New date for the King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020 - King's Cup Gravel Festival

New date for the King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020

The King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020 has been rescheduled to October 23-25, 2020. Unfortunately, the current pandemic development, government guidance and advice from authorities has made the original event date unfeasible. We have made the appropriate arrangements and look forward to welcoming you to the King’s Forest, Suffolk in late October.

Malcolm Smith, Director of Golazo Cycling says “clearly we are disappointed that we couldn’t meet the September date, but as with many sporting events this year, the pandemic has brought with it a lot of uncertainty. We have always had a contingency fall-back position in mind and that is the new revised date of October 23rd to 25th 2020. We have had to revert to this date because we have been informed the next review date of the forest use regulations by Forestry England will not occur until the week before the festival was due to happen. This would not leave sufficient time to safely produce the event to the high standards our participants expect and also leave insufficient time for the participants to plan their participation. We will keep you informed of further developments as soon as we are aware of them, but are confident the new date can be met.”
