New "Worry Free" Registration - COVID-19 Response
In response to the current uncertainty surrounding the staging of large community events because of the COVID-19 public health crisis, we are instituting a NEW “WORRY FREE” REGISTRATION policy for WFPS Run 2020 registration.
The below policy will take effect from May 4 – September 4, 2020:
- If 2020 WFPS RUN is unable to be conducted in any form related to the COVID -19 public-health crisis, all registrants will have the option for an automatic deferral to 2021 or a full refund
- The event’s current “no refunds” policy will be paused for 30 days from the announcement of the 2020 WFPS RUN cancellation and all registered participants have 30 days to email a request for a full refund
- If registrant choses a full refund it will include: your registration fee and GST. It will NOT include: any ACTIVE Network processing fees OR a donation made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation with registration.
- For participants paying with cheque. Your registration will be processed when we receive your cheque and info form. Your cheque will NOT be cashed until the event is deemed to continue. If the event is cancelled your cheque will be returned, if the event continues, we will process your cheque immediately.
- 30 days after the announcement of the 2020 WFPS RUN cancellation no further refunds will be given and all remaining registrations will be transferred into the 2021 WFPS RUN automatically
- After September 4, 2020, regardless if the 2020 WFPS RUN is conducted or cancelled, no refunds or transfers into 2021 will be offered and the existing WFPS Run no refund policy remains in place.
ALL participants will receive a technical race shirt, race bag and a finisher’s medal regardless of race distance. No one gets left out!
