We know that many people are wondering what will be happening to specific races and the 2020 season because of COVID-19. For MultiSport Canada it is simply too soon to know what will happen to individual races or the season however, we felt we should do our best to give you as much information as we can.
What We Know Today
At this point in time we have no plans to cancel any events in 2020. Our first races of the season, Gravenhurst and Welland, are thirteen and fifteen weeks away respectively, with Bracebridge over four months away. While we have no plans to cancel, we are researching options to move some races to later in the season. To that end we have been and continue to be in touch with each of the municipalities where we have our races to determine if they have made any decisions around mass gatherings and the options for dates later in the summer.
If and when any race is rescheduled, postponed or cancelled we will immediately contact each registered athlete by email, post to our website www.multisportcanada.com and post to our social media (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter). Please do not attempt to contact our offices by phone as our staff are currently working from home.
