The landscape of the running and event industry has changed. As of today, we don’t know the extent to which races will continue to be impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting national and WHO guidelines and policies.
UNITY Run will continue to plan and work towards putting on our scheduled events. In instances where we are permitted to hold events, we will likely be implementing policies and logistical changes that may change the face of the event in ways not clearly outlined at the time you registered for the race. The changes could affect fundamental things such as the route, start time, aid stations, etc..
Furthermore, these events are also subject to increased risk of cancellation for reasons out of our control. In the event of a cancellation, we will do our best to provide runners with several other options that likely include deferment and future races.
Finally, we would expect race registrants who are showing COVID-19 symptoms, are around those known to be infected, are members of more vulnerable populations or who live with high-risk people, to not attend our events until such time it is deemed safe to do so by governmental agencies.
