Dulux London Revolution

SAFE AND SECURE IN 2021

The latest news regarding COVID-19

LAST UPDATED: 01/04/2021

As we continue to see the easing of restrictions across the UK, we know many of you will be eager to understand any impact the latest guidelines will have on Dulux London Revolution. The current roadmap set out by the UK government intends to lift all restrictions on 21/06/2021.  We remain optimistic that this guidance would allow Dulux London Revolution to take place in September.  However, we are aware that these timings are subject to change and measures to reduce the spread of the virus may still be required in September. With the event taking place at the end of the summer, we recognise that it is too early to advise participants on any social distancing measures that may be needed.

This page will be updated monthly and will be the official source for announcements regarding the event. We will of course provide any update should the situation change and ensure all participants are updated in a timely manner. The page also contains links to details of our COVID-19 refund policy, deferral options and other FAQ’s at the bottom. We suggest bookmarking this page to stay up to date with the latest news.

Should you have any questions in the meantime please contact us via email, contact details here, and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Postponement Announcement – 04/02/2021 

After discussions with suppliers, venues and partners we have taken the difficult decision to postpone Dulux London Revolution from May 15th-16th 2021 to September 25th-26th 2021.

Our highly experienced team have been working tirelessly to model the impact of potential COVID-related restrictions on the event and we believe that by moving to September, we will have the best possible chance of delivering all the key elements that have made the event so popular with riders, runners and walkers since its launch in 2012.

We understand that this postponement will be disappointing for some of you. However, the safety of our participants, crew, suppliers and partners comes first in every decision we make.

We hope as many of you as possible will join us in September. This would significantly support our business, that has been severely impacted by the pandemic. However, if this doesn’t suit your situation, there are other options available outlined below. We hope you feel they offer you a fair range to choose from.

Like you, we can’t wait to be back into the open air safely supporting you on your incredible endeavours. We will continue to work flat out to ensure that day comes as soon as possible.

 

A note on other Threshold events: Each of our events brings with it a unique set of operational considerations around COVID risks. These are particularly affected by format, location, scale and date. As it stands, we are planning on running all of our other events on the original published dates. As with Dulux London Revolution, we will update you as soon as anything changes. You can also find our latest updates on our dedicated COVID-19 website pages that are updated regularly.

If you need some more time to decide. You have until May 16th 2021 to confirm which option you would like to proceed with, after that date, we will revert to the event Rules and Regulations. We understand everyone’s situation is different and so we hope the options available seem fair.

Our Rules and Regulations have also been updated to reflect the new dates. If you have any questions about them, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team and we’ll be happy to help.
