COVID-19 will continue to influence our world through 2021. As a consequence there will need to significant changes to the GOW weekend. We will constantly monitor the state of affairs and adjust accordingly but we all know only too well that we can't predict what will happen and there is never any certainty. With that in mind we are pressing ahead with plans for GOW2021 on 23 October but there may need to be changes to ensure the event meets COVIDSafe requirements. Over 20 runners have rolled their entry over from the cancelled GOW2020. Entries for GOW2021 will reopen once permit planning is established. An announcement will be made closer to this date.
