The Upper Clutha Sports Community Trustees decided to postpone the 2021 Mitre 10 Mega Festival of Sport & Recreation due to the challenges associated with Covid 19 Alert Level restrictions. This means that both the Speaker Series due to be held on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th October and the Expo/Have-A-Go Day on Saturday 16th October, will not go ahead.
While there was a comprehensive Health & Safety Plan in place and all the speakers, organisations and businesses involved were committed to play their part in ensuring the distancing, sanitising and masking protocols were followed, it was decided that a successful community event would be seriously compromised.  

The UCSC Trust is grateful for the community and sponsor’s support of the 'Sports Speaker Series. The positivity and preparedness to 'do what it takes' to make it work has been heartening. 

The Sports Speaker organising group is revisiting options for the future delivery Speaker events and looks forward to the continuing support of the Upper Clutha community.
