Because the Ultra 100k starts at 3am Saturday you will need to arrive in Wanaka by late afternoon on the Friday at the absolute latest. Briefing which you MUST attend is at 6pm at the Albert Town Tavern. We can register you and hand out your race pack after that if you can’t arrive earlier than 6pm.
For the Marathon – pre-race registration is from 9.45am and race briefing which you MUST attend is at 10.30am on the Saturday. It would be good to stay the night in Wanaka but not essential.
To get to the start of the race
For the Marathon we suggest you get the bus up (tick box as you go through the online registration) or have a friend drive you up to the snow farm (45min from Wanaka, 1hr 20mins from Queenstown).
If driving over from the south you can also drive to the snow farm in the morning then catch a bus back up after the event to collect your car. (Tick box in registration form)
The Ultra 100k starts and finishes at the Albert Town Tavern – you can safely leave your car there from 3am until your finish later in the day. Or have a friend drop you off and pick you up. there is also a taxi service in Wanaka.
