In what has been a continually evolving and challenging time globally, we recognise that the possibility of a cancellation or postponement is disappointing but we must follow guidelines and advice to play our part in the evolving growth of Covid-19.

For clarity, at this present time we are committed to follow advice to protect our valued customers. For events effected the following applies:

  • Postponement:  Registered athletes for events that are postponed due to COVID-19 are automatically transferred to the rescheduled date. For those that the new date does not work, we will allow deferrals into the same event the next year.
  • Cancellation: In the very unlikely scenario that we cancel an event due to COVID-19 you will be automatically deferred to the same race in 2021.

(NOTE: refunds are only allowed during the 14 day cool off period after signing up, after this time you are not eligible for a refund)
