Andrew gives a behind the scenes look at the operational complexities of having to postpone 97 races into an already packed Q3/Q4 calendar. He talks about the importance of “over communication” to make it happen, especially with staff and a key focus on supporting younger staff during such trying times.
He also highlights the value that our industry plays in giving people a goal and focus with so many athletes saying things like “I just want an anchor to focus on” which has also been reflected in the huge participation levels in the newly launched VR Club.
Andrew shares his belief that the endurance industry mindset is ideally positioned to “just keep going” through these challenging times “it’s like being in the last half of the marathon – keep putting one foot in front of another ..”
