ASICS Austrian Women's Run®

is cancelled for May 17, 2020

Tuesday, March 24, 2020 - Dear runners, dear Nordic walkers! In the last 3 weeks we have been intensively concerned with the topic of COVID-19 and its consequences for the ASICS Austrian Women's Run 2020. We have gathered a lot of information and facts and consulted experts, representatives of the Federal Government and the City of Vienna. From today’s perspective and taking into account the latest developments of the pandemic, a major event such as the ASICS Austrian Women's Run with up to 35,000 participants and over 100,000 visitors on May 16 and 17, cannot possibly take place. With a heavy heart we hereby have to announce the cancellation of the ASICS Austrian Women's Run for May 17, 2020 and the children's run the day before. You can find more information below.

Cancellation of the ASICS Austrian Women's Run

 

Dear runners and Nordic walkers,

in the last 3 weeks we have been intensively concerned with the topic of COVID-19 and its consequences for the ASICS Austrian Women's Run 2020. We have gathered a lot of information and facts and consulted experts, representatives of the Federal Government and the City of Vienna. From today’s perspective and taking into account the latest developments of the pandemic, a major event such as the ASICS Austrian Women's Run with up to 35,000 participants and over 100,000 visitors on both event days, on May 16th and 17th, 2020, cannot possibly take place.

With a heavy heart we hereby have to announce the cancellation of the ASICS Austrian Women's Run for May 17, 2020 and the children's run the day before.

For the last seven months our team of 12 employees has been working intensively on the organization of the event. This year we wanted to set a strong example for solidarity, courage and self-confidence of women and girls with our slogan "WE RUN TO MOVE". Unfortunately, last week our hope that the event can still take place in May has faded day by day.

This cancellation is a heavy blow for us, both emotionally and economically. It is the most difficult situation in the 32-years history of the Austrian Women's Run.

Although nobody can currently predict exactly how long and how intensively the COVID-19 crisis will occupy us, our outlook and our motivation are already geared towards the future and we are working on a possible replacement date for autumn 2020. We will keep you up to date on all developments regarding the possible replacement date.

In the past few days we have received numerous e-mails from you, which gave us a lot of encouragement, motivation and express your solidarity. Thanks a lot for your support!

As painful as the current preventive steps and the cancellation are for all of us, they are necessary so that we can hopefully run or walk together again in a few months.

Until then, we would like to motivate you to keep moving.

Stay confident and healthy!

 

Best regards,

Ilse Dippmann and the team of the Austrian Women’s Run

We keep you updated

Due to official orders of the Austrian government, outdoor events with over 500 participants are prohibited until April 13, 2020. The population is encouraged to take responsibility and to reduce social contacts as much as possible.

Because of this situation we have to inform you about the following:

 

Cancellation of the FRAUEN FUN RUN

Our FRAUEN FUN RUN was planned for April 1, 2020 but cannot take place because of the official prohibition of big events by the Austrian government.
