June Event Update

Over the past few months, it’s felt a bit like we are running a marathon with no finish line in sight. The situation in New Zealand is now looking more and more positive each day however, we wanted to update you on how we are progressing towards New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty Hawke's Bay Marathon on our new date of 19 September 2020.

We want to reassure you that our team, with the support of our stakeholders, is fully focused on delivering the event on Saturday 19 September 2020.

Following guidance from government health agencies, our team is working hard on creating a set of best-practice operating guidelines to ensure your event experience is a safe and enjoyable one. More information will be shared over the coming months about what you can expect to see and experience at the event.

In the meantime, to help give you some peace of mind, we wanted to answer your most common questions upfront:

➡️ What if New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty Hawke's Bay Marathon does not take place on 19 September 2020, for reasons relating to the Covid-19 Pandemic?
Where possible, the event will be rescheduled, and if this happens all registered athletes will have their race registration automatically moved to the new date. We will provide as much notice as we can.

➡️ What if I can’t make a rescheduled date, I am unable to get to either the original event or a rescheduled event due to border restrictions, or if the event does not happen at all?
Athletes will be offered an Event Credit to the value of your entry (including additional purchases). This Event Credit can be used on any of the IRONMAN Group’s portfolio of events in New Zealand.

While we feel confident about delivering the event this September, we hope by providing this information up front it will give you the confidence to enter.
