ANNOUNCEMENT

NOTICE OF DEFERMENT - NEW DATES

Foremost, we hope this find you in great spirit and in good health.

In lieu of the current situations and progress we have made with event during the difficult moments brought about by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and after much consultation with our respective stakeholders and Salomon Malaysia, we have to come to a painful and difficult decision to defer the complete Salomon X-Trail Malaysia Series 2020 to 2021.

This we believe would be the best way to move forward and in the best interest of all runners, the event teams from the 5 states, our partners, our sponsors, their family and especially the people living in the 5 towns.

· All registered runners will be deferred to 2021.

· There will be no refund and if you cant make it on the dates provided, you may write in to transfer the slot to another runner during the respective registration period as mentioned herein below.

· All registration is suspended as of now and will resume base on the followings dates:- Putrajaya (01.01.2021 - 30.04.2021), Perak (01.02.2021 - 31.05.2021), Sarawak - Melaka (01.04.2021 - 31.07.2021), Penang (01.05.2021 - 31.08.2021)

With this deferment, we will continue to scrutinize the situations pertaining to the pandemic and will make announcement when the time is right with regards to "SALOMON #TimeToPlay CLINICS" that we will be organizing in the 5 states during the run up to the series in 2021.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for any inconvenience or hardship this announcement creates but would like to reassure you that this is made with everyone best interest in mind after so much work and preparation have been made on this #RoadToTrail project.

We hope everyone of you will continue to stay safe, stay healthy, stay strong and stay positive. God knows how much we misses everyone and can't wait to head back into trails with you.
