We’ve been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely in the hopes that we would be able to make The Dramathon 2020 happen. However, it’s become clear that it’s going to be impossible for us to deliver a quality event with more than 1500 runners in October in a rural community.

We don’t want to deliver a substandard event, and we’re all about the full-on complete Dramathon experience (which is why we’ve decided that a ‘virtual’ alternative isn’t right for us). With unknown challenges ahead, we want to give our competitors, sponsors, suppliers and volunteers confirmation of postponement as early as possible. And so sadly we have to postpone The Dramathon to the 16th October 2021.

We’re not a huge outfit, we’re a team of 3 who love running and whisky. We appreciate your support at this difficult time and we want to ensure we can deliver The Dramathon for years to come. We hope that you are able to stick with us and we look forward to seeing you in 2021 for a celebration of all things running and whisky.

What does this mean for 2020 competitors?

All entries for The Dramathon 2020 will be automatically rolled over to our 2021 event on the 16th October. This covers Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and Relay marathon team entries. You don’t need to do a thing.

If you can’t make our 2021 date and would like a refund, please email quoting your run distance (marathon, half marathon, 10K, relay team), by the Saturday 17th October 2020 and we will refund you 100% of entry fee less Entry Central transaction fee. Please please please state your run distance in your email as it will help us process your refund more quickly. From 18th October 2020 our Standard Terms and Conditions will apply to refunds.

Athletes with Booking Protection who defer to 2021 will automatically have their Booking Protect cover roll over with their entry. Athletes who accept the deferral but who consequently cannot make the new date will not be able to claim from Booking Protect. Athletes need to be unable to attend for the reasons insured.

As mentioned, we’re a small team and will be processing everything as quickly as we can, but please give us 10 working days to respond to emails.
