At 6am European time athletes started to get emails and various social media channels were filled with the news that the 2021 Challenge Roth would move to September. The race organization also made themselves available to a Q&A via Facebook live.
"DATEV Challenge Roth will take place… but not in July. Due to the still dynamic COVID situation we will postpone DATEV Challenge Roth by two months - from 4 July to 5 September 2021. Athletes can transfer their registration from 4 July to 5 September or, alternatively, move it to next year's race, which will take place on 3 July 2022, all free of charge.
Cancellation is also possible, in which the athletes receive a refund of their entry fee less a processing fee.
We know that it's not easy and the postponement of the race might not be in everyone's favor, but we try to make the very best decision for the sport especially you the athletes," was the message posted on the Challenge Roth Facebook page.
