The MCL Construction TRIPLE PEAKS management team are willing to give permission to youth under the statuary age outlined in its policies and term and conditions. Our team will look at this case by case and consider if the participant has the required maturity and physical ability to take part in the leg or legs of the race that they a registered. When we do give permission for participation for younger participants to take part there is an onus on parents and/or guardians to insure that the competitor is well prepared and supported as they take on the challenge. (see terms and conditions)
Plan A is for a mass start behind a lead car climbing through Havelock North and Mt Erin. Descend Mt Erin, cross the Tukituki River and then ascend and descend Kahuraniki before recrossing the Tuki. Ascend and decend Te Mata Peak to finish in the Village.
Plan B, should we be unable to cross the Tukituki River, is to go up and down Mt Erin twice on 4 different routes of which the access road will be used only once. If needed this will be a really good fun route. Following the decent to the Tukituki we will proceed on the western side of the river to Te Mata Peak.
If you do not meet the cutoff time after descending Mt Erin, you will be directed towards a shortcut which heads directly to Te Mata Peak before crossing the river. This measure is about the safety and welfare of the volunteers. All who start and finish will be deemed to be finishers.
An important Note on Pre Race Training: Yes Train heaps, but not on the private land that makes up big chunks of the course. Anyone caught training on the private land on the course will be disqualified. Because if you abuse it we lose it - Kia tupato.
Timing devices must be returned at the Finish Line
To enable us to run this event we have sought permission from a number of local landowners. It is important that we treat the land that we pass through with respect.
