The Fedhealth Magalies Monster MTB Classic and Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run have been postponed due to Covid-19.
That’s following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s national address on 30 May, announcing a return to Lockdown Level 2 for South Africa, in light of a possible third wave of Covid-19 infections.
As a result, Fedhealth Medical Scheme has decided to postpone the Fedhealth Magalies Monster MTB Classic and the Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run events that were slated to take place on 5 June and 6 June, respectively.
“We deeply regret having to postpone these events at ATKV Buffelspoort this coming weekend,” says Jeremy Yatt, Fedhealth Principal Officer. “But, as a responsible player in the health sector, Fedhealth is simply not willing to risk the health and safety of any participant at our events. Furthermore, we are fully supportive of all government initiatives intended to prevent the spread of the pandemic and lower the pressure put on hospitals during this critical time.”
“We are optimistic that restrictions will be eased over the next couple of months. By 7 June we will confirm the new date for the 2021 event,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports, organisers of the Fedhealth Magalies Monster MTB Classic and Fedhealth Platinum Trail Run.
