Firstly, the team challenge will NEVER become a virtual event. The whole purpose of the program is to complete the challenge as a team, and cross the finish line together.
Given that the challenge occurs entirely outdoors and we can maintain social distancing by releasing one team at a time onto the course, we can avoid being a mass gathering and therefore it is easier to move ahead during periods of restrictions.
Should a situation occur where the challenge is unable to proceed on the advertised dates, we will postpone and transfer all registrations to a new date as provided by local stakeholders and authorities.
Remember with this type of event, there are other factors that may mean we have to re-schedule (like a bushfire, high speed winds, flooding), so we always have to prepare for multiple scenarios. We may also spread the challenge across three days to manage any extreme weather occurrences.
