LAKE ROTO KŌHATU
Adult teams starting from 12:30pm
How to ENTER
SUBMIT YOUR ESTIMATED RUN TIME
Each team is given a starting handicap based on the sum of their runner’s previously estimated times. This means you estimate the time it will take you to run 5km in advance.
Start times will be based on your total team estimated time and starters will go in different waves.
The theory is that if everybody runs to their handicap time they should finish together. We know people have good and bad runs but the race works best if you are realistic about your time – use your training timed runs. You might be first across the line but you will miss the thrill of ending with the crowd and the spirit of the event.
Anyone over or underestimating by a large amount will be very noticeable!
