments will be communicated.

The National Executive Committee understands that the decision taken to cancel all challenge events and social walks will be concerning to members. The safety of all our members, whether they are volunteer marshals or entrants, and the association’s ability to deliver a safe environment for all was the reason that the decision has been taken. The Government has advised that everyone should avoid non-essential travel and reduce contact with others in order to slow the spread of the virus. Walking socially would undermine the Government’s advice in relation to both non-essential travel and socialisation.

A decision as to what will happen to Y 100 Sir Fynwy in the future will take place in consultation with the National Executive Committee and the committees of all other planned 100 mile challenge walks. Now that the clause in Rule 7.1 has been invoked, entrants can expect to hear more once a wider consultation has taken place with other stakeholders.

A bulk email will be sent to all local group representatives within the next 48 hours outlining the actions that they must take with details of support that the National Executive Committee can offer during the period in question.
