2020 Event Cancellation

Thank you for your patience as we have navigated the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic these past few months, we hope you have been keeping active!

Previous Public Health Orders have had our planned event date in a position where there was hope we may be able to proceed. However, due to the Public Health Orders and guidelines currently in place, including restrictions around gatherings and movement, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

Why has this decision been made?
The Office of Sport had previously made the decision to cancel all events up until 31 May 2020. Since this time, we have closely monitored the situation, seeking advice from NSW Health and the State Emergency Operations Centre.

While some restrictions may be easing from Friday 15 May 2020, it has become clear that the safest and most appropriate action to give our participants certainty is to cancel the event and commence planning for 2021. Consideration was given to moving the date to later in the year, however our decision not to was based on venue availability and a busy running calendar in the later part of the year.

Has a date been set for 2021?
Yes. We can confirm the 2021 Western Sydney Marathon will take place at the Sydney International Regatta Centre on Sunday 27th June 2021. Registrations will re-open shortly, stay tuned.

What does this mean for my registration?
We are offering a free transfer of your entry to the 2021 event. You do not need to do anything to take advantage of this, your registration will simply carry over.

Alternatively, you are entitled to a refund. The refund will exclude surcharges and booking fees and is only applicable for paid registrations for 2020. Complimentary entries or transfers from 2019 will be transferred to 2021.

All registered participants should have now received an e-mail with further information on claiming a refund. If you have any questions about this process or do not receive the e-mail mentioned above, please contact us at westernsydneymarathon@sport.nsw.gov.au

See you in 2021!
