YOU and YOUR safety are very important to us and so are the RULES

 

We're only too aware of the impact of COVID 19 on the mental health of Aussies and while we are thrilled to be able to get outside in the fresh air and walk and talk with you, keeping our community safe is of the utmost importance to us too.

Before the WALK

  • As required we are still working to an approved COVID Safe Plan  by the relevant federal, state and local health authorities.

  • Registration will require you to approve an insurance waiver.  More information is available below.

  • Registration details will require you to share relevant contact information for every individual so we are able to get in touch with you if need be

  • We may need to assign you to a grouped arrival/registration time to manage and limit the number of people registering at any one time. You will be notified of this via email in your safety briefing update.

  • We are keeping our website updated with all information and we will send a safety briefing update to you via email in the week prior to the event.

On the day at REGISTRATION​

  • We  encourage you to register as efficiently as you can and disperse to a safe socially distanced area before you start 

While you are WALKING 

  • As it's not a race we encourage you to spread out across the WALK path and maintain social distancing requirements at all times.

  • Please bring your own water bottle to ensure good hydration and safe use

  • Every location will feature signage and instruction per their specific event details on-site for you to follow

Just in case we ASK 

  • If you feel unwell, have a cough, cold or fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath. We will miss you but please stay home

  • If during the WALK you feel unwell and need medical assistance please locate a Marshal, event official, or First Aid officer.

  • Maintaining the required social/physical distance is your responsibility, please do it

  • Please follow the signage and instructions

  • Keep on eye out on the website, social media and email for event updates 

In the EVENT we did get COVID cancelled.

Just in case the current walk format is cancelled because of COVID we'll still be going ahead just differently. We'd love you to get out on the day of the event and walk and talk with us. We will shift it online and do it virtually! We encourage you to share it on socials while adhering to any necessary restrictions, of course.  Given we are raising vital funds for mental health research and it's honestly never been more important, your ticket registration donation will make a huge difference to what Australian Rotary Health research funding can achieve. Your shiny new t-shirt will still be waiting for you to collect and we'll keep you up to date of a safe place and time for that to happen via email in the event we can't go ahead on the day.
