School Charter Buses
Schools who organise their own charter buses please ensure your buses are parked on Inga Road.
This is the only place for charter buses to park at the finish line.
Important: if your school is using a charter bus, please get in contact with email@example.com to ensure you have the correct bus route plan. We will also inform you where to park on the day.
NB: In previous years, charter buses have been dropping participants off in the incorrect zone causing delays on Lake Road. Buses who do not follow this route will incur warnings which may affect parking for their future Shore to Shore charter buses.
Booking a 3 x 3m tent site for the finish of the race is a great way for your schools participants to get together and enjoy the after race activities. Many schools set up a sausage sizzle and picnic for their school.
Tents must be set up from 7am and all vehicles off the reserve by 8am. No pegs are to be embedded into the grass. Please supply your own sandbags.
Tent sites will be allocated on a first in first serve basis, with locations being finalised the week before the event. Ambassadors can book a tent when they register their school.
Any further questions please contact Beth from Harbour Sport on 09 415 4650 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Official Charity 2017
The Hand Up Fund has been created by Harbour Sport as a result of an initial partnership set up with Rotary Browns Bay.
Hand Up is aimed at supporting elite junior athletes that will benefit the most from a small financial hand up and support them on their pathway to senior national honours.
Our vision is to expand the fund to support more and more athletes each year. Through even the smallest of donations, you are helping us reach this goal and support our local young sportspeople.
