We have received a massive wave of support and sympathy by mail and in social media after being forced to cancel Skarverennet due to the corona virus situation. You tell us to carry on and encourage us to start planning next year’s race, and we are pretty impressed and overwhelmed by you finding the time to think of us in these difficult times. Thank you all, thank you very much!
We do as we are told and are happy to announce that the date for Skarverennet 2021 is set, April 17th.
Practical 2020 refund information
Arranging the Skarverennet race is by far the most important event funding all the activities our sports club Geilo IL do for our members including kids. This year’s coronavirus cancellation, which we accepted immediately due to the publicly well
known health risk, will influence our economy and other activities. That having been said we have put funds aside during many successful years of arrangement to prepare for difficult times.
We would very much appreciate to welcome you all back next year, and due to that offer an improved 70% refund on your prepaid 2020 admission fee, which is better than previously published under our terms & conditions.
As an additional benefit we will provide you exclusive pre-registration to Skarverennet 2021. We will notify you in a few days time regarding this priority option offered to registered 2020 participants only.
Step-by-step guide to refund
Our payment solutions partner, EQ Timing, will send a separate refund instructional mail (March 30th, 2020) to all registered billing addresses. Following the instructions will lead to two options:
1) I want to support Skarverennet/Geilo IL by not claiming a refund.
We have received a number of mails and comments from participants wanting to support us by not claiming their refund, and we are forever grateful to all.
At the same time we also understand that many do want to claim their refund, especially in these challenging times of uncertainty.
If you don´t want to claim your refund, no action is required.
2) 70% refund claim
Follow the instructions given in the mail from EQ Timing (March 30th, 2020). Please note that you must place your claim no later than May 1st 2020.
