The organization of The 10.000 of Soplao has tried until the last minute to hold the test in this year 2021.
However, considering the current health situation and the impossibility of assuring participants that the event can take place under normal conditions, has decided to postpone the event to 2022.
They have waited until the last moment
The responsible they considered until the last moment different alternatives that ranged from the date change (they worked for weeks to carry out the test during the month of August) to the possibility of separating the event by modality in different locations, an option in which several scenarios were studied to accommodate the departure and arrival of athletes.
However, in the current health circumstances, it seems impossible to offer participants full guarantees that "The Cantabrian Hell" can develop in the safety conditions required by a massive event of these characteristics, attended by athletes from twenty different countries and all the provinces of Spain.
Postponed to 2022
Therefore, with the aim of causing them the least possible damage in the preparation and ensuring their safety at all times, the Organization of Los 10.000 del Soplao has chosen postpone the event to the year 2022.
More than 6.000 registered
The fact that, despite the pandemic that is devastating the entire planet, more than 6.000 participants had already formalized their registration makes the organizers proud of the trust they have placed, but it does not make them lose the sense of responsibility that has led to Los 10.000 del Soplao to become an international sports reference.
