Georgia 2020 Postponed due to Coronavirus / COVID-19
It is yet another heavy-hearted decision that we have had to make. As an organization, we have tried to remain positive and hopeful that we would be able to safely stage RacingThePlanet: Georgia 2020. However, given the international travel restrictions and increasing levels of COVID-19 worldwide, we are very sad to announce that the race will be postponed until 2021.
This has not been an easy decision, as the COVID-19 landscape is constantly changing with some rays of hope each day followed by hotspots of concern. While we were hopeful that the country of Georgia would be opening up to international tourism from July 1st, because of recent epidemiological changes, the country will be postponing the opening of its borders. We have explored the option to postpone the race to a later date this year, but because of the general level of uncertainty due to the pandemic and expected weather conditions later in the year in Georgia, this is not feasible.
The good news is that RacingThePlanet: Georgia will be rescheduled to take place from 15 - 21 August 2021.
There are many factors which we have had to take into consideration, and we understand that this date change may not be possible for everyone. If you are not able to take part in the race, your entry can be transferred to another race in 2020 or 2021 without penalty.
