Alpine Lodge Loop the Lake on this Saturday

We look forward to seeing all participants at Lake Rotoiti this Saturday morning.

Some reminders for you:

Please remember to bring your Registration Certificate (this was emailed out on Wednesday but we do have some spares available at the Registration desk on event morning if you don't have access to a printer).

Registration is at the Red Deer Lodge from 7.30am on Saturday morning (opposite the DOC Information Centre).

Emergency Medication
A reminder that you will need to carry any emergency medication with you at all times (this includes any medication for wasp / bee allergies).

Please be aware that no parking is permitted at the DOC Information Centre - there is plenty of parking available elsewhere. Please also note for any of your supporters etc, that no domestic animals are allowed inside the Nelson Lakes National Park - this includes lakeside.

Trailwalkers will start at 8.15am
Runners will start at 9.15am

The start is down by the lakefront (Kerr Bay). The finish is where the track ends (by the camping area).

An event briefing will be held approximately 15 minutes prior to each start down by the startline.

Compulsory Gear
A reminder that you need to wear or carry at all times:
* Windproof Jacket
* Survival Blanket
* Polypropylene/woollen or equivalent Top
* Polypropylene/woollen or equivalent Hat
* Polypropylene/woollen or equivalent Gloves
* Whistle

Remember also that there are no water stations on the course - you need to carry your own water supply.

There will be a gear check prior to start and you can also be asked to stop for a gear check en route. Failure to have all compuslory gear will result in immediate disqualification and withdrawal from the event (possibly incurring transport costs).

Please clean your shoes before entering the park to ensure no transfer of seeds and to help prevent the spread of didymo.

We would love to see photos of your journey and time at the Lake - please pop them here on our forum or over on our FB page, or if you're a tweeter follow Nelson Events Boy and Nelson Events Girl
And Supporters - want a challenge whilst you await your runner to do their loop? Check out the webcam lakeside, and see if you can get yourself on there ;)

See you soon!!!
