6km / 12km Events
Coloured start zones are used to separate participants based on their estimated time taken to finish the event. These zones are used to ensure that participants are kept safe and to reduce congestion at the start line. Note: On the day, it is important to line up in the start zone you selected when entering the event. If not, your recorded finish time may be inaccurate.
2km Kids Challenge
In the 2km Kids Challenge, children line up in the start zone which corresponds to their age on event day. When assembled in their start zone, the kids are taken through a fun warm up by Sport Waikato's Team Energize.
