Media Release 05-02-2021


The Busselton Runners Club committee met this Friday 5th Feb to discuss the very very complex problem of the Busselton Half Marathon & Fun Run brought about by the Covid19 restrictions currently imposed in the metro area.


At this point in time we have decided that the event will be postponed to late April assuming that we are not subject to any further Covid19 related problems, and all approvals can be met.

We have tried to take into consideration the large number of entrants that live in the Perth / Peel area as well as allowing for the local South West runners.


It is going to be impossible to please everyone so we ask that you keep this in mind: we are a not for profit organisation that is run by a committee of volunteers that have worked exceptionally hard to set up the original event and are now faced with the task of coordinating all of the various contractors to shift to an alternative date.

We have taken into consideration that any date prior to the end of April is subject to previously booked accommodation, with this date giving the most opportunity for accommodation rescheduling.


We also have to juggle the availability of various contractors who may not be able to supply us prior to this date.


We very much want to have another exceptional event that only a good crowd of participants can create and we ask for your cooperation and understanding in this matter. As you will all be aware, to stage an event of this nature cost the club tens of thousands of dollars and we would not want to jeopardise future events by carrying a huge loss forward.


We will continue to support our 2021 beneficiary Cape Care. We thank you for your continuing support for this event.


Regards,

Denis Price
