2020 Motueka - Mapua 4 person relay

Information for the Motueka – Mapua Relay, 5th September 2020

This relay has 4 significantly different laps of different lengths and difficulty but in each one the scenery is stunning and the views out over the Tasman Bay area are magnificent.

Free entry & everyone and all abilities welcome.

While it is set out as a 4 person relay, the 26km course can be undertaken by 1,2 3 or 4 people. 

Registration is at 11:30 for the walking teams and 1:00 for the running teams, at the Saltwater Baths, Motueka. (Google maps here).

Everyone needs to register individually and scan the Covid QR code and each team will be given a Team Time Sheet to fill in.

Either come as a ready-made team, or come as you are and we'll place you in a team.

Runners, please arrive at 1:00pm. We only have 15 minutes to make up teams before the Race Briefing at 1:15pm. Bring a pen and be prepared to take your own running times. We will record your team’s overall time.

To assist travel arrangements, this year we suggest runners who have not got their own transport sorted for the relay, meet up at the Mapua Sprig & Fern at 12:30 and car pool from there to Motueka.

All competitors must attend the safety briefing, which will be at 11:45pm for the walkers and 1:15pm for the runners. This year the briefings will be held beside the Saltwater Baths. Then its a 400m walk to the start line.

Full details of the course will be available on the registration table.
Please note slight changes to the course and locations of the 3 changeovers from previous years.
There will be black & white copies of course details and a map of the course at registration, BUT we ask all of you to study the maps and print off your own colour copies from the links below:
