All entrants must be fully vaccinated and to present their vaccine passport at the registration of each race of the series.
There will be three races on each night with the first race starting at 5.30PM which is the children’s race, then followed at 5.45PM which is the competitive race and the second race starts at 6.15PM which is the fun run.
The Competitive Race is an Athletics NZ sanctioned event. It costs $5 to run in each week’s event, plus there is a one-off $10 sanctioned fee that covers all of the five races in the series. Athletes who are registered athletes are exempt the sanctioned fee as this is covered by their registration. The Fun Run also costs $5 to run in each week’s event, but there is no additional $10 sanctioned fee. Entries and payments can be made online for either of the 5K races, or entries and payment can be made on the day.
Every competitor for a 5K race must complete an entry form – whether they have entered online or not – and take it to the registration tent. Even though your vaccine pass was sighted to enter the Race Zone, your vaccine pass will be scanned when you hand over your entry form.
Entries close on January 24 at 8PM but can enter on January 25 at the start.
