This is a course we trialled a couple of times last year.  The course is a good length - has nice wide roads - requires minimal traffic management setup (which makes life A LOT easier for the people doing course setup and takedown) - requires only 2 marshals - has parking - has toilets - has a dedicated, off the road, bike path to the circuit from both Raumati South and Paekakariki - and has very easy access from the Expressway.  It's also got quite a bit of change in elevation - which will make it different from our usual Tuesday night events and add an extra dimension.

Click HERE to view the course.  If you are coming from Wellington - it's an easy exit at the MaKays Interchange past Paekakariki.

Emerald Glen

There are carparks and toilets available at the southern end of the course at Whareroa Farm (just off the roundabout).  Please park here and ride down to the start/finish.

The Format

The event is graded - with people of similar ability heading off together and only competing with each other.  This means that no matter what level you are there is a grade to suit.  There are as many events as there are grades (usually A, B , C and D)

The course is 4.3km long and will run as 8 laps for A and B grade and 6 laps for C and D grade.

Start time:  6:30

Registration: 5:45

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 events 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 join the club now you get membership right through to the end of 2019

There are a couple of ways of joining.  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.
