TRAQ acknowledges that we are living in uncertain times and is committed to adhere to the advice and recommendations of state, national and international health authorities to assist in the community response to slow down COVID-19. TRAQ is determined to help flattening the curve of numbers of people being infected, which is essential in assisting the broader community and the health systems to cope with the effects of the virus as the numbers increase exponentially.
Key to flattening this curve is to minimise social contact and gatherings. As events are gatherings, whether big or small, TRAQ has decided to cancel its Washpool (29 March), Pinnacles (5 April) and Brisbane Trail Marathon (3 May) events for this year and hold them again next year. TRAQ is sorry for the disappointment this may cause, but sees it as the only way to effectively meet its duty of care towards its participants, volunteers and spectators to keep them safe and to slow down the spread of the virus. TRAQ hopes you understand and will send an email to the people who have registered for these events with the choice of a refund or a transfer of the registration to next year’s event.
