Egmond-Pier-Egmond on Saturday January 9 is cancelled


Sports organisation Le Champion has decided not to organise any physical events till the 1st of March 2021. With the knowledge of today it is unclear if the guidelines of the government offer any space to organise large events in the coming months. Considering the long preparation time needed and the many uncertain factors now, together with parties involved, is decided to cancel the events. With that Le Champion wants to show responsibility. 
 
‘’An extremely difficult decision’’, stated by general manager of Le Champion, Ron van der Jagt. ’’But also a well-considered decision. The health of people is our highest goal. We want nothing more than inspiring as many people, young and old, to sport and exercise. But we also feel a huge responsibility for the safety and health of your participants, spectators and employees’’. Now that the physical events will not take place until the 1st of March, Le Champion will put even more energy into offering creative, virtual alternatives for cyclists, runners and walkers.
