Snowies MultiSport Festival Update | Jan 2, 2020
With the tragedy that is occuring in our southern states, and with many of our In2Adventure family being effected by this, we wanted to take this opportunity to send all our love to those impacted by the devastating fires that have taken so much from so many.
Our thoughts especially go out to our very special friends in the Snowy Mountains Region especially all the team at Lake Crackenback Resort and Spa and Thredbo Resort. As a precaution, an evacuation order has been issued to all of Kosciuszko National Park and Resorts and all other places located within the national park.
The Snowy Mountains are like a second home to us and the people there are like a second family, so our thoughts and best wishes are going out to everyone in the region at this challenging time.
With so many people being faced with such a mammoth disaster the Snowies MultiSport Festival in February is of very minor significance, however, we have had some enquiries from participants, so just wanted to provide you with a quick update on the festival which includes the Snowies MTB Festival, Oceania XTri Championships and Trail Run Australia Snowy Mtns.
Please be assured that over the past month we have been monitoring the situation very carefully. Evacuations within the event area today are precautionary and thankfully, the areas around Jindabyne, Lake Crackenback and Thredbo have not been directly impacted with fire activity at this stage.
We will continue to monitor the situation over the next six weeks and will liaise with local authorities, businesses and the community with regards to any decisions in relation to the event. We will keep all our athletes fully informed via the website and on social media.
We would like to stress that where it is safe to do so and where the impact of the event on the local community and athletes will be a positive one, that the event will go ahead, however, a lot depends on what occurs over the coming weeks.
We wish all our In2Adventure family throughout the country a safe new year and one that we hope will only hold positive and happy moments for you.
All our love
Rob & Simon & the In2Adventure Team.
