What is a virtual event?
If you can’t make it in person, or if the whole Bridge to Bridge event can’t be held due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be held virtually. This means you will still pay to enter, but you will perform your chosen event at your choice of location and at any time between March 14th and March 27th (ensuring you adhere to any COVID-19 regulations current for your location). The run or ride must be done in one go to qualify, it is not an accumulation of kilometres throughout the two weeks.
Proof of your run or ride must then be emailed to the Cohuna Bridge to Bridge event director at email@example.com by 11.59pm Sunday April 4. Proof of your run or ride can be via a screenshot from any suitable apps or fitness tracking device that show the date and distance covered.
Virtual participants must opt in to receive a finishers medal in the mail (Australian entrants only, we cannot mail to overseas addresses). No place gettings will be awarded to virtual competitors (and in the event of the whole event being held virtually, no trophies or certificates will be awarded).
Can I get a refund of my fee?
- Entry fees are non-refundable
- If COVID-19 requires the whole event to be cancelled, all events will run as virtual events, and are non-refundable
