Minimum Age Entry Requirements

All potential entrants considering participation in any of the 3 distance options must be confident of being physically fit enough to be able to complete the distance (26km, 13km or 6.5km) within an off road terrain setting inside the event course cut-off times. In addition to this the following age restrictions are in place.

26KM EVENT
• In order to enter and run/walk the 26km Tussock Traverse you must be 16 years or older on event day.

13KM AND 6.5KM EVENTS
• In order to enter and run/walk the 13km event solo (without an entrant 16+ being required by the event to stay with you) you must be 13 years or older on event day.

• In order to enter and run/walk the 6.5km event solo (without an entrant 16+ being required by the event to stay with you) you must be 11 years or older on event day.

• If you are under 13 years and wish to enter the 13km, or are under 11 years and wish to enter the 6.5km event, entry is allowed providing the following:

o The younger entrant is physically fit enough to be able to complete the distance within an off road terrain setting inside the event course cut-off times under his/her own steam (push chairs/buggies are not suitable or allowed on the event course). We also want to see younger entrants really enjoying the outdoors at this event – not being dragged around for the adult’s enjoyment.
o An entrant 16 years + remains with this younger entrant throughout the event and is responsible for them. While there are marshals and medical staff on the event course this event is set in an ever changing outdoor environment where good decisions will need to be made by all entrants on the event course.

All enquiries regarding younger entrants can be directed to info@tussocktraverse.co.nz.
