Well – here we are again! The 2022 Riverhead ReLaps Backyard Ultra is planned for 2 April 2022 and we thank you for entering. However, we are, as you know, at the mercy of Omicron. BUT….good news!
We to let you know our thinking at this stage. We are continuing to plan that the event is happening in Traffic Light level/zone/alert Red, but with probably only the Ultra event allowed and with limited support. This would keep us under 100 people and allow at least the ultra to happen. Not ideal, because the relay is so much fun and really adds to the weekend, but this looks like our plan.
At this stage we are looking to not allow any personal support crew to keep the numbers down and instead have a “Gang of Supporters” who communally offer some support to all the runners.
We have sold out of our 77 person limit and are now taking peoples names for a waitlist. So if you are no longer able to attend due to injury or whatever, please let us know so we can withdraw you and refund your entry as per the refund policy, which you agreed to when entering.
While we’re taking about policy – please make sure you have a read of our COVID policy (on the website). Most importantly, in order to have any event at all, we require everyone to be fully vaccinated and you’ll be asked to provide evidence of this (Vaccine Pass) at the event.
For those that have entered the relay or solo then please hold fire in case anything changes and we can proceed with those events. At this stage we haven’t been promoting the event (for obvious reasons), so only have 2 solo runners and 3 relay teams entered. We’ll do refunds for you later, as if they happened at this point in time using the COVID refund policy (80% refund or credit for next year).
We can’t wait to to see you there! Lot of fingers crossed…..Get ready to “Keep on Lapsin!”
That’s all for now. We’ll keep you updated with info as we invent it, in this fast changing environment
