Bethany Sportive 2017
03 Jun 17
It is with regret that we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Bethany Sportive. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and after 9 years of planning and implementation we have come to the conclusion that we can no longer run this event due to the barriers we face in increased costs, competition and resources.
We are sure that you are all aware that the Bethany Sportive was set up as a fundraising initiative to support Bethany Christian Trust. Over the last 34 years Bethany has been working with people who are homeless in our communities. This event has played a pivotal role and has raised £80,000 over the years to support our vital work. We are so grateful for the support of over 2000 cyclists who have helped change so many lives through this event.
We would like to make you aware that if you have already purchased a place for this year’s Sportive, you will be entitled to a full refund. However, we would ask you to consider making your entry a donation towards our work. The cost of your entry will provide a homeless person with a night in our Emergency Winter Care Shelter, a hot meal and the right support and advice they need to help them move on. In many cases this has proven to be lifesaving.
If you would like to request a refund, please email .
With kind regards,
The Bethany Sportive team.
