Afternoon Tea at Winter Competitions
The social aspect of our competitions is important, and SAMA will be providing afternoon tea on Relay Days.
However, with the race start times scheduled for most weeks, an organised afternoon tea at the end is not practicable. Instead participants are encouraged to bring their own refreshments on these days to be consumed when convenient.
SAMA Stance on Mask Wearing
Whilst there is no longer a requirement to wear Face Masks under current SA Government COVID-19 restrictions, all participants at SAMA events still have the option of wearing a mask if they prefer. This is recommended when in close vicinity of other persons, such as at the start/finish line and check-in location, and all other times when physical distancing is not practical. This is a personal choice and should be respected by others.
SA Masters Athletics will conduct their events safely and in a manner that minimises risk of infection by COVID-19.
It is recommended that all participants in SAMA competition, including athletes, officials, volunteers and spectators continue to follow health advice and maintain social distancing and wash or sanitise their hands regularly. We also request that those persons who are feeling ill should refrain from taking part.
