The bike drop location is released at 7am on the morning of the event, drop your bike off from 9am and head to registration. There you will receive your goodie bag, race bibs and other information. There is a briefing at approximately 12pm then you will be bused to the start location to begin racing at 1pm. We encourage teams to set up camping in either tents or caravans at Teretonga for the Saturday night (the venue is available to set up your site on the Friday afternoon between 4 and 6pm)
The course details will be secret until race day. However the second day will be contained within the Sandy Point and Oreti Beach areas. You will be given the maps on race day with time to study them. No advanced map reading skills are required. The race will include MTB, orienteering, trekking, kayaking and a secret stage.
Please note - there is no requirement for prior kayaking experience and/or specific training in a kayak but it would be an advantage. Kayak and water sport equipment will be provided.
This year we are donating a portion of every entry to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. $40 from each standard team and $100 from each corporate team will be donated to support our local rescue helicopter service. In 2022 and 2023 we donated $3000 each year from your entries, so thank you!
This year we are excited to add our corporate category to our line up. By entering this category you are becoming a silver sponsor and helping us to put the event on. Your team will compete for the brand new exclusive corporate trophy. You are able to have flags and a gazebo at the finish line. We will promote your company on our facebook pages and best of all, $100 of your entry goes to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
