It is with much disappointment that Dynamic Running announces that all the events for 3 Marathons in 3 Days 2020 are cancelled.
BREAKING NEWS: Benefit of doing the 3M3D grand slam as a virtual event in 2020
Not sure you want to head out the door to do 3 marathons in 3 consecutive days from 10-12 July? Read this as it may sway your decision.
Dynamic Running takes the health and wellbeing of our members and the wider community very seriously. In this heightened phase of COVID-19 (more commonly known as Coronavirus), we feel it’s appropriate to take steps to ensure we protect this wherever we can. To date we have only cancelled one event – the 3 Marathons in 3 Days – as it affects many interstate and overseas competitors and it requires a considerable volunteer base. We have postponed other events, but as we cannot predict at this stage how the situation with COVID-19 is going to unfold, we have not set dates for the races as of yet. Dynamic Running hasn’t taken these decision lightly and we share the disappointment that we know will be felt by everyone involved.
The 3M3D (10-12 July 2020) has been changed to a virtual event.
A ‘Virtual Dynamic Runner’ is a competitor who opts to complete their nominated event on their own, anywhere in the world, anytime on or before the event date – these dates are not available yet. The race fee is the same, but you get your medal sent out to you in the mail. Merchandise items may be available, if not, you will receive a full refunded on those. The best part of this is that all your hard training doesn’t go to waste AND you get a medal for your efforts. The medal is sent out in the mail after the race date. You can read more about our Virtual Dynamic Runner option here: http://www.dynamicrunning.com.au/virtualdynamicrunner/
You can order merchandise for the 3M3D. Cut off for orders will be early June. Competitors who want to defer to next year (this is not recommended), will receive their merchandise at that time.
In short: YES. Yet, competitors have numerous options. You can:
- Request a full refund (except for donations) up to 31 May 2020,
- Switch to do your event(s) as a ‘Virtual Dynamic Runner’ (partial refund).
All refunds have been processed.
Your refund will be processed back to the original payment method you used to pay for your registration.
Register Now will attempt to process the refund onto the original card as a first step. If the card has expired and you will need to contact Dynamic Running to sort out a bank transfer.
No. Except if your credit card has expired.
Yes, as long as you let us know by 31 May 2020.
I have purchased ‘optional items’ such as singlets, t-shirts, 3M3D buffet dinner, etc. , will this be refunded?
Yes, all optional items will be refunded. This does NOT include donations (see below). This will take place at the same time as race fees are refunded.
Yes, that would be a very kind gesture. To donate your entry fee to a charity or organisation please email us to action this. You do not get to select which charity/organisation the money goes to as Dynamic Running selects one charity/organisation for the Dynamic in a Dress and one for the 3M3D. If you have your own charity you would like to donate to, please request the full refund and do it yourself. You can also donate your entry fee to Dynamic Running to help us out, but we would recommend you rather take up the ‘Virtual Dynamic Runner’ option, as that way you get a medal too.
