COVID specific cancellation policy:
1- Should Appenninica be canceled by the organizer due to the COVID-19 emergency, the participation fee isn’t lost and it will become a credit towards the 2022 edition. Appenninica will base its decision according to the decrees of the Italian Government and WHO guidelines with the goal to protect the health of the athletes and staff.
2- Should an athlete withdraw from the 2021 edition due to reasons linked to the COVID-19 health emergency and backed by objective and proven reasons (for example restrictions to travel enforced by their countries including mandatory quarantine entering Italy or going back home), in such event the participation fee will be rolled over to the 2022 event.
3- All riders registered have the option to cancel according to the actual cancellation policy or to roll over their registration as a full credit towards the 2022 event as per article 2 above (no price changes or gimmick).
None will lose the money paid to take part in the race due to COVID-19 health emergency. The registration credit is transferable.
