Other Important Information 

There will be course maps to study at registration at the Staveley Hall. 

42km marathon: there will be a drop box facility at Woolshed Creek carpark which we will take there from the Staveley Hall. This will enable you to have a second bag of supplies for the second half of the marathon, however you must still have the compulsory equipment in this bag. You must also clearly label this bag so you will know which one is yours at our aid station. Please note there is a substantial climb from Sharplin Falls carpark to Aclands shelter, and there is limited water between these points. You can expect to take over an hour to cover this distance, so please carry adequate hydration.

21km half marathon: the shuttle is compulsory and part of your entry fee - no cars will be permitted to enter the Woolshed Creek carpark so if anyone wants to watch you start they will have to walk for 2kms. There will be shuttles leaving from Staveley Hall from 0715 (when they are full). Last shuttle leaves at 0745 so don't be late! There is also $200 CASH for the first person who breaks two hours....
There will be a drop box at the start of the half marathon for you to drop any extra clothing off for us to return to the finish line. Please have this equipment clearly named (Enduranz Events takes no responsibility for lost or damaged property).

Age categories: when you enter you will automatically go into your appropriate age category: Youth (U18), Open (18-39), Veteran (40-49), Classic (50+) (DOB as at 28/10/17). Thanks to Tavendale & Partners, the winners of the Open Marathon race (male and female) receive $500 CASH. Wahoo! So if you think you have a crack at winning the Open title and want $500 but fall out of the age bracket, please email info@enduranzevents.co.nz and we can swap your category. 

All courses can be walked, but there is no separate category for walkers. 

The marathon, 10km  runners will get wet feet in the first kilometre of the race. The perils of off-road running!

AID STATIONS: there will be three Aid Stations on course, one at the 21 kilometre mark, one at Woolshed Creek Hut, and one at the 5 kilometre 'to finish' point (which will service the 10km course). These aid stations will have PURE hydration at them.

TOILETS: there will be public toilets and portaloos at the start line. There are toilets located on course at Woolshed Creek Carpark, Woolshed Creek Hut, Pinnacles Hut and Sharplin Falls Carpark - we would appreciate if you could make an effort to use these please. . 

PRIZEGIVING: This year there will be two separate prize givings. The 5km and 10km races will be will be at 12pm or when the last competitor has finished - which ever comes first. The 21km and 42km prize givings will be at approximately 2pm. Both prize givings will be at the Staveley Hall. There will be sausages and burgers for sale at the finish line as well as food and coffee at the Staveley Store, so bring your cash. You can buy alcohol at the Staveley Store.

There will be a BBQ selling food - prices to be confirmed

Staveley Store will be open from 7am so half marathon runners should be able to squeeze in a flat white! 

Approximate times for the races: 
5km:  Fastest 24 minutes, slowest 48 mins
10km: Fastest 38 minutes, slowest 2 hours 
21km: Fastest 2:05 hours, slowest 7 hours
