    WELLINGTON ENDURO SERIES POINTS

    The Makara Enduro is part of the 2022 Wellington Enduro Series. Provided you're racing the Advanced Course, points from this race will contribute to your overall WES ranking.

    COVID-19 vaccine passports required for everyone age 12+

    Due to the Government's COVID-19 Protection Framework and its impact on outdoor events under the traffic light system, vaccine passports will be required for this event for everyone aged 12 and over.

    You can read more about the traffic light system and outdoor events here: https://covid19.govt.nz/alert-levels-and-updates/covid-19-protection/

    PARKING

    The Makara Peak carpark will be closed during the race. This is to keep everyone safe, particularly during registration and rider briefing. No surprisingly, a couple hundred bikes take up a lot of space.  

    The overflow carpark will be open but very limited. If parking in surrounding Karori, please be courteous to the residents. We’ve not had a complaint yet (that we’re aware of) and we’re keen to maintain that record. Ride to the event or carpool if possible.
