**SBR 2021 is a GO**
As of 1.12.2020 SBR2021 is full steam ahead for Saturday 13th March, 2021.
We continue to monitor state health department and DHHS information and will be guided by any state government restrictions. At present, we are proceeding with event preparations with a COVID-Safe plan in place. We have also consulted with medical officers at a state level for reassurance. As a small community event in a large outdoor area, maintaining social distancing is achievable.
The safety of every individual at our event comes down to each and every one of us.
1. STAY AWAY if you are ill, even if you only have mild symptoms.
2. Maintain good hand hygiene. We do not have enough hand sanitiser for 500 people, so please bring your own if you have any.
3. At this time, face masks will be required in the starting chute, when approaching an aid station, and immediately upon finishing until such time that you have moved away from the finishing chute after receiving your medal. If queuing for food or drink, or entering any indoor areas, you must wear a face mask.
4. Maintain social distancing when possible.
5. Avoid touching your face and handling your mask unnecessarily.
**COVID CANCELLATION POLICY**
If SBR2021 must be cancelled according to state government regulations and / or restrictions, entries will be automatically transferred to SBR2022 (Date: 12.03.2022). Alternatively, entrants may request a refund via emailing email@example.com (please include full name, DOB, and mobile number). Refunds will be processed less a $10 fee which covers registration payment processing fees and event non-refundable overheads. In the event that cancellation occurs, please allow up to 14 days for refund processing.
REMINDER ** This is a cup free event **
YOU MUST BYO CUP
VOLUNTEERS (wearing gloves) will be instructed to hand you any aid station supplies you may wish to take, to avoid runners putting sweaty hands into lolly bowls. This MAY create a slight delay at aid stations. DO NOT BE RUDE TO THE VOLUNTEERS. No runners will be allowed to handle the water taps - this will be done by volunteers only.
Consider bringing your own lollies, or fuel in a zip lock bag to avoid using aid station food.
PODIUM places will be awarded on Race Bib chip time, NOT 1st, 2nd and 3rd across the line. We may ask all runners to self seed (faster to slower) at the start line and maintain a reasonable distance from each other, or we may institute start line 'waves' to maintain social distancing regulations. Information will be released via the Entrants Information Guide - 2 weeks prior to the event.
We have a medical team in attendance who will be taking a travel history on any runners who present for medical assistance. Be honest, and do not risk other people with misleading information. As we approach the event date, information will be posted on the Sharpy's Beer Run Instagram and Facebook pages, and sent out via email. Please be sure to check your junk / trash email folders.
Any runner who presents for medical assistance and is symptomatic with criteria or has a positive travel or contact history will be banned from future events.
Thank you all for your assistance.
