The O.C of FROZEN PEAKS, taking into account the emergency health conditions, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, respecting the suggestions and recommendations of the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, decided for 2021 the following:
1. Decongestion of the festival races of the Organization and their postponement to different dates, in order to avoid overcrowding
The O.C FROZEN PEAKS, taking into account the situation created at the global and national level regarding the postponement of the races due to the consequences of Covid-19, decided to postpone all of the races to the dates 28 - 31 May 2020.
