Kia ora tātou This is just a quick update in the lead up to Te Rotohoe ki Tarawera on Saturday.
After hearing that the road is closed between Napier and Taupō I'm not sure that our whanaunga from Heretaunga can get through. Ka aroha hoki!
Race schedule: The online pānui may have caused some confusion, as there were details from last year's Rotohoe hanging around in there!
So, just to clarify:
9 am Race 1: Women and Mixed 16 - 18 km race
Registrations close at 8.30 am, and waka checks must be completed before race brief at 8.45 am
11 am Race 2: Junior and Novice 10 km race
Registrations close at 10.30 am, and waka checks must be completed before race brief at 10.45 am
12.45 pm Race 3: Men 16 - 18 km
Registrations close at 12.15 pm, and waka checks must be completed before race brief at 12.30 pm
Weather forecast: Flat water conditions. Fine, but pretty cold. Very light southerlies 1 - 3 knots. Those of you coming from warmer climes, don't underestimate the Rotorua cold. And Tarawera can be even harsher!
BRING A CUP:
Please bring a reusable cup for soup after your race. We will have paper cups available, but appreciate your helping us to cut down on waste.
Getting to the venue:
We are awaiting word from council as to the state of the turf at Rangiuru Bay Reserve, as the rain has softened it up and it may not be suitable for vehicle parking. We may shift the parking to Stoney Point Reserve, which is at the next turnoff past Rangiuru Bay Road, off Spencer Road. Event signs will be up and we will have a parking marshall to point the way...
