Slight Alteration to Entry Requirements - 20 February 2022

Team Captains Please NOTE:

  • All participants will be required to complete a Covid-19  Pre-Event Declaration, within 24 hours of the event commencing.  The declaration forms will be included in the Team packs - issued to each Team Captain, either on the Friday Night or Saturday Morning of the event by the Ride Director on each route.  All Declarations MUST be returned to the Ride Director, before you start the event.   
  • ALL Participants will need to show their Vaccination Certificate (Green Tick Status) to a M2M Official at the start of the ride.

We are recommending that Team Captains follow the process outlined below.

  • Step 1:  Collect Team Bags including the individual Covid Declaration Forms from your Ride Director at the Start location - either Friday night or Saturday morning.
  • Step 2:  All Team members complete the Covid Declaration Form.
  • Step 3:  Each participant lines up and hands back the Covid Declaration and shows their Covid Vaccination Status (Green Tick) using either your phone or via a paper vaccination certificate.
  • We are recommending this is completed when you collect the Team Bags on the Friday night (6:00 pm to 7:pm) or Saturday morning from (7:30 am to 8:30 am).

We apologise for this change, but we have had legal advice that Covid Vaccination Status verification cannot be performed by the Team Captains as originally planned.
