seriously influenced.This spring there were a lot of competitions, including formula 1, the coronavirus is dangerous and since China did not tell about it right away, many got sick. Formula 1 should be held where there are sick people. .but I believe that the coronavirus will not be able to hold out until the summer!
As far as I know, all sports events are now canceled. Championships and Olympics and Eurovision have been canceled. In general, because of this virus, life has become boring and difficult ....... Sad.
Almost all martial arts tournaments have been canceled. It is especially a pity that the UFC fights are in limbo now, even the most anticipated events, which have been in development for a year already. Like Habib-Ferguson.
Mass sports went underground. Training and competition are now called "walks" or "funerals" or "thumping". No paramedics required. And no one is responsible for the children. Everyone protects himself from injuries, trains himself, competes himself. The presence of other participants in the walk is a coincidence.
The coronavirus has had a serious impact on sports. The participants lost the opportunity to compete: many were preparing for the spring, throughout the winter. For many, this was a preparatory period. And, unfortunately, now there is not a single competition where they can test their readiness. If he talks about the organizers of the marathon, the cancellation of events will entail financial instability or even bankruptcy of some companies. Agreements with some partners, obligations of partners to the organizers will not be fulfilled. The consequence of this is the return of money, which the organizers are obliged to return.
Regarding the Moscow Marathon, we have canceled only two events that were supposed to take place in April. This is the April race, which was scheduled for April 5, and the Fox Mountain cross, which was to take place in the second week of April. One of the events was postponed to June: the April race will be held on June 28th. Spring cross "Fox Mountain" has been canceled, and all participants will automatically receive registration for our autumn cross. We have not rescheduled any of the other events, because our next global event is the Moscow Half Marathon. It is due to take place on May 31, and we hope that by that time everything related to the pandemic will have subsided and that sporting events will resume in May. And since the Moscow Half Marathon will take place at the end of the month, we hope that the May event will take place. If it does not take place, then we will have to postpone it to the second half of the year. In the second half of the year there will already be a lot of events, not only ours, but also partnerships. People will have a wide choice, but many will prefer to run at large events, and small ones will not get their participants.
I will add that during this period, if you look at our company, we switched to remote control. We are still working on projects, looking to the future with optimism, we understand that these are temporary measures that everyone must go through. But nothing stops: we see the support of the participants who write on our pages in social networks, words of support so that we do not lose heart. Everyone is ready to support us, and we are glad of this circumstance.
