Rules:
* General
1. Please note that the event is a Smoke Free and Dog Free event. Please respect these requirements.
2. Race Numbers are to be worn on the right shoulder of the shirt and the stick-on number on the front of the helmet so they are visible to timing staff and announcer.
3. It is the responsibility of the competitors to know the course and complete it correctly although it will be clearly marked.
4. Marshals will be positioned to monitor safety and directions at key positions on the course only.
5. Start lists, maps and programme will be on display from 8.00am at registration. Maps and programme will be available from www.redevents.co.nz.
6. Parking is limited, please follow directions and signage and don’t take any more space than absolutely required.

* Bike Specific Rules
1. All cyclists must follow the mapped and designated course.
2. Bikes must be ‘road worthy’ and the organisers reserve the right to withdraw teams deemed to have unsafe equipment (no refund or transfer will be provided in this instance).
3. The course fast for experienced riders and moderately difficult for younger and less experienced riders. There are no large hills or highly technical sections although if it is wet it will become muddy and slippery in sections – which most riders enjoy!
4. Cyclists must have their helmet on their head and buckled at all times that they are riding their bike regardless of whether they are racing or warming up.

Please note that Cambridge Middle School will not be sending a staff member to this event. We will try to organise a Team Manager and transport for the riders.
