Save the date: 6th and 7th November 2020

Darryl, Bev & Brendan Back have confirmed they will be the major sponsors again in 2020 and we are once again truly grateful for all their amazing support.


When we opened the website for entries we were at Covid19 Level 1 and since then we have moved to Covid19 Level 2. We still want to stage the event and have put in place some extra processes around health & safety in line with Government recommendations. As long as we are back in Level 1 the event will go ahead, if we are at Level 2 and cannot hold the event, we will refund the entry money less a small admin fee of $20.00 per team or $15.00 per solo entry.

Well done to everyone who took part in last year's event and thanks for entering. Thanks also to all the leg sponsors, transition people, team managers, drivers, helpers and all the fabulous people who make this event what it is. We are looking forward to having another amazing weekend in the Naki with fantastic weather, a huge field and a heap of fun.

Online entries open

Due to the low number of entries in the last 2-3 years we no longer have a walking category, however, we have added a Female Composite & Running option.
