Now at COVID Level 1, we will be starting the race in traditional fashion (with of course appropriate hygiene and social distancing habits) but have still decided to not hold the Friday Night Race Briefing.  Instead, the usual admin tasks, waivers, maps and general race briefing will be completed at the race venue on SATURDAY MORNING. Teams can arrive at the start line/ race base (which is approximately 45 mins drive from Inglewood) approximately one hour before the allocated start time of 8am, there will be plenty of admin crew on board to streamline the process! Team captains will need to check in at the base.
There will still be a prizegiving at the completion of the race and bbq food for all competitors.

No support crew is needed for the 2020 race.

A bike rack is recommended over a trailer. Cycle Inn on Devon Street have a great range of quality bike racks.
