MORE ABOUT YOUR RACE
There are 2 aid stations on the Half Marathon course. They are at Waikino (12 km), and with 4.5 km to go. See course map.
The aid station 4.5 km from the finish is not accessible to support crews or the public.
PLEASE NOTE: WE'RE A CUPLESS EVENT
Cups will not be provided at the aid station. Please BYO cup/bottle or carry your own nutrition/hydration requirements to help us reduce our event waste.
You should prepare to be self-sufficient for the duration of the race. The aid station will have some fruit, water, and electrolyte drink available to help with your race nutrition, however this should be considered a top-up only, and you shouldn't rely on it for your full race energy or hydration needs.
GEAR BAG DROP
If you have some gear you'd like to discard and leave at the start line, then pick up again at the finish line, that's cool. We'll have a gear drop area at the start line and we'll happily transport your stuff to the finish line/event HQ for you. Be sure to clearly mark your gear bag so it doesn't get picked up by somebody else by mistake.
21 k RUN/WALK TRANSPORT SERVICE
We offer a bus service from the finish in Waihi, back to the start line in Paeroa after your event. It's just $20 per seat and the van will run about hourly throughout the day. Book your seat at the time of entry by just checking the tick boxes. There are limited seats per trip so bookings are essential.
BUSES TO THE START LINE
There are no buses taking competitors to the start line in Paeroa. There is ample parking near the start line and a bus service to get you back to your vehicle after the race. This bus service needs to be booked.
