The health, safety and wellbeing of all participants, supporters and volunteers will continue to be our top priority. Should we need to cancel Chariots of Fire 2021 due to COVID-19 we will ask you how you would like us to treat your registration fee, we will either issue you a refund or transfer this fee directly to EAAA (excluding any administrative costs incurred).
