The first Northwich Krazy Races is to be postponed until 2021, organisers have announced.
The event was initially due to take place in Verdin Park on June 14 but was pushed back until September 6 following the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the country going into lockdown.
To ensure the safety of all involved organisers have now taken the decision to postpone for this year and will host the event on June 13th, 2021.
Organised by Sarah Belcher, of Sarah Belcher Events, the event was one of three planned to take place this year. The others, Birmingham & Sandwell Krazy Races and Shrewsbury Wacky Races have also been pushed back until 2021.
“I have had confirmation that all three venues will not allow major events during September and October and I have to say that I am in complete agreement,” she said.
“This terrible pandemic is still with us and will clearly have a bearing on what we can and can’t do over many months to come. Our hearts go out to all those people who have been directly affected by Covid-19 and it’s only right that we do everything we can to ensure everyone is safe.
“It means I will be postponing all three events until next year. Northwich Krazy Races, which was to have been held on September 6, will now go ahead on June 13, 2021, Shrewsbury Wacky Races due to take place on September 19 will be held on May 30 next year, while the Birmingham & Sandwell Krazy Races moves back from October 4 until July 4, 2021.
“I am sorry about the postponements but am sure everyone understands the situation and will be looking forward to being with us when we can stage the events next year.”
