WILL GGUT BE HELD IN 2020 BECAUSE OF COVID-19?
As regards GGUT 2020, we are convinced that currently nobody can reliably assess the development and duration of the
restrictions for the summer. However, the planning for the GGUT 2020 continues with full energy and commitment as every year. The beginning of June is probably the time when we can provide a more
precise assessment about the race in 2020 and prepare a to take a final decision. In between, however, we will surely get in touch with updates about that when we can say more. More on our
Facebook fanpage, but also with a newsletter when we can provide a more
reliable information. (March 19, 2020)
