IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR AUCKLAND
Here is your race week update for Auckland. Please read this page carefully to make sure you have a fantastic day on Saturday.
New location for start/finish
We have decided to move the start and finish area to the lower portion of Totara Park. The new address is:
The reason for this change is that this area has substantially more covered areas in case of rain.
If you have not had your race packs couriered, they will be at the start finish area for you to collect.
If you are travelling from the CITY - EXIT 451
Take the Hill Road exit 451 and then turn left. Travel past the botanical Gardens taking the first left hand turn into Charles Prevost Drive.
If you're travelling from the SOUTH
Take Exit 449A-B to Manukau and turn left. Travel along great South Road until Grand Vue Road road where you turn left. At the end of Grand Vue road turn left into Hill Road. Turn left at lights into Charles Prevost Drive.
Parking will be in the surrounding streets nearby. Please allow extra time to find a parking space.
Plan for rain (and hope for the best).
XRACE is rain or shine event - we race regardless.
Nippers will start at 9:30 AM from the start finish area
This is dependent on the weather. If there is continual rain from 11 AM onward, we will cancel any prize-giving. If it is drizzly, prize-giving will still go ahead. This will begin at 12:15 PM. You do not need to be on-site to collect your trophies. If your team wins an age-group award, we will dispatch your trophy out by courier.
For this weekend, any child that has raced in any previous XRACE THIS season (2017) is ineligible for any trophy. To win a trophy, either age-group or overall, this must be the first XRACE you have entered this season. We welcome teams that want to compete again to enjoy their XRACE but please come forward and excuse yourselves from any merit trophies. Thank you for this in advance.
