Dear adventure race participant,

Welcome to the Manawahe 6 hour race 2016. We are glad to have you on board!

The race starts and finishes at the same (still confidential) location, so it is possible to do the race unsupported. However, a support crew is always very welcome. There is a nice short walk to a waterfall and a coffee cart at the start. Further along the course there are some interesting information displays for your support crew to enjoy.

Your bike should be placed at the start. We can transport one gear bag per participant to the transition area which is at MA3. Please name your gear bag if you want us to bring some gear to this transition area. However, you will need to retrieve your own bike after finishing the race. We have found some volunteers that are prepared to bring your bike back for you. They ask you to donate $10 to the conservation work of our trust. If you like to use this facility, please reply to this email before Friday night.

Key times:

·         Friday around 3PM. The maps and race notes will be uploaded on our website:

·         Friday from 5-6PM. Race-pack collection at Julian’s Berry Farm. Please let us know if you are not coming, so we don’t hang around for you.
