Ambleside Dash Duathlon 2019 Review

I had been looking for an olympic distance duathlon close to home and found the ‘Ambleside Dash Duathlon 2019’. The event date was 21st July 2019 and you could register online up to 18th July or pay on the day.

For 7 weeks I trained specifically for this course. I booked a day off work and I booked accommodation in Windermere.

On the 7th July, two weeks before the event I browsed to the site (http://www.getsetnorth.org/ambleside-dash-duathlon/4590122261) to find the event date had changed to 14th June 2020. I emailed both their email addresses on their contact page and asked about registering for this year's event.

To this day, no response.

I phoned the mobile number on their contact page twice. Both times it went to Voicemail.

There is nothing on their website anywhere that stated the event was cancelled. Let’s hope nobody wasted good time and money taking time off work, booked accommodation and turned up on the day to compete in a race that did not happen.
