Kauri Dieback disease is threatening Kauri with extinction in Northland . There is no cure for Kauri Dieback disease, it can be spread by just a pinhead of soil, and you can't tell by looking whether a tree is infected or not. But kauri will be saved – by people like you.

 

We ask that you thoroughly clean and dry all your equipment (including shoes and packs) prior to the event to ensure no soil can be transferred. We will also be following DOC guidelines and using disinfectant, Sterigene, as recommended, to sterilise any equipment. We refer you to the guidelines.

 CONDITIONS 

You must be fit and well when you undertake any of the Cape Brett courses. We will have medical assistance on site, but you must be starting the race in good condition. 

 

We understand that injuries happen, and we will happily change your distance if needed. Please do not undertake these courses if you are not 100% sure you are ready for them. The last thing we want is to be sending in the heli to pick you up. A heli ride is cool but not if you have a medical team around you! 

 

Your safety is our focus and if our medics or staff make the determination that you are not fit to start or continue the course then we will remove you from the race. We are not being mean - we just want you back home safe at the end of the race. No race is worth putting yourself or others in danger for. Please follow the directions of the marshals and medics at all times.

You must be over the age of 18 to take part in the 42km race. Persons aged 16 to 17 can participate in the 17km race but must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the race.

 

Persons over the age of 16 may compete in the 7km race without an accompanying adult. An additional waiver will need to be signed at race registration for any persons under the age of 18 and must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Supporters are welcome at the event, in fact, we encourage you to bring your entourage. 

The main race village will have food and drinks available to purchase.
