Covid Travel Restrictions Policy

Here is what happens to your entry to a GFNY if you can’t travel due to government restrictions:

  1. If the government where you live prevents you from traveling to a GFNY, you will get a free entry for the following year.
  2. If the government where you live demands a quarantine of one week or longer upon your return if you travel to a GFNY, you will get a free entry for the following year if you choose not to participate.
  3. If the government where the race is held prevents you from traveling to the race, you will get a free entry for the following year.

90% of your entry fee is spent on the race whether you end up participating or not. That’s why we can’t give a refund if you don’t race and why we have you accept this policy when signing up. However, Covid-19 leads to unique situations where you are banned from traveling to the race. In those cases, GFNY decided to give free entries for the following race edition.
