Official Swiss Alps 100 and COVID-19 statement. (March 14, 2019)Safety is a top priority for the Swiss Alps 100 and remains committed to your health and well-being. We recognize and share the concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We recognize that the situation is dynamic and evolves each day, with new information and understanding that informs the health and safety protocols. To the greatest extent possible, the Swiss Alps 100 will be implementing preventive measures and controls to ensure the health and safety of our runners, race volunteers, crew members, and spectators.
We believe that it is extremely unlikely that this year's event will be canceled at this time. All decisions regarding our event will be made with advice and input from our partners in the health community, most notably KWRO144 (Kantonale Walliser Rettungsorganisation) and the Kanton Wallis.
Since the situation is so dynamic, however, we will continue to regularly evaluate this decision based upon what the scientific community learns about coronavirus and what public health officials believe to be in the best interest of the communities they serve.
This is a challenging time for all of us. Perhaps the most important challenge of them all is to keep yourself and those around you healthy. We ask that you follow the protocols and information that are presented through the CDC's website regarding good hygiene, travel abroad restrictions and what to do if you feel you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.
Thank you for your support of the Swiss Alps 100.
