There is a great deal of uncertainty as to what the future may hold, although it is very likely that the rate of infection will escalate as will restrictions imposed by authorities.

Running a rogaine, whether metropolitan or in the countryside, creates difficult health and logistical challenges. Holding an event during the outbreak is likely to attract drastically fewer entrants, but more importantly it would be socially irresponsible. We must do our part to slow the spread of the virus.

Rogaining Tasmania has little choice but to join the chorus of other organisations who will not be holding events for the foreseeable future. Events will resume as soon as practical after the restrictions and risks have passed.
