 Results and Prize Giving

 As with most NZ Championships events will we endeavour to have results available through the Live Results App and through the Athletics NZ website. Obviously technological issues with this can occur. We will post all results on the results board at the start finish are as soon as possible.

 At this stage we are planning that all medal ceremonies will occur at a brief prizegiving in the Masterton Senior Citizens Hall directly behind the finish line. This will occur as soon as possible after the conclusion of the Senior race. If any teams have pressing timeframes and need to leave earlier please let us know.

 Athlete facilities

The Masterton Miniature Rifle Club has been booked for centres and individual athletes to store gear and clothing.  We will endeavour to put some screens up for teams so that you can keep your gear safe and secure.  It will be up to teams to ensure any gear stored in your area is looked after.  There are toilet facilities in this complex, and depending on entries, we may put some portaloos outside this complex.  There will also be toilets in the senior citizens hall.  Both facilities can be accessed from Cole Street, Masterton.

 If you are travelling to Masterton alone we can arrange somewhere to store essential gear for you, head to the main information desk at the start/finish line for this.

 Lap Scorers

If any teams have people travelling with them who can act as Lap Scorers for all or part of the Competition this would be much appreciated. Please let me know in advance if you have any supporters who can help in this role.

 Race Pack Collection

Will be available from 5pm – 7pm on Friday 2 September from the Masterton Senior Citizens Hall (marked Prize Giving on the map below) , or from 7:30am on race day from the Start/Finish area outside Masterton Town Hall.
