*Covid-19 Latest Event Update:
Friday 22nd October 2021
*Aoraki Mount Cook Marathon – postponed to Saturday 12th February 2022
I hope you are keeping well and staying active.
At todays COVID-19 press conference the New Zealand Government announced the next stage of the COVID-19 response plan by developing a new Traffic Light system to replace the current Alert Level way of life as we know it.
From our understanding having read the latest Ministry of Health Guidelines and listened to the the latest updates, Auckland will remain in Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country in Alert Level 2 for the time being. Once 90% of the population of those whom reside in each of the regional DHB’s have been fully vaccinated, each region will enter in to the new Traffic Light system.
With the above information at hand, adhering to government regulations, guidelines and the health, safety and wellbeing of participants and all involved with the event, it deeply saddens us to inform you that this years Aoraki Mount Cook Marathon event on Saturday 6th November 2021 has been postponed to Saturday 12th February 2022.
We know this isn’t the news you wanted to hear and appreciate it is terribly frustrating however the current situation is out of our control.
All participants registered to date will have their race entries automatically transferred to Saturday 12th February 2022. If you cannot attend the re-scheduled event your race entry will be transferred to next years annual event on Saturday 1st October 2022 or an alternative Active QT event in 2022.
On a more positive note, you now have more time for training and will be even better prepared for an adventure amongst the mountains during the summer of 2022.
In the mean time, stay active and we will keep you posted with further updates.
Adrian & the Active QT Team
