As some of you know, I was training for a 24 hours race, which was supposed to take place on 17-18 April in Valencia. As expected, the race was postponed, the new date is sometimes in September. At least that's what we know now, things may change until then. Some races I was eyeing, like the Ultratour do Leman, in Switzerland, were cancelled completely.
I'm optimistic, though, as the 24 hours de Valencia was already booked, so people paid for it before the crisis and I believe some of the expenses are already processed, so there won't be possible for the organizers to cancel completely and refund all the participants. Whereas races which were later in the year, like Ultratour du Leman, didn't have enough paying customers and none of the expenses processed, so for them it's easier to postpone.
I personally look forward to this 24 hours race, for which I already started to train. It was really hard to start running again after 2 months of almost complete stillness. But it felt so good.
I'm curious, what are your experiences with long distance running this year? Do you have any plans? Do you have any of the races postponed or modified completely? Let's have a conversation about this.
