Finke 2

The 2020 Tatts Finke Desert Race has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The following was posted on the events social media.

To Finke competitors, sponsors, suppliers, volunteers, officials, ambassadors and supporters.
On behalf of the Finke Desert Race committee, I regret to advise that the Tatts Finke Desert Race for 2020 has been cancelled. Australian Government advice to restrict gatherings to 500 people or less meant we had no option but to cancel. Additionally travel to Aputula community (Finke) has been restricted so we wouldn’t be able to camp overnight. This is the right decision based on health grounds.
To all our competitors, we will send further advice on refunds of entry fees. This may take some time and I ask that you be patient as we work through the process. We will send you another message in the coming weeks.
This is the first time in the events 44 year history that we have had to take this action. There is no one to blame here and I am sure there will be many very disappointed people however things are beyond our control.
Keep monitoring the advice from all governments on how to stay as safe as possible.

All being well, we will see you in 2021.
