Athlete Check-In

You must attend Athlete Check-in to collect your race number & official gear bag. Please remember to bring a copy of your registration confirmation email and photo ID with you. No race bibs will be sent out, however someone else can collect your race pack on your behalf.

To ensure a smooth check-in process, we ask athletes to pre-book their check-in time online via their My Events Portal. Please note you do not need to arrive at the start time, rather you can come anytime within the 30min time slot. If you arrive outside of your allocated time slot, you will still be able to check-in. 

After Check-in you will also get the opportunity to peruse our Sports Expo, a major feature of your event weekend, and will include a large ASICS footwear and fashion selection and other sports and health exhibitors. Everyone is welcome!

The expo will also feature our friendly Info Desk ambassadors, here to help with comprehensive race day information, course maps, shuttle bus timetables and road closures.

Location: The Cloud, Queens Wharf, 89 Quay Street, Auckland

Opening Hours: 
Friday 28 October, 8:00am - 7:00pm
Saturday 29 October, 8:00am - 5:00pm

Race Day Check

  • Your race number (and pins to attach it)
  • Your transport tickets if you have booked on the event ferry or bus shuttle services
  • Face covering if travelling on the event ferry or bus shuttle services
  • Official Gear bag for bag drop with bag tag on it
  • Weather appropriate clothing, plus sunscreen and cap

There will be no replacement numbers or timing chips available at the race start areas. Please ensure you have completed the back of your race number with your name, any medical conditions and a contact name and phone number (other than your own) in case of emergency.

Please pin your race number to the front of your t-shirt or running vest and make sure it is clearly visible. You must not use someone else’s number, nor let someone else use yours. Marshals will remove you from the race before you cross the finish line.

Your race number carries your disposable timing chip which is your unique timing device for the race. You must wear your race number to be classified as a starter and a finisher of the race and have your time recorded. Timing chips do not need to be returned.
