These events start at Jack's Point, near Coromandel Town, at 11.30 am on Saturday Morning. The Race Briefing is at 11.15am.
The weather in Coromandel in May is generally settled but conditions can get very cold, wet and windy up on the Coromandel ranges at any time of the year. For this reason you must carry or wear a windproof jacket and polyprop top and carry a survival blanket with you. It is a long race and we recommend you carry enough water and food for the duration of the race. There will be a number of water and R-Line electrolyte stops on route with some limited refreshments. The race is supported by a comprehensive safety plan.
Each competitor will be provided with a race number which must be visible at all times.
The race will be supported by comprehensive safety backup including land based marshals and paramedic support on the course.
CONSIDERATION FOR THE LAND
To enable us to run this event we have sought permission from a number of private landowners, DOC and other interested parties. It is important that we treat the land that we pass through with respect. To this end it is a compulsory requirement that everyone carry out their own rubbish.
