We need to be in Covid Orange or Green for the event to take place. We will endeavour to confirm by 20 March 2022 if the event is going ahead.

If the Cole Murray Cape Kidnappers Trail Run has to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, then competitors can opt for one of the following options:

1. Transfer your entry to the November 2022 Cole Murray Cape Kidnappers Trail Run OR

2. A refund of your entry fee, minus a $10 administration charge.


All participants must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 as at event date. This is in accordance with the Government mandate for events, under the Covid-19 Protection Framework.

As a continuing commitment to the health and safety of all our participants, staff and volunteers, Jamrac Events are adopting the voluntary code of conduct that has been set out for the NZ events sector. Here are the key points for us all to follow when coming to our events:

Stay home if you are unwell

All participants must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. We will be contact tracing at all our events. We will have The NZ COVID Tracer QR code’s around event HQ and we would encourage everyone to scan. We will also be using the event timing as part of our contact tracing system.

Follow basic hygiene measures:

  • Hand hygiene - requently wash or sanitise your hands. We will have hand sanitiser stations available at event base and at aid stations.

  • Cough and sneeze etiquette – sneezing or coughing into the crook of your elbow or covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then putting the tissue in a bin and cleaning your hands

  • Do not spit or do “snot rockets” while out on the course

  • Practise physical distancing. The course is wide, there is plenty of room for everyone.

  • Avoiding touching your face – hard surfaces can be contaminated with infectious droplets. Hands can be contaminated after contact with these surfaces. If you need to touch your face, clean your hands first.

  • Cleaning surfaces and frequently touched items – we will be implementing frequent cleaning around high traffic areas such as registration and the finish line.

  • Ensure that you and any accompanying supporters scan the event QR code at athlete check in and again on race day at race HQ.


  • DO NOT swap, trade, sell or give your entry to someone else.  This is never ok, but due to heightened requirements around contact tracing, we consider this to be a serious transgression and will result in a permanent ban from all future Jamrac Events.

  • Each distance starts as a separate wave to reduce early course congestion.

  • Seed yourself according to your pace - faster participants to the front.
