Welcome back to Nga Manu, which was a fantastic new addition to our event calendar last year.

It's a roughly 2.3km course.  Nice wide roads and very very little traffic.  There are only 3 houses and the Nga Manu Nature Reserve (which will be closed when we are there). 

The course itself is different again from what we are used to - with lots of corners and accelerations that add a different dimension.  

The Format

The event is graded - with people of similar ability heading off together.  There is as many events as there are grades (usually A, B , C and D)

It is time + 2 laps.   Last year we ran 50 mins plus 2 laps for A, B and C grade with a shorter race for the D grade.  So the gun goes off - the A grade heads off - shortly after followed by the B grade and then the C grade.  After 50 mins - you will get a whistle that indicates 2 laps to go and then on the next lap a bell letting you know that there is one lap to go.   It's a very simple format.

Start time:  6:30

Registration: 6:00

Where:  Click HERE for a rough map of the circuit (the roads have changed in this area and these roads aren't marked on the map yet).   Head down Ngarara Road in Waikanae and follow the signs for Nga Manu Wildlife Reserve and you will find the course (it's signposted from the Waikanae exit of the Expressway for those from out of town)

It's $5 for Kapiti Members and $10 for non-members.   If you don't want to carry cash with you - we are more than happy that you pay online directly into our bank account.   You can pay for as many or as little races in one hit as you want - completely up to you.  Pay into 03-0732-0020082-00 and use your name and 'Event' as a reference so we can find you easily.  You still have to register - but tell them at the trailer that you have already paid and they will record that.

If you are going to pay by cash, can you please bring the right amount with you as we cannot keep up with the demand for change from 20's and 50's dispensed by ATMs.  For this reason, we prefer that people pay directly to the bank account.

If you would like to join the club - there are a couple of ways of doing it.  If you just want to enter the myriad of Kapiti Club events then it is just $55 (membership goes for a calendar year).  If you want to be part of the Kapiti events PLUS race regional and national events such as the Wellington Center Champs or National Age group Champs then you will need to join the club at the lower price of $45 and also take out a Cycling NZ Licence which is generally $65 for an Adult or $45 for a Junior.  Click HERE for more details of both membership types.
