Hi Racers
New Date – SUNDAY 2nd AUGUST 2020
As announced on Monday, due to the COVID19 virus crisis, we have selected a new date to stage this event.
 
With the nature of this health crisis such that we are expecting a lengthy disruption to all our daily lives, we have allowed almost 20 weeks for the crisis to normalise. We eagerly hope this is enough time for the event to go ahead.
 
Like many other small/family run businesses in our community, H Events hopes that all our valued athletes can be understanding and flexible, given the unanticipated nature of what we are all facing in the world right now!
 
We want to thank our sponsors, local approval stakeholders, staff, suppliers and volunteer groups for their flexibility and loyalty.
 
ENTRIES HAVE NOW RE-OPENED FOR THE NEW DATE.
 
All start times and courses remain the same, with the exception of the Marathon, which will now start at 6.20am, due to the later sunrise.
 
Current entries and options:
  1. All current entries will automatically be transferred to the new date (Sunday 2 August).
  2. If you are not able to participate on the new date you have until Sunday 3 May 2020 to decide if you will:

    3. Inform us via email that your wish to transfer the value of the entry to another H Events staged/owned event on our 2020/2021 calendar. You need not select that event now, as a credit note will be created for you to use at a later date.

Bush Fire and Smoke Haze risk

para 2

The Event organisers are aware of the recent bush fires and subsequent effect on air quality. Our condolences go out to those who have been affected. We are, of course, conscious of making sure that athletes are not put in any unreasonable risk due to the air quality, however it is impossible to predict what the air quality will be like this far out from the event date. This will be affected by further fires and wind direction. We will continue to assess the conditions make an assessment of the risk 7 days out from the event. We will take advice from weather and medical experts. If you have any concerns please contact us on paul@hevents.com.au 

Regards

Paul Humphreys
