COVID-19 Policy

There’s no doubt COVID-19 is making life difficult for everyone, and making people a little anxious to lock in plans!

In the very unlikely situation an event can’t go ahead because of COVID-19, we will reschedule it to a later date. In this case, your registration will be automatically moved to the new event date. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled event date, you will be able to transfer your registration to another kunanyi Trail Series event of your choosing. Refunds will incur a $10 administration fee.

Our COVID-safe plan

All runners, spectators, volunteers and officials must follow our COVID-safe plan which has been produced, according to the Tasmanian Government’s guidelines. 

We will follow all relevant Government COVID-19 requirements for events (as they stand at the time of the event).

The COVID-safe plan is all about minimising the risk to you, your family and friends, and our volunteers and officials.

Event officials have the right to refuse entry/ask people to leave if they don’t follow these steps.

#1: Vaccinations

We recommend all runners, spectators, volunteers and officials, over the age of 12 years, to be fully vaccinated.

#2: Please do not attend if you have tested positive to COVID-19 or have COVID-19 symptoms

We ask that all runners, spectators, volunteers and officials not attend if they have tested positive or are showing any symptoms that could potentially be COVID-19.

The symptoms to watch out for are:

  • fever
  • coughing
  • sore throat
  • shortness of breath

Other symptoms include:

  • runny nose or congestion
  • headache or fatigue
  • muscle or joint pains
  • nausea or loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea or vomiting
  • temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste

If you do contract COVID-19 at the time of an event, and can provide evidence, we will offer either:

  • a refund, less a $10 administration fee
  • a transfer to a later 2022 event, or a 2023 event.

#3: Maintain a safe distance and wear masks

We ask that all runners, spectators, volunteers and officials keep socially distanced where possible (1.5 metre), especially around the start and finish lines and at registration. There will be plenty of room at our Event Hubs, which are outdoors.

The starts will be self-seeded (ie the faster runners in the early waves) and we ask that runners maintain a safe distance between them.

While not mandatory, we recommend people over the age of 12 wear a face mask while at the Event Hub (when not eating or drinking). Face masks do not need to be worn by runners as they approach the start line.

We will have extra masks available if you forget yours and want one.

#4: Sanitise

There will be hand sanitiser available at the Event Hub that can be used by runners, spectators, volunteers and officials. A handwashing station will also be available at the Event Hub.

#5: Food at the Event Hub/Aid Stations

Fruit (cut and whole), lollies and other goodies will be provided. Runners are able to select their own cut fruit.

We follow safe food handling, which will include mask wearing by those preparing/setting up food.

Reusable cups for water/energy drinks will be supplied and runners, spectators, volunteers and officials are asked to use one cup and ensure it is placed in the ‘used’ cup box once finished.
