There is a bus uption available for anyone that requires transport from the finish line at Whakamaru Christian Camp to the start line. This is optional and is designed for people that don't have ‘support crews' with them to drop them at their start point in the morning. There is an additional cost that comes with booking the bus option, and this can be booked when entering your chosen event option. Alternatively the bus can be booked at a later date if you are unsure at this stage whether or not you will require it.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are doing one of the mountain biking events and are booking the optional event transport to your start line you will have to attend the Friday registration. You will drop off your bike on the Friday when you register, and then on Saturday morning you will park your car at the finish area, get on a bus (with your gear, helmet, shoes... etc...) and be taken to your start line, your bike will be waiting for you there.

Bus Times: (leaving from the finish area - Whakamaru Christian Camp. Please park your car in the adjoining reserve area, as directed by parking marshals)
