Frequently asked questions
Can I enter on the day?
No. Entries close at midnight 27 September 2020 unless sold out prior and no entries can be received after this. Unless you wish to add $100 to your entry fee which will be donated to the Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter Service. If this is the case then email us and if numbers permit your entry may be accepted.
Aid Stations - how many and where are they?
Is there car parking at the Start/Finish?
Yes, there is excellent car parking available.
I’m flying to Napier for the race - how do I get to the start and back again?
You can purchase a bus ticket to get you to and from the event. This must be purchased in advance when you enter to ensure we have enough seats for everyone. The bus departs the Napier i-SITE at 7am and returns after prize giving. There will be a gear tent for you to leave your belongings while you are running the event.
Can I drive to the start/finish line?
Yes you can and there is parking available nearby.
Are there medals for finishers?
How hard is the course?
Why is there a minimum age for entry?
This event is challenging and takes competitors over relatively remote terrain so should you require assistance, it may not be immediately available. While many young athletes are capable of running the distance, the question from a health and safety perspective is whether they have the maturity to successfully manage the situation should they find themselves lost or injured. When we were working through the extensive health and safety plan for the event, this was an area that was highlighted for concern.
