Please fill out the short Expression of Interest (EOI) below if you’d like to receive more information about the event in due course. There is zero commitment at this stage, we just want to know roughly how many people might like to join us if it’s possible.
Last year we launched the AJ Bell Courmayeur Classic, a fundraising event that challenges teams of four to complete a series of snowsports activities over 2 action packed days. Activities include ski orienteering, laser biathlon, parallel slalom racing, a team distance challenge and a snow-shoe relay. The event was a huge success with 12 teams taking part and over £25,000 raised! Read all about it here.
We were all looking forward to growing the event in 2021 and getting more teams of supporters out to Courmayeur to take part in our pentathlon once again! Covid-19 of course changed everything, and with so much uncertainty in the world over recent months, especially around travel and hospitality, we haven’t been able to launch the 2021 event yet.
It is still a challenge to know what will be possible for the ski season ahead, but we are working closely with our partners at Momentum Ski and the City Ski Championships to plan for the March 2021 event, in the hope that it can run.
If the situation allows us to get teams safely out to Courmayeur, we are confident that we can deliver a special event for teams to enjoy. There may be changes of course (we are all be used to those by now!) but if we can, we want to run the event to maintain the positive momentum from the last Courmayeur Classic. Plus, it will be so wonderful to see our supporters in person in the Alps!
It also goes without saying, that from a fundraising perspective, we are also really hoping we can go ahead – the challenges we are facing this year as a charity mean the event is more important than ever in helping us continue our work with young people.
Right now, we’re not asking people to sign up, but we would love to know if it can go ahead, would you have a team that might like to join us?
There is no obligation at this point to do anything other than to tell us that you might be interested. The hotels have been reserved without deposits being needed and prices are the same as last year. Flights wise we will wait and see what is available in the new year, but what we need to know is IF things fell into place, would you potentially like to join us at the Courmayeur Classic 2021?
If so, please fill in the EOI form below and it will help give us an idea of how our supporters are feeling about the event! There is a notes section on the form where you can add your thoughts too, we would love to hear them.
Thank you to AJ Bell, Momentum Ski and all our Courmayeur Classic partners for your patience and support. Fingers crossed we can make it happen!
