REGISTRATION AND IMPORTANT INFO
We will be updating you with important info on our website - click here to check out registration, briefing and start times, information about aid stations, drop boxes, and all other important information. Please let us know if you have any questions.

MARATHON CUT OFF TIMES
The marathon consists of predominately technical single track, with a number of metres of vertical to climb - it is a challenging course. Be ready to add a couple of hours to your road marathon time, this is an adventure run! The average time for the marathon is 6.5 hours and the half is 4.5 hours. If you are running the marathon you must be at the half way point (Woolshed Creek car park) by 12:30pm to meet the cut-off. If you make this you are good to carry on. There is no cut off time for the half marathon - once you are on it, the only way out is by foot! 

CASH PRIZES!

$200 bonus to the fastest half marathon individual who can break 2 hours!

ARE YOU FITTER THAN LAST YEAR?
If you ran the race last year, there is a prize up for grabs for the athlete that shaves the most time off their last years time.

TRANSFER FROM FULL TO HALF MARATHON
If you're not quite as fit as you'd hope to be, we are happy to transfer your entry from the full to half marathon - or vice versa if you want to upsize to the marathon.

WAVE STARTS AT THE HALF MARATHON
Due to the increase in numbers for the half marathon, and the bottleneck at the start of the race, you will self seed and start in waves.

DOC CONSENT
DOC (Department of Conservation) do a primo job keeping our tracks and facilities prime for our recreation, and we are stoked with their support to get our ten year consent completed. However this does mean that we have restrictions in terms of numbers we are allowed on the track....we are stoked to announce that we are getting near our limit so if you know anyone still wanting to enter the full or half, we suggest they enter now so they don't miss out.

WILD THINGS NZ TRAIL RUNNING CLUB
We are chuffed to have partnered with the Wild Things NZ Trail Running Club who are helping us promote our Mission Mt Somers race to a wider audience. Wild Things are doing an awesome job of building a website that provides Kiwi trail runners with heaps of Ideas, Information and Inspiration. Particularly impressive is their world-class Trail Directory that already has over 450 featured trail runs from all around the country. Check out their website and give serious consideration to joining as a VIP Member - for $49 a year you can get access to deals that can save you hundreds of dollars and at the same time you'll be supporting the development of the awesome resources that Wild Things are building to encourage trail runners of all levels of experience.
