Sydney Trail Series - COVID Safe

Information current as at 19th February 2021

The following Covid Safe procedures will be in place for the Sydney Trail Series race at Manly Dam on Sunday 21st February 2021.

We ask that you please do not attend the event, if you have cold or flu like symptoms, or have had close contact with a person with confirmed COVID-19 while infectious, or are required to be self isolating as per NSW Health guidelines. 

Bib Collection:

  • Bib collection will be open as per the race timetable.

  • Please practice social distancing in bib collection queues.

  • Please vacate the admin area once your bib has been collected.

Start times:

  • We will be proceeding with the usual start times as per the Race Timetable

  • Please utilise the whole of the hub area to spread out and listen to the pre race safety briefings. 

  • Self seeding waves will be implemented at the start line. There is no need to crowd at the start line, your start time is taken from when you cross the timing mat.

Water, Nutrition and Aid Stations:

  • Water and Tailwind will be available at aid stations.

  • Please hold your water bottle or camelback out for our staff to fill up for you, all water and tailwind refills will be contact free.

  • All staff will be wearing gloves.

  • Please note, no food will be available at aid stations. Runners will need to bring their own nutrition if required.

  • Limited whole fruits will be available at the finish line. There won't be any post race BBQ. 

Event Hub pre and post event:

  • On the day registrations will be available, but we strongly encourage contactless payment methods.

  • We respectfully ask spectators to not attend the event where possible.

  • There will not be any sponsor stands or coffee available.

No Prize Ceremony

  • A council Covid Safe requirement is that we encourage runners to head off from the event soon after finishing, to avoid large crowds gathering at the finish area.
  • You should feel free to stay around for a while to recover and enjoy our complimentary fruit and drinks, and wait for any of your friends to finish, but unfortunately due to this requirement we're unable to hold a prize ceremony this month.
  • All winners, including overall winners and placegetters and age category winners will be contacted via email or phone and will be posted out their prize via one of our great sponsors.
  • Overall distance winners and times will be published in our post event wrap up email, and all results are published online live as you cross the finish line.
  • We are hoping restrictions will continue to ease and enable us to hold our prize ceremony at the event hub at the final 2 series events.

Thanks for your patience and understanding of Sydney Trail Series looking a little different. We’re thankful for your continued support of our event and we are looking forward to seeing you on the trails!
