Event update from May, 19th, 2020
SportScheck RUN BLN 2020 cannot take place as planned
Hopefully you are all healthy and can still train regularly. We runners always need goals, because one of the basic ideas of our sport is running to get somewhere. Now we have to inform you that one of your and our next goals, the SportScheck RUN BLN 2020, cannot take place on August 23, 2020, as planned.
This decision is based on the fact that events with more than 1,000 people present at the same time have been banned by the Berlin authorities until August 31, 2020. This ban, made in accordance with the Infection Protection Act § 32 Sentence 1, helps to slow down the further spread of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. As big as the disappointment for everyone may be now, we must not forget that this decision serves our common goal: We want to be back at running events as soon as possible: you as participants, and we as organizers.
Further information about replacement options will follow
We don’t want the training kilometres you have invested and the work we have done in the run-up to the SportScheck RUN BLN 2020 to simply go to waste. For these reasons, we are examining the possibility of a later alternative date. In the event of a complete cancellation of the SportScheck RUN BLN 2020, we are also working on options, which will include a suitable offer for each of you. In order to get results as soon as possible, despite being on short-time work, we ask for your patience. Furthermore, please refrain for a while from contacting us by phone, mail or via social media channels. As soon as we have news, we will contact you directly.
Let us stay healthy and don't lose sight of our common goals!
Your team from SCC EVENTS
