At XTERRA Wellington every time we set out, we aim to run spectacular events with your experience and safety at the heart of everything we do.
In consultation with our partners at Meridian Energy we have come to the hard decision that due to the ongoing risk of Covid-19 running an event at West Wind on Sunday 22nd March is not possible. We are working with Meridian on a revised date and will be in touch soon.
We worked around the clock over this past weeks to incorporate all local and international government guidance into the event and assessed a number of options moving forward. These included reduced numbers, splitting races, wave starts, however, as users of a very unique and special piece of land, that is vital in a wider New Zealand context our final option was postponement. We waited until we had all the information possible before making this decision and did not take it lightly. We know you want to be out there, because we do too. However we will see you on the start line again soon.
We believe being in the outdoors with others is such an essential part of being physically and mentally healthy which in a time like this is of upmost importance. In fact, it inspires us to do what we do.
Note, at this stage this does not affect the other events in our series, and we look forward to seeing you all at McKerrows Revenge. Information on how we are keeping you and our community safe will be conveyed asap. Covid-19 is a moving beast and we will keep you informed as we know more. Follow us on FB to get up to date information on all our events.
Thanks to all of our suppliers, sponsors, marshals, friends, family, supporters and you, for your understanding, support and acceptance in a very unique time.
Be safe, go for a run, support each other and we will see you all very soon.
