Race location will be announced in the final race email one week before the event. 

The race HQ and finish will be within 20mins drive of Whangamata.

For the 12hr you may have to drop off your kayaks and MTBs before race start. Locations for this will be in the final race email.



Accommodation is easy to come by in Whangamata. There is a local campground (Whangamata Motor Camp) and plenty of holiday homes available for rent. We recommend staying Friday and Saturday nights in Whangamata, so that you can be as relaxed as possible on race morning and stay for prizegiving on Sunday.
