We have flagged the 'Late Rate' for this year!
Friday night (5th April)  registration/ race pack pick-ups in New Plymouth, 4pm -7pm.  
Venue: Frontrunner Store, Devon Street, New Plymouth
The crew will be at the Frontrunner Store between 4pm and 7pm, come anytime to collect your race packs- (numbers, start line directions, race notes etc)
No gear checks (we trust that you take the compulsory gear list seriously) and no formal race briefing- the race notes will contain all you need to know (for now...)
The store will be open if you need some pre race hydration, gels, socks, shoes, motivational pep talks....
Saturday morning (6th April)- Parking at race base from 7:45am, check in.
Short briefing 30mins before race start, with maps given out.
Race starts at 9:00am.
Race finish- 3:00-3:30pm.  Prizegiving and BBQ to follow.


No support crew is needed for the 2024 race. Teams will need to carry supplies (food, drink etc) with them for the entire race. 

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

  • Beanie

  • Whistle

  • Food and Drink for the day
