First of all, we would like to thank everyone again for their support and understanding back in early March when we decided to cancel the 2020 event.
We have considered the situation carefully over the last few months, and as of now there are still many uncertainties about what the situation will be next spring. Because of this we are choosing to make the early decision that the Highland Fling will not take place in 2021.
The main reasons for this decision are as follows:
1) We do not want to be responsible for facilitating ANY spread of Covid-19 within the population.
2) The event takes over 12 months to organise and at present it is impossible to confirm various important bookings for April 2021. All the businesses integral to the event were massively supportive when we cancelled this year’s event back in March and we cannot ask them to take our bookings, knowing there is a high possibility that the event will again not go ahead and they will again lose out financially.
We know that runners love doing races and this news may be disappointing but safety has always been our main priority at the event. During the current pandemic this priority also extends to the wider population.
Take care everyone
The Fling Team
