This event may be postponed or cancelled in extreme weather conditions at the Event Managers discretion. If this occurs there will be no refunds, but you will have the option to receive a credit for the following year's Hobsonville Runway Challenge or transfer to another total sport event within 12 months (excluding the DUAL, Tussock Traverse, T42 and The Legend).
All entrants must stay on the course and pass all marshals. Tail-end marshals will follow the last competitor and ensure everyone is off the mountain safely.
The tracks are open to the public so please respect their space.
Qualified ambulance and safety support will be available both out on the course and at the event base.
Entrants must help other entrants in trouble and notify the next available course marshal.
If your child(ren) would like to enter the 3km Kids Adventure run you may run with them for support but please do not participate on the obstacles. This is to keep the flow of people moving at each obstacle and for the safety of the children. The course is very accessible to parents/ carers who would like to take photos and cheer the participants on from different locations around the course. Please be considerate to the people doing the event and do not obstruct the path if you are a supporter.
Please note this is a change from previous information:
