Larian Hutan Kita
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: LARIAN HUTAN KITA 2020 WILL BE GOING VIRTUAL
Dear Runners, In view of the current and ongoing 3rd wave situations pertaining to the nouvelle coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic across Malaysia (and the rest of the globe), it is with lots of courage, effort and pain that we are forced to announce that Larian Hutan Kita 2020 will be going virtual based on the directives that we have received from Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Malaysia and Forestry Department Peninsular Malaysia. The main reasons for the change of status are as follows:- a) The uncertainty created by the pandemic most notably with regards to the event date originally scheduled for 21st March 2020 being subjected to pending postponement since 12 March 2020. b) The announcement by the Government of Malaysia via our Prime Minister regarding enforcement of social distancing as we move into Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO). We have had the chance to consider alternative solutions from postponement of the event to a later date in 2021, implementation of new and stricter SOP’s where runners will be briefed online, runners subjected to mandatory medical test, separating the “Runners Entitlement Pack Collection” (REPC) to 2 or more locations depending on the race distance signed/ categories, introduction of staggered start and extending and separating checkpoints/ water stations, placing additional support systems along the race course most notably a separate COVID-19 dedicated medical support point and separating the race course for the 2 major distance categories. The fact that no one and nobody could give us an absolute guarantee with regards to the safety of every participant (4293 runners), event crews, volunteers, their family members and the general public even if we have done the above coupled with ongoing 3rd wave of the pandemic, we are force to change the status of the race in 2020 to a ‘virtual run’. We must reassure everyone that we deem it as the best decision to take in protection of the health and safety of all participants, event crews, volunteers, our partners, our sponsors, their family members and the people of Putrajaya in view of the current and ongoing situations pertaining to COVID-19. Every runner will receive an email between now and the next 72 hours with regards to this announcement and the detailed procedures/ terms-conditions and additional challenges concerning Larian Virtual Hutan Kita 2020. A refund would not be possible owing to the fact that when the event was postponed 9 days before the original race date, all event properties, winner entitlements, refreshments and most notably the runners entitlements have been delivered to our warehouse in Klang Valley. We hope that this announcement will create more certainty in your personal plans for the coming months after all the uncertainties in our lives created by the pandemic. We hope to get your understanding of the above and trust this would be the best way forward for everyone concerned in view of the total circumstances we are all living in today. We hope and pray that each of you will stay well, stay healthy, stay safe and stay positive.
