Race Update 4 - Kauri Dieback

February 02, 2019 at 8:59 PM

To help ensure that the impact of Kauri Dieback is minimised on the Peninsula, in conjunction with DOC, we will be implementing the following procedures during and before this years’ ARC Adventure Race.

  1. We ask that you clean all your gear before arriving on the Peninsula. In particular, the running and mountain biking shoes you will be using during the event, your mountain bikes, especially the tyres and your kayaks, paddles and PDF’s.
  2. Your gear will be checked when you register and there will be a cleaning station available. You will be asked to put your mountain bikes through our tyre cleaning system
  3. DOC will be delivering a short presentation on Kauri Dieback at the Race Briefing on Friday evening
  4. During the event there will be specific cleaning stations before and after the trek sections. There will be a compulsory stop to clean your shoes and penalties or possible disqualification will be imposed for teams that miss these.
