To enter, designated a team captain responsible for entering the team. The team captain must first create an EventPlus profile for themselves (or login if they have one already). This can be done ahead of entry release by clicking on the buttons below (coming soon). When entries open the team captain again clicks on the button below, login 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.

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 buttons 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
Add a new team member by emailing them your team code (Example: SW123456789) so they can create (or login to) their EventPlus profile and enter the team code to add themselves to the team. If replacing another member, the old team member must be deleted first to free up this email field and space for the new team member to join your 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 $20 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.
We are unable to transfer entries from one year to the next. We are unable to transfer entries from North/South Island and vice versa.

2021 Spirited Women’s Socks Sizing Chart
All the team members will receive a Spirited Women Socks as part of their entry fee. The Team Captain is the only person who can select sizes for the whole team (not team members). Choose the same size sock as your shoe size. If you have narrow feet or are on the border between sizes, you should go down a size. The sock should be a snug fit with no wrinkles.
|SIZE TO FIT||Small||Medium||Large|
|Shoe size (US)||5 – 7 US||7.5 – 10 US||10.5 – 12 US|
|Shoe size (EUR)||35 – 38.5 EUR||39 – 42.5 EUR||43 – 46.5 EUR|
|Shoe size (UK)||3 – 5.5 UK||6 – 8.5 UK||9 – 11.5 UK|
Note: Please carefully review the size chart before selecting sizes, and be aware that we won’t be able to offer any size exchanges at the event registration as this is an event exclusive production run. Please use the measurements in the sizing chart to ensure that you get the perfect fit for you and your teammates. Edits can be made up to midnight on Wednesday 30th September 2020 when all sizes need be confirmed.
