REGISTRATION is the  ANZAC Hall (cnr Bell & Birdwood Sts), Featherston.

Registration opens at 7.45am.

START TIMES:
Early start at 8.45 am.  This start is reserved for riders who expect to take up to 4 hours to complete either the 80km or 64km course.  If you are unable to complete 80k in under 4 hours we suggest you enter the 64k event. If you wish to use the early start you must select that option when you complete your entry form. E-bikes are welcome in the early start.

80km first group starts at 9.15am

64km start at 9.45am

Your starting group is determined by your estimated finish time. You must start in your allocated wave as you will only receive an official race time if you do so.

If you start in the wrong wave you will receive a personal (mat to mat) time only.

For safety purposes wave sizes will be limited to 50 or less.

​​​​​​​Finish is on Revans Street, Featherston (as you come back into town). If you do not complete the ride please notify the race manager. Please ride straight through the finish line.  Do not stop, do not linger, do not return.  Your timing tag is not reusable.
