The Vancouver ABFM has been actively monitoring governmental and WHO advice regarding the development of Coronavirus COVID-19 over the past weeks. With a dramatic shift in the global response, it is clear that COVID-19 will have a profound impact beyond our health and day-to-day activity. As a result, and in discussion with all concerned, the decision has been made to postpone this year’s event from Saturday, May 16, 2020, to later this summer, subject to week-to-week developments of the pandemic and direction from regulating officials.
The ABFM Whistler Run, originally scheduled for May 17, 2020, is postponed to later this summer and is also subject to week-to-week developments of the pandemic and regulating officials.
The nature of the Vancouver ABFM & Whistler Run events, together attracting large crowds of enthusiasts of all ages from across British Columbia, Alberta and the U.S., means that the postponement of these popular annual events is the most appropriate decision to take at this time. The safety of our event attendees, exhibitors and participants is of paramount importance and we will continue to closely monitor this unprecedented situation. We will continue to keep you regularly informed on both these events.
Vancouver ABFM & Whistler Run Policy The Vancouver ABFM & Whistler Run organizers wish to reassure all paid entrants and sponsors to both events (purchased for the original May 16 & 17, 2020 event dates) that their current confirmation of entry will be applicable for the rescheduled 2020 date(s).
For those already registered: If you are unable to attend in 2020, you may apply your payment towards the 2021 event(s). If you choose this option, one of our anniversary dash plaques from 2020 will be forwarded, and if you have ordered a T-Shirt/Golf Shirt or extra dash plaque(s) those items will also be mailed.
Should you be unable to attend in 2020 and would like a refund, please email email@example.com and allow two weeks for processing.
Patrick & Joan Stewart, organizers of the Vancouver ABFM and ABFM Whistler Run, thank you for your continued support of these events and ask that at this challenging time, care and support for one another remains at the forefront of all our minds—together, we will overcome and enjoy better times down the road.
