Registrations are closed


We have paused registrations for a moment to give us time to see the road forward. Although our event will not come anywhere near the government limit of 500 people in one place, we are thinking of our higher moral obligation to both our runners and the small local community which host this running festival. Whilst its great to bring our city based runners to the small country community, with the COVID-19 situation, we fear that us city based people have a greater chance of being exposed, and then by travelling to Maidenwell we might inadvertantly bring the virus to a pristine community, at the moment this is weighing heavily on our minds, and we will make a decision within 48 hours after seeking more advice.

Folks,

 
It's with sadness and regret that I have to announce that we have taken the decision to cancel Maidenwell 2020.
 
We did this in consultation with both the Local Community and our long term runners.
 
We did not fear reaching the 500 people limit.
 
We did not fear that the existing 500 people limit would be lowered.
 
We feared that our city based runners might inadvertently bring COVID-19 into a small relatively isolated community.
 
Maybe if we had a 1 day event, we may not have cancelled, however this is a 3 day event, where 80% of the competitors are city based people who stay 3 to 4 days, and use the Cafe, Hotel and Community Hall and intermingle with everybody, and in the current situation, the risk was too high for us to carry.
 
Thank-you for your understanding, and for Easter 2021, just don’t bring one friend along, bring 5, as Maidenwell, like the rest of country Australia will need as many visitors as possible when we come out of the other side of this emergency.
 
And for 2021, we will race on Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday, 2nd and 3rd April,
 
Thank-you for your understanding,
 
Regards,
