Historic Leyburn Sprints postponed
The 25th Historic Leyburn Sprints have been postponed by three weeks until 11-12 September due to COVID-19.
Sprints President Tricia Chant said that although the State Government has lifted the Brisbane lockdown, the Premier had asked people from those 11 affected Local Government Areas to refrain from visiting regional areas.
This meant many competitors and spectators from greater Brisbane would not be able to attend the event on the original date of 21-22 August.
“We are very mindful of running not only a successful event, but also a safe one, and we feel that this is the best solution for all involved,” Mrs Chant said.
“We are working as fast as we can to advise our competitors, suppliers, sponsors, supporters and others involved in the Sprints.”
“With less than two weeks to go to the original date we were already almost fully prepared and expect the re-scheduled event will offer all the same great features and attractions.”
