Following the National Health Minister, Dr Zweli Mkhize’s confirmation of the cases of COVID-19 in South Africa, the Warrior presented by JacarandaFM organisers would like to inform all our participants and spectators planning to attend Warrior #2 Emerald on Saturday, 14 March 2020 that the event will take place as planned.
The Warrior Company’s Managing Director, Fritz Pienaar says, “Though we are not medical experts and take our lead from those who are experts in this field, at this point in time we do not believe cancelling the event is necessary.”
Pienaar assures everyone that each and every event goes through a thorough JOC approval process, this includes meeting strict criteria from the South African Police Department, Emergency Medical Services, local Fire department and Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental officials.
Pienaar goes on to say, “To my knowledge, no mass participation events have been cancelled in South Africa, to date; and local authorities still deem it safe to go ahead with these type of events. We will monitor the situation and will only cancel or postpone the event if we are notified of a valid threat by the authorities.”
The Warrior presented by JacarandaFM organisers look forward to hosting you at the Emerald Casino where participants can escape the urban jungle and take on the mud, conquer the obstacles and experience the fun.
