Online Entries to the 2022 Central Hawke’s Bay & Wanaka events are open !

Entry

To enter, designate a team captain responsible for entering the team. The team captain must first create an Event Plus profile for themselves (or login if they have one already). This can be done ahead of entry release by clicking on the button below. When entries open the team captain again clicks on the button below, logs to their EventPlus profile and registers for the team in the chosen event category & division. The team captain then enters in any known team member email addresses (if they have them). The team captain completes the remainder of personal questions and then must pay for the complete team entry fee by credit card to confirm their team registration. A team code will be sent to all listed teammates email addresses, so these teammates can each create profiles (or login if they have one already) and add themselves to the team before online entries close.

 

 

Click the button above to enter a team, add yourself to an already existing team, update your team information (including edits and deleting team members), make a donation, or check out some cool event merchandise specials on the Spirited Women online shop.

Looking for a team-mate or team?

If you require another team-mate or are looking to join a team, we regularly post on the event Facebook page leading up to the event, where you can register your interest for others to see, simply by adding a comment. We recommend you let others know a little about yourself or your team (fitness/skills/experience), North or South Island event and the length event you or your team are keen to do (short/medium or long course), so you locate a well-suited team or team-mate to your or your team’s goals. Then private message one another to communicate further. Don’t forget to delete your post or simply re-comment below your comment the word ‘Found’, after you have found a team or team-mate. Please don’t be shy… there every possibility you could strike up a lifelong friendship/s from the experience.

Team edits and deleting (non-Captain) team members

The person who registered the team (the ‘Team Captain’) will need to do this before the close of online entry two weeks prior to the event.

  • Click on the event entry link button above
  • Login to your EventPlus profile using your email and password
  • Click on your ‘short/medium/long course’ entry
  • Make any changes as required to your team entry (i.e., changing the team name or age division)
  • Delete any old team members
  • Click ‘Update’

Adding New Team Members

The team captain can add a new team member by emailing them the team’s team code (Example: SW123456789) so they can create (or login to) their EventPlus profile (accessed through the entry button above) and enter the team code to add themselves to the team. NOTE: If replacing another member, the captain must first delete the old team member to free up this email field and space for the new team member to join the team.

In the final two weeks before the event, teams will need to print out the ‘Late team member change and Waiver agreement’ form here, complete and bring it with them to the event registration.

Changing the team captain

If you need to change the team captain or have made an error in your entry which you cannot correct, please contact us.

Change team race category

If you wish to change the race category (short, medium, or long course) your team races, we can only effect this change for your team if there is available space. Category changes are subject to a $40 NZD admin fee in addition to any difference in entry fee (be it an increased sum or refund given). Please contact us by email to see if this can be done.
