Compulsory pre event registration
The compulsory pre-event registration will take place in Auckland City where all event participants will be required to register;
Registration Venue - Hilton Hotel
Date: Thursday 20 March, 2014
Time: 10.00am - 8.00pm
For those people who live out-of-town or who definitely can't register on the Thursday you will be able to register to get on your event ferry at Pier 2, Fullers Terminal in Auckland City on the morning of the event, and then register over on the island for your event (collect race number, transponder, goodie bag etc).
**Please note that all mountain bikers need to register and bring MTBs to the Registration Venue on the Thursday as mountain bikes are transported to Motutapu Island on the Friday morning by Fullers ferry.
Please contact Nick Carroll if you are a mountain biker and you're unable to register at the Thursday registration, email@example.com There are limited spaces to take MTBs on the Saturday morning ferries, so we need to keep track of numbers.
Each aid station will have the following;
- Gu Brew Electrolyte drink (final 3 aid stations)
- Basic first aid kit
- Sun Screen
Note: While we will have plenty of aid stations on all course options, we advise (as we would with any off-road event) that you come prepared with your own supplies. We would thoroughly recommend bringing your own hydra-pack complete with liquid (minimum of 2 litres), food, extra clothes and a basic first aid kit.
There will be several aid stations for all event options, please see details below;
