UT Xinxian in Henan postponed due to landslides
The heavy rainfall in many parts of Asia, specifically northern Asia, over the past weeks is causing problems for plenty of trail running organisations. Unfortunately, we have been informed that UT X, short for Ultra Trail XinXian in Henan Province, China, is also affected. The event - scheduled in November - cannot take place for safety reasons. Please see below's statement from the local race director on behalf of the Organisation Committee of UT X.
On behalf of the organizer of UTX, we are very apologetic to make today's statement that due to severe geological developments of landslides and mud flows caused by recent heavy rainfall in the Xinxian area, we are obliged to postpone our race, UTX, from its originally scheduled date, 12/13 November 2016, to 4/5 April 2017. It is a very difficult decision for us to make, but we need to ensure the safety of the trail course and all the runners and working crew. We are sorry for the change of race date, and we will be responsible to take care of reimbursements of registration fees, or forward your race entry automatically to the new date 4/5 April 2017.
We humbly apologise for the inconvenience caused by the change of date, and please note we have deepest appreciation for your support.
--- Race Director of UTX
Please note that UT X keeps its spot on the Asia Trail Master race calendar, and has thus been added on 4/5 April 2017.
