With regard to 30K and Relay Shirts
To our Around the Bay 30K Road Race Participants,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform you that race participant 30k shirts will not be available for pickup race weekend.
The current labour disruption by truckers at the Port of Vancouver has prevented the delivery of New Balance shirts to the Around the Bay Road Race kit pick up expo. As you may already be aware, the disruption has been in effect since February 26th. New Balance has placed a priority air shipment to its Ontario facility for the goods once the dispute is resolved and all 30k shirts will be distributed to race participants who picked up their race kit race weekend.
Once we receive the shirts, you will be advised in what manner we will be distributing the shirts to you.
On behalf of us all at the Around the Bay Road Race and New Balance Canada, we apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers by this labour dispute. The situation and goods to ship are being monitored very closely and we hope for a speedy delivery.
Yours in running,
Mike Zajczenko - Race Director Around the Bay Road Race Jon Purdy -Marketing Manager New Balance Canada
