COVID-19 Safety Plan

A COVID-19 Safety Plan for the 49th City to Casino Fun Run & Walk (the Event) has been submitted for the approval of the Director of Public Health.

The list of restrictions and safety measures are regularly being updated and will impact on the Event.  Full requirements will be published on this page and advised to participants when approval has been received.  In the meantime, based on the 2021 Event, the following are likely to be required:

  • If you are unwell on the day of the Event, especially if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home. If unsure, please undertake a Rapid Antigen Test before leaving home. If you become unwell during the Event, withdraw, isolate and await the arrival of the ambulance which will be following each Event.
  • Social distancing is to be practised as far as possible. Most of the assembly areas are spacious, so spread out. Actual start lines will not formally open until approximately 5 minutes before race start to avoid close congregation.
  • While facemasks are no longer mandated, they are recommended for staff, volunteers and any spectators, for your safety. Please provide your own masks.   
  • PLEASE NOTE that under the terms of the bus company Covid Safety Plan and State Government directives, facemasks are to be worn by all passengers taking the Event supplied bus transport to, or return to, race starts.  A limited supply of facemasks will be available but, wherever possible, please provide your own.
  • Please adopt the hygienic practices that we have all become accustomed to – cough or sneeze into your arm, maintain 1.5m separation, avoid physical contact, no spitting or nasal discharge at any stage. Do not share drinks.
  • Please observe the queuing requirements and the directions of marshals for race number pick up, for toilets and Event-related bus transport.
  • Sanitiser will be available at number pick up, toilet areas and other areas at race starts.
  • Those who are able to are encouraged to pick up their race number from The Running Edge (73 Murray Street, Hobart) in the days leading up to the Event (keep an eye on this website and social media to find to when numbers are ready for collection).
  • At the finish, please keep moving through the finish chute. Medals will be self-collect. Bottled water and fruit will be available at the end of the chute.
  • You will be requested to leave the Wrest Point Casino finish site as soon as it is practical for you to do so. There will be no formal presentation ceremony again this year. Placegetter awards will take place in a closed ceremony. Other awards will be mailed out.
  • Non-essential spectators should not attend.

A Covid-19 Site Controller has been appointed for each race start to oversee the implementation of the Safety Plan on Event Day. That person and other event volunteers will be wearing hi-vis vests. Please follow their directions.

If our Event is cancelled by a directive of the State Government, we will happily defer your registration to next year.  Alternatively, we can provide you with a refund less a 10% administration fee.

If you are unable to attend our Event for any reason, we are happy to transfer your entry to another person as long as we are advised by 2pm, the day before the Event takes place, which is Sunday 15 May 2022.
