Weipa Running Festival - COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE
Weipa Running Festival is monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and its potential to impact our event and attendees on 26th July 2020. Our mission statement promotes that the health and wellbeing of our community is our priority.
Our greatest priority remains the health and safety of our volunteers, and all our event participants. This is why we have made the heartbreaking decision to make our 2020 Running Festival a Virtual Event.
This is in aid of ensuring the mental and physical health of our whole community.
Whilst we are heartbroken, we are incredibly optimistic that this option can continue to see people make healthy choices and achieve their goals in these challenging times.
There is no doubt that considerable caution is needed and we will continue to monitor the situation, liaise with the relevant authorities and keep our competitors updated with our steps when things change.
In the meantime we encourage people to continue to exercise, remain aware of the situation and to practice good hand and health hygiene at all times. And if you have any symptoms then get tested and self isolate until cleared.
Further changes and information will be released over the coming weeks regarding your registration and details for the Virtual Weipa Running Festival. If you have any concerns prior to this please contact us.
See you out running (from a distance).
