S04 Event Safety and COVID Requirements
Happy New Year from Team HYROX,
We are looking forward to an exciting 2022 race season and we appreciate the support that you and the rest of the #hysociety has shown us. Navigating this time is not easy with the current COVID rules. Our team is in constant contact with the cities and venues about updated rules and regulations. Our goal has been and will continue to be to keep you, our dedicated athletes, informed and safe.
In light of the current situation with new COVID Vaccination rules we want to let you know that Nationally the trend is towards all fitness events becoming ‘vaccinated only’ events. Vaccination and testing rules change from state to state and we will continue to operate as objectively as possible depending on the guidance we are given. As 2021 has shown us, rules differ at the state and local level. We will continue to abide by the local COVID policies for each host city.
If you are not vaccinated, please be mindful that we do not make the rules and you may not be able to race in certain cities. Just as with all choices, we must individually take responsibility for them. The price to play in races, gyms, bars, restaurants and practically all social gatherings is increasingly becoming a vaccination. To be clear, HYROX is not partial to either side of the debate; only the executor of the policies of each city. If you are currently signed up for a race we are happy to transfer your entry to another race but will not be granting refunds.
As of now, we will stay dedicated to producing the safest and most inclusive events possible. We appreciate your understanding as we respect the hard work you are putting into training for the race.
Please pay attention to your inbox and social media for upcoming rules on COVID vaccination and testing requirements as the races get close.
