Gran Fondo Florida Postponed To Fall 2020
Gran Fondo Florida, originally scheduled for March 22 in San Antonio, FL, to a to be determined date in October or November 2020
(Gettysburg, PA – March 13, 2020) - Due to the public health risks associated with COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019), Gran Fondo National Series is postponing Gran Fondo Florida, originally scheduled for March 22 in San Antonio, FL, to a to be determined date in October or November 2020. The new date for Gran Fondo Florida should be announced within the next two weeks.
From Gran Fondo National Series Director, Reuben Kline: “After careful consideration of information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), as well another event and industry organizations, my team and I reached the conclusion that postponing the event is in the best interest of our riders, staff, volunteers, and the communities we would all be traveling to and from. Running a safe event also requires participation from local law enforcement and first responders, and at this time we want to make sure those resources are available for the community, particularly populations at higher risk for infection.”
A more in-depth statement, along with deferral, transfer, and refund options available for registered athletes, has been posted to GranFondoNationalSeries.com and all registered athletes are being contacted. Entries will be automatically deferred to the rescheduled event, or athletes have the option to transfer their entry to another 2020 GFNS event or receive a refund equal to 50% of their paid entry fee.

At this time, all other 2020 GFNS events are planned to proceed as scheduled.
