    Really keen to enter this but cant get into the registration site so could you please add me to the growing list!
    is there a time limit on the event – i plan to run walk the track? Cheers in anticiptation of your reply

  2. Hello Megan
    Your name has been added. The QC pass lasts for 4 days and there is no official cut-off time. Cut-off times are often used in official events as a safety measure. This is NOT an official event (its more of a secret covert infiltration of Ship Cove under the cover of darkness by a small group of runners). There now appears to be quite a few runners, it might not be dark and websites are perhaps not a good way of keeping things secret!
    For personal safety reasons it would not be sensible to run on your own with dim light.
    It is relatively easy to arrange accommodation somewhere along the track and finish the run on the next day (Saturday). I certainly plan on walking / running.

    cheers Martyn for the info – nice it is not an official event and I really like the stealth mode of infiltration !! I also have a colleague who wants to undertake his first ultra – please add Sam Richardson to the list. I really enjoy running/walking at night and will probably continue through the night – I am a big girl now ha ha!!

  4. Big girls have been know to have the occasional accident especially at night and remember there won’t be any St Johns paramedics jumping out from the Trees to help you!

    Hi Martyn,

    I havent done an ultra before and was only going to do the 50km option so just checking il do that in a day then just organise water pick up from there?

    • No problem. Also Anakiwa, Te Mahia Saddle, Torea Saddle and Keenepura Saddle are accessible by road. Stage 3 finishes near Torea Saddle. Will you be making your way to the finish at Anakiwa or back to Picton?
      “only going to do the 50km option” perhaps a slight contradiction?

        Hi Martyn,

        Thank you for your reply. Was hoping to get back to picton that day. Excuse my lack of knowledge is Torea Bay far from the finish of the 50km option? Could i get a water taxi back from Torea Bay?

    Contact the NO ROAD INN is only by email as we are closed until September so cannot answer the phone.
    The No Road Inn is the new Lodge in Endeavour inlet with hot baths in all guest rooms unlimited hot water and an outdoor hot tub. A necessity for those weary bodys.

    Is anybody catching a water taxi from Anakiwa to the start that I can share? Happy to share costs.
