Each race will start with a 'bark off' with New Zealand's iconic huntaway dog. The shepherd will whistle and the dog/s will start barking. This is the start. You will then have 10 minutes to cross the start line.
The rolling race start is designed to allow a good spread of competitors right from the start of the race. Please position yourself according to your desired outcome - competitive at the front, casual bikers towards the back.
RIDER 1: The Mini Muster Relay Team:
You will be catching the bus to the start line with the other The Mini Muster SOLO competitors (please see above for times).
RIDER 2: The Mini Muster & The Muster Relay Teams:
The busses will start to leave the main Race Village in Lake Tekapo at 8:15am. The drive is approximately 40 minutes to "The Musterer's Rest" Aid Station. We ask that the more competitive teams ensure their Rider 2 is on the first bus.
RIDER 2: The Mini Muster & The Muster Relay Teams - RIDE BACK TO LAKE TEKAPO:
Rider 2 competitors who have finished their section of the course will be transported back to Lake Tekapo and the Finish Area via bus. We aim to have the first bus departing "The Musterer's Rest" at 11am and will then continue every 1 hour 20mins (or as required).
Please be patient while you wait for your bus back. There will be shelter, food, and hydration available while you wait. We suggest you bring extra snacks for yourself if you require more.
The Prize Giving is set so that most of the competitors have finished the event and everyone can come together and celebrate their achievements.
