ABSAGE / VERSCHIEBUNG SWIM&RUN 2020
First of all we would like to thank you all for the trust you have placed in us.
Many had already registered in advance for this year’s SWIM & RUN COLOGNE on May 31, 2020 or were actually planning to do so in the coming weeks.
We very much appreciate your trust in us and our event.
The closer we get to May 31, 2020, the more our optimism fades that we can align SWIM & RUN COLOGNE as planned.
The increasing number of infections and the protective measures of the federal government currently do not allow any other conclusion than that this fact will accompany us for the next few weeks and months.
Therefore we do not believe that we can keep the existing appointment.
We are in close contact with the Cologne Sports Office, which is trying very hard to offer us an alternative date.
However, since we – like many other beautiful events – rely on Lake Fühlinger See, a move is extremely difficult. To make matters worse, we need a certain lead time to be able to coordinate a swim & run event with such a comprehensive security system, various service providers and a large number of helpers.
Ultimately, we have no choice but to exercise patience. Since we are currently unable to communicate an alternative date and consider the current date no longer valid, we have closed the online registration for the time being and will not open it again until the orientation of the Swim & Run Cologne 2020 seems realistic.
If we cannot find an alternative date and have to completely cancel our beautiful event for this year, we will of course reimburse you for the entry fees paid.
That makes the SWIM & RUN COLOGNE 2021 all the more grandiose !!!
Since we incurred costs well before the event and we also want to behave responsibly towards our service providers, we look forward to any of you who would like to postpone its start to 2021 in the event of a cancellation. But we will clarify that in due course.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you all to stay healthy.
As soon as we receive further information, we will inform you immediately.
I would like to thank all of my friends and helpers who have supported me over the past few years and have made a significant contribution to making SWIM & RUN COLOGNE increasingly popular.
In this context, we want to express our deepest respect to all doctors, nurses, supermarket employees who are currently doing unimaginable things. You are cordially invited to start in 2021. I don’t know how we’re going to finance it, but we’re going to take it from the ribs of some nice sponsor. We can think of something nice for you. 🙏🏼
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our partners and sponsors who have accompanied us over the past few years and who also planned to do so in 2020.
And last but not least, we wish all organizers, event agencies, artists, bands, caterers, restaurants, bars, clubs, festivals, dealers and everyone who is currently struggling so much strength and an unceasing belief in yourself.
With sporty regards
