As Twalk is approaching, make sure you have referred to the information and rules pages and are sourcing the right clothing and equipment for the event! (We can’t reinforce this enough!) – that means NO JEANS OR COTTON!!
Volunteers wanted! We need people to set up the legs the 11th of May ( no competitors) send me a message in facebook (Maxime Savoie) I will add you on the invitations list
Volunteers wanted! We need to make a lot of food for a lot of hungry people. Can you help?
Most of the kitchen crew will head out from UC to the mystery location on Friday evening to unpack the kitchen equipment and set up. On Saturday morning we will start cooking, and then continue cooking in shifts (sleep is encouraged) for twenty-four hours. You can look forward to making (and eating!) soup, lasagne, big brekky, and other delights. There will be hundreds of muffins. There may be an opportunity for some crew to participate in one of the legs too. Sunday afternoon means clean-up and then the awards ceremony. We usually get back to Christchurch around dinnertime on Sunday.
If you can’t commit to the whole weekend, we would still love to hear from you — every hand helps! if interested contact Amy Martin and Caleb Martin
We have a Facebook event page which we add a few notices from time to time, so keep an eye on that –
Additionally, we will have an compulsory event information night coming up so keep watch for details
