The Ras Dewi Sant will be improvising in order to go ahead on Saturday, April 25.

Inevitably, the annual 10k, half marathon, and full marathon races around the coast of St Davids have been postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak and last week Fintan Godkin, of MUUK-adventures sent the following statement to entrants: "The event falls within the 12 weeks timescale for the self-isolation period recommended for the most vulnerable.

"I think it’s fair to say that many people have contact with this group somewhere during their normal day to day lives, whether it be within the family or professional capacity.

"As a result, we do not want to be responsible for compromising anyone or making anyone feel they can’t attend to protect another."

All competitors have been offered the option to defer until 2021.

However, the company have also provided the option of taking part in a virtual race, which means people can still compete with one another on that exact date but via Strava.

Those who enter the virtual race will be asked to run your race at a location near to where they live and then record the route, distance and time on Strava and send it in.

Results will then be posted online and all those who complete their entered distance will be sent a t-shirt and medal in the post.

"To try and make it fair we will ask that the course people run has the same elevation as the Ras Dewi Sant version and that as much as possible it is on trail - although we appreciate that might not be available for all," said Godkin.

"We will publish the photos sent in and the results.

"Those who live close to St Davids could run the actual route but obviously we ask people not to pick the same start time as others."

Godkin added that given the unprecedented times ahead, the company have provisional plans for more virtual runs, cycles and swims.
