Staying COVID Safe
The RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run is delivered under a COVID Safe plan based on current Queensland Health guidelines. The plan is in place to provide a safe and fun event for everyone.
To participate in this event you are asked to meet all the applicable Commonwealth and/or State health directions.
What we are doing
We are managing this event in accordance with the current Queensland Health guidelines providing a safe and fun event for everyone.
To deliver a COVID safe event we will:
- Utilise full road closures so you can walk or run with more space around you
- Separate the start and finish venues to reduce crowding
- Expand start times to give everyone more assembly space
- Collect every participants details as part of registration to allow for contact tracing, if required
- Provide a race timing device as part of their entry
Additionally, there will be:
- Increased cleaning, handwashing facilities and sanitiser stations
- COVID safe activities and entertainment
- Medics located at the Start Line, Finisher’s Village and on course
What happens if the event is cancelled or I cannot attend due to COVID-19?
COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted across Queensland but there is the potential for tougher restrictions to return. You can register with peace of mind knowing we will offer a number of options if COVID-19 impacts your participation, including:
- Transfer your registration to our RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run virtual event, where you can complete the event Your Way on Sunday, 6 March.
- Transfer your registration fee to a tax-deductable donation and support women with breast cancer.
- Refund of your registration fee minus a $10 administration fee (after all you will still receive your pink t-shirt!).
If there is any significant change that affects all participants, our team will contact you via email or SMS.
