Updating your own details
You can update your details by emailing Sarah at sarah@taraweraultra.co.nz before 5pm Wednesday 25  January 2017. You cannot change from a solo ultra entry to a relay team or vice-versa.

You can submit:
1. Any change in distance. If you would like to upgrade your distance, you will need to pay the difference between the amount you had paid when you signed up and the price for the new distance. No fee for a downgrade.
2. Change the name of a relay team member. There is no fee for this. Note: changing all members of a relay team is considered a new entry – and will require an entirely new entry into the race.

Contact Sarah at sarah@taraweraultra.co.nz with your updated details. You must include your full name in your email.

You can update your own details at the registration desk on Friday before race day. A $30 admin fee applies for any change.
