Based on the latest consideration and reporting on the government to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 corona virus that is still ongoing today, we announce 3 important updates about the implementation of the Bromo Marathon 2020 this year:
The format of the race has been changed to virtual remote run
To follow the advice of the government & in order to maintain health protocol, we have to change the format of Bromo Marathon 2020 event at the venue to a virtual remote run while still providing attractive door prizes. Information on the more technical details will be announced on this website and social media channels (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook)
This year's participants are automatically registered for BroMar 2021
For registered participants, both early birds and regular, are automatically registered for next year's event. However, participants who couldn't participate in the Bromo Marathon 2021 could transfer their registration to another person without any fees.
From the two points above, we apologize profusely that the submission of a refund cannot be fulfilled with various considerations as we continue to hold it in the format of a virtual remote run. Every finisher this year is still listed as a Bromo Marathon 2020 runner and are entitled to an official certificate.
We hoped that all participants could understand the situation in order to maintain our common health and safety.
