ČSOB Bratislava Marathon 2020 will eventually take place in a virtual form.
Despite our months-long effort, the event will eventually not take place in its usual form of a running event for public, with a great variety of disciplines. Based on our actual epidemiologic situation in Bratislava, an increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in last days, as well as due to yesterday´s statement from the Minister of Health of Slovak Republic together with the Chief Public Health Officer of Slovak Republic, ČSOB Bratislava marathon 2020 will take place exclusively virtually.
Currently we are focussing fully to prepare:
– detailed information and instructions for all participants regarding the virtual races.
– We will be sharing information about how to refund or transfer start fee and about other alternatives for registered runners,
– as well as the information regarding the distribution of ČSOB Bratislava Marathon 2020 start packages, which will take place as planned – from Wednesday (2 September 2020) in Eurovea.
Together with the Slovak Athletic Federation, we are working on an alternative for Slovak Championship in half marathon, on a special track for registered runners of Slovak Athletic Federation.
Final information and instructions will be announced at a press conference, taking place on 31st August at 10:00 am and we will be informing you in detail right after.
Thank you all very much for your huge support and understanding and we would like to kindly ask for your patience as we are finalizing information and instructions, given this recently changed situation.
