THE UNBREAKABLE CODE

NEW SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR RACES

In the past months, your unbreakable spirit and resolve to stay on the road to racing has inspired us to work harder than ever before. We’re excited to announce that your dedication will not be in vain.


Adhering to government guidelines and with advice from medical experts, we’ve developed a set of guidelines that allow us to safely reopen live races. After months of testing, it’s here.


The Unbreakable Code will lead us back to a world where we can all RACE SAFE TOGETHER.

Cleaning and Sanitisation

Reduced customer touchpoints to minimise physical interaction between racers, and racers and event staff.

Additional cleaning and sanitisation of customer touch-points throughout the festival area, including check-in areas, toilets, medal and shirt collection, results, payment collection points, and at aid stations and obstacles.

Hand sanitiser will be available for use throughout events, including around high traffic areas, after every obstacle, in and around portable toilets. These will be refreshed by staff throughout the day.

The use of sealed, bottled water at aid stations instead of cups and taps.

Increased safety and hygiene procedures for staff and volunteers including regular hand sanitization.

Personal Protective Equipment

All event staff and volunteers will wear face coverings at all times. In addition to social distancing measures, racers are requested to wear a face covering in the festival area while not on course. Reusable face masks and gloves will also be available for purchase on site.

Transparent plastic shields will be installed at key interaction points, such as racer check-in, to create separation between both racers and staff.

Social Distancing

To manage the volume of racers onsite, each racer will be given a specific arrival and departure time for entry and exit from the event to ensure total participant numbers at any one time are kept under strict control.

Customer throughput will be monitored to ensure the number of people within the event space is kept to acceptable levels at all times.

Heat sizes will be reduced, 50~60 racers per 5-minute interval of starting time to reduce the concentration around the obstacles.

Dedicated lanes, along with designated waiting spots, will be provided at areas where racers tend to congregate, such as at check-in and at obstacles. Where lines are formed, distancing markers will be used to ensure safe distancing.

Event Adjustments

  2. Cold wash will be unavailable.
  3. “No spectators” will be permitted, unless a participating minor is being accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  4. No awards ceremony will be held after the race to prevent gathering and ensure social distancing measures are adhered to.
