On your 15km course…
Outside of the awesome scenery on course, entrants will pass our course entertainment, a bunch of supportive event marshals and 4 support stations (Ngatai Road – 4.2km , Darraghs Road -6.9km, Maxwells Road – 10.7km and Kulim Park – 12.2km). Each support station is manned by a passionate local community group and will be stacked with R-Line & water, plus will have first aid and toilets available. Important intersections on your event course have been marked with BLUE arrows and distance markers will be placed at every km of the event course with BLUE km markers. Oh and be sure to look out for https://photos4sale.co.nz (our offical event photographers) as they operate a PWYW model for event photos too – PWYW sounds familiar right?
– 7.50am (for all walkers and runners)
Train Crossing Notes.
After approx 10.8km, the event course crosses the railway lines on Maxwells Road. In the unlikely event the bells are sounding as you approach, you’ll simply be marshaled around a turn point on Maxwells Road prior to the railway lines and you’ll be on a detour which then merges back with the main event course less than 1km later. The “train detour” is measured so irrespective of any detour, each 15km entrant will run the exact same distance on the day.
Let us take care of everything – you just enjoy your day!
– PWYW pricing for the 15km event is on until April the 4th, 2019. We’d love you to pay the entry fee you’d expect to pay for a professional event like this one, but ultimately you, the participant, decides. If you might not have entered yourself (and the kids?) because it adds up to more than you’d like…well welcome to PWYW baby!
– 10 days out from the event PWYW pricing will take a backseat. From April 5th, 2019 until event day, all 15km entries received will be charged our typical Standard Entry Fees ($50.00). We like to call this our “deterrent” pricing strategy. For PWYW to work, we need to have an accurate prediction of final entry numbers. This way, we hope fewer people will “wait and see”, and more people will enter early so the PWYW dream can live on. *fistbump*.
