  • The start:  The start is a massed start with all categories starting together.  (Just outside the Captain Cook museum)
  • The finish:  The finish of your team’s race is when the fourth runner of the team (D) crosses the finish line.
  • Change over area:  The baton exchange must take place within the 7 metre change over area just after the finish line.  Unless you are the next baton receiver please stay clear of the changeover area.
  • The public:  The Park is open to the public so all competitors are asked to take care and respect other park users.
