WESTERN SYDNEY MARATHON UPDATE
Friday 2 July, 2021
We have begun the process of refunding the race entry fee to participants. Please note that this is a manual process and as such will take a little time as we work through everyone. For most of you, we expect to have you processed in the next 7-14 days.
There will be some cases where additional information and time will be required to complete the process. Instances where credit cards have expired or been cancelled or if a Paypal payment was done over 12 months ago, or if a registration has been carried over from previous year. We will contact you directly with options by 23 July.
We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. We are doing this to ensure that when we are able to run next, we have accurate data as things can change a lot in a short time, and as we are now up to the second time we have not been able to run on the planned date with many registrants having signed up back in 2019.
While right now we do not have an update on when we can hold the event, we continue to work towards obtaining a new date for the Western Sydney Marathon and will communicate updates as they come to hand.
Please visit the FAQ page for refund questions and if it is not answered there, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
WESTERN SYDNEY MARATHON POSTPONEMENT
Thursday 24 June, 2021
Following the increase in restrictions across Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour introduced from 4pm, Wednesday 23 June, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Western Sydney Marathon, which was scheduled to take place this Sunday.
Ensuring the health and well-being of our athletes, volunteers, partners, community, and staff is our primary concern. We believe this is the most appropriate decision as we all work to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 community transmission.
We will be working with our event partners and suppliers to identify a new date to host the Western Sydney Marathon. We hope to announce this soon.
We want to thank you for your understanding as we work through this process.This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we hope to see you return to the Western Sydney Marathon soon.
