I saw the news the Government will not allow any large gathering / event for the next 6 months. Will the organizers cancel this event and refund us our money?

Confirm it by noww !!!

If possible confirm early ya, hotel booked and flight tickets already booked.

When can give confirmation on cancellation?? Some of us need to arrange for flight/ accomodation etc though I rather postpone and bring my reg to 2021.

Cancelled the event. Bring forward those who registered to 2021.

I think runners safety and priority is more important than anything.
