Giants Run is Cancelled : PLEASE READ.

August 30 @ 12:00 am

This has been quite the year to say the least, with virtually every motorcycling event having being cancelled or postponed. Having initially moved GIANTS2 from its original June date to the very end of August, we had high hopes of staging a successful event. However, the ongoing COVID situation, with its threat of continued localised lockdowns, has forced us to make the painful decision to cancel this year’s event. With only a month to go there is no sign from the government that the restrictions on larger gatherings are likely to be relaxed in time and it simply wouldn’t be possible to have over 120 riders and pillions gather in such a way without flouting the law.

We are so sorry to have to cancel and the organisers are devastated that all the work that’s been put in has gone to waste. Fortunately, the Dorset section is well run and we can just about absorb the costs incurred and will be in the fortunate position to be able to organise GIANTS3 (or possibly 2.1!) in 2021.

If you have already registered for this year, we can offer you three choices:

  1. A guaranteed spot for 2021 with your entry fee rolled over until next year
  2. A guaranteed spot for 2021 and your entry fee donated to our wonderful NHS charities who’ve done so much for us these last few months.
  3. A full refund.

It would be far simpler for the organisers if you were to choose either option 1 or 2, especially if you’d like to attend in 2021. We expect to sell out once again, so by choosing either of those options you are assured of a place. To that end, if we don’t receive a message from you by August 31st, we shall
assume that you are kindly donating your entry fees to suitable NHS charities and you will automatically be enrolled in the 2021 event. If, however, you prefer option 1- guaranteed entry and your entry fee rolled over, or option 3- a refund, please let us know ASAP using this email address to contact us:  events@dorsetvmcc.co.uk

If you have made an overnight camping booking at Henstridge Golf and Leisure, you will need to speak with them (Sandy or Rod) to cancel that. Their telephone number is 01963 362789.

Once again, we apologise for this cancellation, please don’t think we haven’t tried our utmost to stage GIANTS2, but it became clear the virus wasn’t going to allow us the fun of properly getting together this year and we’re not prepared to offer you an inferior experience.

Roll on 2021!
