AN UPDATE REGARDING SPEED RACK EVENTS
Nearly a decade ago, Speed Rack was born out of a desire to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer while providing much deserved recognition to the womxn who make our industry remarkable.
Amid the continued spread of COVID-19 in regions on our Speed Rack Season 9 tour, we are actively assessing what will keep our community safest during these uncertain times and are announcing a few updates to our upcoming programming:
Speed Rack New Orleans will occur on Monday, March 16th at 6pm without an audience. We will implement social distancing in accordance CDC recommendations for the intimate group of our hosts, judges, participants and volunteers on-site. The competition will be live-streamed on our Facebook and Instagram platforms (@speed_rack) and will live on IGTV following the event. While we are immensely disappointed to not have our fans and some of our strongest supporters in the room to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of these womxn, we believe it is our responsibility to exhibit an abundance of caution and avoid large public gatherings for the time being.
New Orleans ticket purchasers will receive instructions on how to obtain a refund if interested, but we urge ticket holders and anyone who is able to consider donating to the Pink Agenda at www.fundraise.thepinkagenda.org. Speed-Rack can assist with any donation questions at email@example.com.
Our upcoming event in Washington, D.C. on March 30th will either be hosted as a live stream, without an audience, in similar fashion to our New Orleans event or postponed for a later date. We are currently working with our sponsors, vendors, participants, judges, and hosts to determine what measure is most appropriate at this time and will continue to share updates as soon as they become available. If postponed, tickets already purchased will be honored on the rescheduled date.
Speed Rack’s finals in Chicago on Chicago on May 3rd will be postponed. A new date will be announced in the weeks to come and we will be honoring all existing ticket purchases on the rescheduled date.
The safety of our industry and this incredible community remains our highest priority. We are immensely grateful for your continued support and the ability to navigate these challenging times together.
