Cancellation of 2020 MegaFest Naracoorte World Heritage Trail Run
Due to the latest COVID-19 updates and restrictions from the State Government, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 MegaFest Naracoorte World Heritage Trail Run scheduled to be held at the Naracoorte Caves this Sunday (22 November).
The decision has been made based on:
- State Government directions that recreational events such as this shouldn’t proceed;
- State Government general advice that all unnecessary travel should not occur;
- Significant numbers of Trail Run event registrations coming from Adelaide. From a community perspective, it has been deemed logical to not increase the risk to our community in having people travel from COVID hotspots to our community and region for such an event.
Consideration was given to deferring this event, but that became problematic for the Trail Run being held in December.
The community’s safety is of paramount importance and remains our priority.
