Timing mats will be located across the course and will give you a minimum of splits every 2.5km. Live tracking is available on all courses. All timing results will be available live online by age group category and will be based on the participant’s mat time.
There will be a bag check service on the Beach Side of MacLean Park. Look out for the signs. Your bib will have a bag tag to tear off and attach. You must NOT drop any gear at aid stations or anywhere on the course for later retrieval.
Kāpiti locals we’re having an EXPO at HMC Kāpiti on the Saturday before the event where you can collect your bib. Dark Horse Coffee will be brewing the good stuff and we’ll have merch up for grabs.
Otherwise if you’re unable to make either of these options work, pop into our rego tent early on event day.
You will need your distance and race number when you go in to pick up your bib.
Saturday 11th 12 – 4pm
Sunday 12th on site 7-8am
