COVID-19 Interim Rules...

In order to host a safe edition of this year’s Tour de Victoria, we have developed special protocols to prevent the spread of Covid 19 at our event. We have identified pinch points associated with our event, where these protocols will assist in our goal. We will also rigidly follow the directions of the Provincial Health Organization at the time of the event. We believe that by following these protocols, and the direction of the PHO that the event can be run safely this year.
The event is held exclusively outdoors, including package pickup. The date of the event has changed from Aug 21st to Oct 2nd this year. We chose this later date to coordinate with the province of BC’s covid 19 vaccination schedule.

General Measures:
-Riders will be required to wear masks at start line and at aid stations
-Volunteers will be required to wear masks
-Increased hand sanitizing stations throughout the footprint of the event
-PPE items available throughout the footprint of the event
-We require the use of masks when riders aren’t riding and can’t physically distance

Transfers, deferrals, and refunds:

 

All registrations are non-refundable. There are no exceptions.

Covid Policy: In case the event gets cancelled or postponed due to covid all registrations will be transferred to the 2022 event.
