Updating your own details.
Update week starts on Thursday 1 December at 8am and finishes on Wednesday 7 Dec. at 7pm.  You must submit your updated details during that time to be included in race programme., start list, signage, race numbers etc. You cannot change from a solo ultra entry to a relay team or vice-versa.

You can submit:
1. Any change in distance. There is a $30 fee for each distance upgraded. 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 (if accepted from the waitlist).

Contact Paul at paul@taraweraultra.co.nz  with your update details. You must include your name in your email.

If you wish to change your email address – you can do so here.

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


– If the race is full, we will have a waitlist, it will be linked from this page.
– A select few athletes that either increase the diversity of the race or competitiveness will be added to the front of the waitlist. These include runners from countries with five or fewer athletes represented and/or athletes that have demonstrated outstanding results in similar trail ultramarathon races.
