MORE ABOUT YOUR RACE
There is only 1 aid station on the Race the Train course, at about the halfway mark.
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.
Sorry, there is no Teams division in the Race the Train event because unfortunately there is nowhere to access the course for a team change-over.
GETTING TO THE START LINE
You should use the FREE TRAIN from Waihi to the start line or make your own arrangements for drop-off. There is NO PARKING at Waikino.
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 so you can wrap up warm again after your race. Be sure to clearly mark your gear bag so it doesn't get picked up by somebody else by mistake.
