RiverRun2019 33


SUN 1 Nov 2020
Hi Racers
New Date – SUNDAY 1st Nov 2020
As you may have been expecting  due to the COVID19 virus crisis, we have selected a new date to stage this event. This is, of course, subject to gathering restrictions allowing this activity. See below for entry option details. 
With the nature of this health crisis such that we are expecting a lengthy disruption to all our daily lives, we have allowed almost 30 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.
Fortunately with the renovation of their new office, River have heavily invested in technology. This provides them with the ability to allow some staff to work from home if needed, properties to be advertised and viewed through digital portals and social media platforms and they even have online auctions! The property market itself has slowed a little, with most people wanting to put their properties on the market after this crisis subsides. But for River, it’s business as usual and they are always available to their community wherever needed.
All start times and courses remain the same, however with expected lower numbers in the Half Marathon, the course footprint will be reduced to 5 laps of the 4km loop (plus a small out and back section to complete the 21.1km).
Current entries and options:
  1. All current entries will automatically be transferred to the new date (Sunday 1 Nov).
  2. If you are not able to participate on the new date you have until Sunday 7 Aug 2020 to decide if you will:
    1. Transfer the entry to another person by going to the event portal. See instructions below. There is no charge to transfer until 7 Aug 2020, OR
    2. Inform us via email that you wish to transfer to the 2021 River Run event date, planned as Sun 6 June 2021, OR
    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.
