Decision concerning organization of UKP 2020Estimated reading time: 2 min.
Dear Supporters of Kaszubska Poniewierka, Volunteers, Runners,
In face of the current situation related to COVID-19, we have decided not to organize UKP this year. I am aware that many of you may feel disappointed because you have reserved the date of our event in your running calendars. Quite often it was a target start. We are also extremely sad. We put a lot of work into the preparation, we discussed new ideas – believe us that making this decision was not easy for us. However, I trust that this move is the only right one, considering the future of this event.
We have been organizing UKP for 5 years now only out of passion, for fun and great emotions that accompany it and a desire to help children from the Pomorskie Hospicjum dla Dzieci. We were lucky enough to suspend registration at the right time, without charging any start fees. We did not create unnecessary promises that we could not keep now.
I want to emphasize that in the future we are interested in organizing the event only in the closest to the traditional formula, i.e. with the possibility of direct competition and collective experiencing of all these great emotions that float in the air and are shared with all participants and volunteers working on the race. That’s what the spirit of Poniewierka is!
Not be so completely sad and nostalgic, I have a request for you. Please book yourself September 18, 2021 for the next edition of UKP, which we hope will be able to take place safely in a new reality. As part of the preparations, we invite you to train discovering the picturesque and demanding parts of the UKP route, on which we have hidden a lot of interesting segments on Strava.
