The following event components are located at the Country Club:

Race administration and registration

All competitors must register at the Race Admin desks prior to your race. Also come and find us here if you have any issues or require further information.

Food, beverages and the event bar

The Country Club’s kitchens will be working overtime to keep everyone well fed over the entire event weekend with a range of healthy eat-in or eat-out options: sandwiches, salads, wraps and other healthy options at lunch time, a full menu with a range of hearty meals in the evening and snacks at any time.

There will also be a range of other food and drink vendors set up.

The Country Club’s bar will of course be open over race weekend and being just 30m from the finish line it will be the ideal location from which to enjoy the end of a good race – be it yours or someone else’s!

Kids’ entertainment

Kids will be kept busy (when they are not racing the kids race!) with the Climbtastic climbing wall – the tallest mobile climbing wall in the southern hemisphere and a bouncy castle on site at the Country Club all weekend.

Sponsors stands

There will be a small range of sponsor stands set up at the Country Club and we encourage competitors to come and check them out and say thank you for supporting the event.
