ŠKODA Tour de Conamara Postponed to 2021
Due to the exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 crisis, the ŠKODA Tour de Conamara is cancelled until Saturday May 29th 2021. The health and wellbeing of our cyclists, event team and host communities continues to be our priority in making this difficult decision. Together we must all play our part in overcoming Covid 19 and believe this is the right decision in these uncertain times, particularly around large scale mass participation events. All ŠKODA Celtic Series cycling events are now postponed until 2021.
Cyclists who have registered can defer their entry to the 2021 event or receive a refund of their entry fee. An email will be sent to all cyclists providing you with these options and details of the seven day window to claim your refund. Full details are as follows
Eventmaster will send an email to all registered cyclists who have a seven day window to process their registration fee refund. After the 18th May the refunds will issue to the card / account you used to pay for the registration. It can take up to 7-10 working days for the banks to process the refunds due to the current volume of such transactions.
If you want to defer your place to 2021:
If you want to transfer your place to the 2021 event, you do not have to do anything!. As long as you don’t cancel we will automatically transfer your entry to the 2021 event. Cyclists are provided with the window to cancel until midnight Monday 18th May 2020 to cancel. If cyclists don’t cancel within this time period, their event entry is automatically moved into the 2021 event.

The cancellation period will not re-open or be extended.
2020 Event Gillet:
If you ordered an event gillet and cancel your place you will be refunded for this. If you postpone to the 2021 event, your gillet order will stand and you will receive the 2021 gillet which remains the same in design.
