|The course賽道訊息||A point to point run from Rotorua to Kawerau. The majority of the run is on singletrack trails through native bush or forestry roads with less than 5% being on a sealed public road. In the Tarawera Forest you will be on deserted forestry roads, some of it, alongside the river. This is a trail run – not a road race. 由Rotorua 到Kawerau間展開，此賽事多數賽道為原始灌木或林道的單徑賽道占多數，公路段少於5％。在Tarawera森林會有一段為荒林裡進行，有部份賽事更延著河川邊的山徑，記住，你正享受著山徑路跑的樂趣，而不是一般的公路競賽。Net downhill with a 357 metre (840 foot) elevation loss. The running surface is excellent with free-draining volcanic soils with some technical roots and rocks on the Okataina and Tarawera section of the course from Humphries Bay to The Outlet. More Info.
自Humhiries Bay到 The Outlet，淨下坡357公尺，此賽道排水性極佳因賽道為火山土壤區域且還有些為碎石路段，故不易泥濘。

SATURDAY 6 FEBRUARY 2016 2016年2月6日
Race Day 6am Race Start. 賽事於早晨六點開始
The race start will be very busy and crowded. To ensure we get underway on time, please aim to be at the start no later than 5.20am. There will be hot tea, coffee and espresso at the start. There will also be toilets and portaloos at the start.
Gates close to the Rotorua Redwoods at 11.30pm on race day.
IMPORTANT If you think you will be back in Rotorua after 11.30pm on Saturday evening, park your car outside the gates on Long Mile Road and walk (or hop a ride) to the start line (only 1km away). Please aim to assemble at the race start no later than 5.30am. The start area gets very busy after that time.
重要： 若選手預計會於當晚十一點半後回到Rotorua，請務必將你的車輛停放於大門口外的Long Mile Road，並走到起跑線（或搭便車，距離約一公里），請試著於早上五點半前到達會場，當日起跑點將會十分忙碌。
Parking will be tight. Essentially, the earlier you arrive, the closer you will park to the start line. Please park where directed on both sides of the road. There will be a 10-minute briefing before the race start. The race start is at the Redwoods Visitors Centre, Long Mile Road, Rotorua.
Sunrise is at 6:40am. The Redwood Grove is very dark prior to sunrise so having a headlamp is strongly recommended. We will have a volunteer pick up headlamps at the 5km point (at the water tower near Tarawera Road). You can ditch your named headlamp (and surplus clothing) with the volunteers and pick them up at the Kawerau finish.
日出大約在6:40. 起跑的紅木森林在天亮前將會十分黑暗，強烈建議隨身配帶頭燈，志工將會於五公里處保管選手的頭燈（約在Tarawera Road的水塔邊），請於頭燈上標記名字，將頭燈及多餘的衣物交給志工，並於 Kawerau領回。
Compulsory Gear: 必要裝備
In the week prior to the race and at registration, competitors will be advised, and again at the pre-race briefing, what compulsory clothing and equipment items they must carry (based on the expected weather conditions). If there is little risk of bad weather, the most likely Compulsory Gear list will be A. 在賽事前一週以及報到日及起跑前的簡報，主辦單位會提醒必備攜裝備及穿著的衣服（視當天氣候狀況而定），若天氣狀況理想，則無強制攜帶的裝備，此為A等級。
There are three compulsory gear levels: 必要裝備分類三種層級：
– A. No compulsory equipment A級： 無需任何強制性裝備
– B. Waterproof jacket B級： 防水夾克
– C. Base Layer Long Top Wool/Polypropylene, Base Layer Long Pants Wool/Polypropylene, Waterproof Jacket (seam-sealed), Thermal Hat (Buff accepted), Thermal Gloves.
C級：聚丙烯長袖襯衫，羊毛/聚丙烯長衣長褲內衣/ 防水夾克(備防水條)/保暖帽 (可使用BUFF頭巾)/ 保暖手套
INSPECTION OF COMPULSORY ITEMS: If compulsory items are required for the race, the Race Director may choose to randomly spot check a sample of competitor items on the morning of the event at the race start. At least one random inspection of one or more item(s) will be undertaken along the course for all competitors.
We strongly recommend you carry water between aid stations. Optionally (but recommended) you should carry any gels or other form of calories with you between aid stations.
We also strongly recommend you plan ahead and have all items in B and C available to bring to Rotorua.
Race Numbers You MUST have your race numbers facing the front and timing chips attached to your ankle when you line up at the start. This is essential. Race numbers must be visible because they are recorded throughout the day. If numbers are not visible, we may need to stop you to check your number. There will be a compulsory 1 minute penalty in the sin-bin (at random locations) for runners failing to display their race numbers.
Course Markings Only follow the fluoro pink/orange ribbons in the trees, and red arrows. There should be no other markings. Any turns should be obviously marked with these pink/orange ribbons and/or red arrows. The wrong way will be indicated with hazard or warning tape. Glowsticks at the start and near the end glowsticks, fluoro ribbons/fluoro cones and glow spray will help to mark the course from the Awaroa Aid Station to the Kawerau finish line.
|若走錯路徑將有可能進入危險區域，螢光棒將會使用於起跑路段，而從Awaroa Aid Station 一直到 Kawerau finish line將會使用緞帶|
Aid Stations The Aid Stations are very generously stocked with food – ‘world-famous’ Heather Bars, endurolytes, lollies, chips (chicken, salted and salt & vinegar flavours), pretzels, sandwiches (with peanut butter, jam, Nutella and honey) fruit (bananas, watermelon, oranges, apples), ice, water, Coke, Mountain Dew, ginger beer and HEED. The order of the Aid Station offerings will be: drinks in cups > food > fruit > drink containers to fill your bottles > Vaseline and sunblock etc. Hammer gels will be in your race packs – and will not be distributed to the Aid Stations. We have budgeted on three gels per athlete. If you plan on relying on gels, make sure to bring plenty for yourself – do not rely on the gels in your race pack.
Signs will be placed 200 metres before the aid station. Exit signs will indicate distance to the next aid station.
補給站： 擁有豐盛的補給食物－“世界知名亞瑟酒吧“、能量發泡錠、 軟糖、洋芋片（雞汁口味/鹹味/鹹醋口味）、椒鹽卷餅、三明治（口味:花生醬、果醬、巧克力榛果醬、以及蜂蜜口味）、水果(香蕉、西瓜、柳丁、蘋果)、冰塊、水、可樂、山露汽水、薑汁啤酒、以及能量飲品等。補給站食物的排序為：杯裝飲料>食物＞食料＞水果＞罐裝食料＞凡士林及防晒油，主辦單位將贈送三包能量果膠給每位選手，請確保攜帶足夠的數量，補給站200公尺會有標誌提示，同時會在補給站標示下一補給站距離。
Toilets There are six new toilets at the Redwoods Visitors Centre and there will be extra portaloos. There are also toilets at: Blue Lake Aid Station, Okareka Aid Station, Okataina Aid Station, Humphries Bay Aid Station, The Outlet Aid Station (over the bridge), Tarawera Falls (60km finish) and the finish line in Kawerau.
廁所：於紅木遊客中心有六間廁所並有流動廁所可供使用。在Blue Lake Aid lue Lake Aid Station, Okareka Aid Station, Okataina Aid Station, Humphries Bay Aid Station, The Outlet Aid Station (過橋後), Tarawera Falls (60公里賽事終點線)，以及100公里賽事終點皆有廁所
Etiquette and pooing / peeing You will be sharing these trails with hikers and trampers. Please make sure you move off the trail to allow these other users to pass by. When passing slower runners, please indicate that you’d like to pass by saying “passing on your left (or right)” when overtaking.
Sometimes you will need to poo or pee when you are far away from a toilet. When that happens, you should step well away from sight (25 metres) and very far from waterways. Bury any waste by digging a deep hole with the heel of your shoe. Completely bury all waste.
大小便： 在參與賽事途中若有需要大小便，請務必遠離賽道至少25公尺，並盡可能遠離水源地, 且掩埋排泄物於土壤深處。
Running extra (or less) distance If you have entered the 60km or 85km and you decide to run further, you must let the Aid Station volunteers at Tarawera Falls and Titoki respectively, know you are continuing on. To be fair, please pay the difference at the finish line (or Sunday morning) if you ran further. Comparing the entry form to the results – we’ll easily know who you are. If you entered the 100km or 85km and you complete the 85k or 60km instead, your result will not show as a DNF. Your results will be your place (and time) for that distance. If you drop at any point during the race, you must let the nearest Aid Station or a course marshal know that you have pulled out of the race.
申請改變賽程距離： 若在抵達60/85公里終點處臨時決定改變賽程距離，選手必須讓Tarawera Falls 及Titoki的志工人員知道你要繼續賽事，為求公平請於終點處或是星期六早上的頒獎典禮補繳不同賽時的報名費價差，根據不同的完賽時間，大會可輕易得辨認參賽的距離，若你參賽100公里或是85公里的賽事，但最後只完成85公里或60公里，成績不會表列未完賽(DNF)，你的參賽成績將會以你完賽距之成績表示。
Littering Anyone caught deliberately littering will be given the job of clearing gorse and blackberry by around Lake Okareka by hand wearing only jandals and shorts. You will be served warm orange cordial to keep you hydrated.
Withdrawing Any runner who is unable to finish the run must personally inform the nearest Aid Station captain of their decision to withdraw and make sure their race number is recorded. We will use forest radio or some other means to try and contact your crew. If you do not have a crew, we will do our best to transport you to where you need to go. Usually you won’t have to wait long but there is a chance you may have to wait several hours for a non-emergency lift back to Event HQ.
Drop Bags A support crew is certainly not necessary in the event. Drop bags are OPTIONAL for solo ultra runners and can contain your own goodies (gels, food, change of socks, shoes, shorts, bodyglide etc.). For solo ultra runners, at registration, you should put your filled and labelled drop bags and finish line bags in the pile for the correct Aid Station. These bags must be a soft, reasonable size – do not pack the kitchen sink. Leave your drop bags with us in the correct truck or van at race registration before 7pm Friday. Please do not use the drop bag service for any Aid Stations where your support crew will be definitely attending.
If you have a drop bag at an Aid Station you will be asked to move it from the ‘unused pile’ to the ‘used pile’ even if you did not use your drop bag. This allows us to transport your drop bags quickly back to the Kawerau finish line. This will help allow the drop bag tent to remain orderly for the benefit of runners yet to arrive. Drop bags must not contain any glass. All liquids must be secure.
Label your drop bags with your name and the correct Aid Station:
FSH Fisherman’s Bridge**
TAR Tarawera Falls*
FIN Finish line in Kawerau***
TITO Titoki Road**
|FSH Fisherman’s Bridge**|
|TAR Tarawera Falls*|
|FIN Finish line in Kawerau***|
|TITO Titoki Road**|
* 60km runners Pack a change of clothes, comfy shoes/jandals, towel etc. for when you finish at the Tarawera Falls. There are beautiful places in the river for a swim near the Tarawera Aid Station. In Kawerau there are hot pools and free hot showers, so bring a towel. Pack some money for hot food and drinks at the Kawerau finish line.
*60公里選手： 請準備更換衣物，鞋子或拖鞋，毛巾。於Tarawera終點站，可於Tarawera急求區附近的河邊游泳，於Kawerau 備有熱水淋浴使用，並攜帶金錢於Kawerau有熱食及食料可購買。
** 85/100km runners. If you think you’ll need a headlamp for the finish, you can put it in your Titoki, Awaroa or Fisherman’s Bridge drop bag. Or your crew can deliver a headlamp to you at the Titoki, Fisherman’s Bridge or River Road Aid Stations. Kawerau Finish Line
**85/100公里選手若估計完成賽事的時間，需要用到頭燈，可將頭燈存放在Titoki, Awaroa 或Fisherman’s Bridge的補給袋。或是你的補給團隊可將頭燈送至Titoki, Fisherman’s Bridge,River Road Ais Station, 或Kawera Finish Line
***85/100km runners. Pack a change of clothes, comfy shoes/jandals, towel etc. Excellent swimming in the river plus free Kawerau hot pools and free hot showers so bring a towel.

Aid Station Distances
|Aid Station||Km covered||Distance to next (km)||Distance from previous (km)||Cut-Off|
|Tikitapu (Blue Lake)||12.5||5.3||12.5|
|Tarawera Falls (60km finish)||60.6||9.5||5.4||5.20pm|
|Titoki||70.1||5.3km to Fishermans Bridge (85k course)
7.7 km to Awaroa (100k course)
|9.5||*5.50pm. This is for runners wishing to complete the 100km.|
|Awaroa (100km course only)||(77.8 & 82.7)||4.9km loop back to Awaroa. 8.1km to Fishermans Bridge||7.7 and 5.3|
|Fisherman’s Bridge||75.4 (90.8)||4.9||5.3 (8.1 from Awaroa)|
|River Road||80.3 (95.7)||5.0||4.9|
Cut-off times Cut-off and pace times are shown in the tables. These cut-off times will be “extremely generous” meaning you have ample time to walk tough sections, stop at Aid Stations, and still get through. We have no intention of pulling people off the course for going slow.
At the same time, we do not want to have runners in the forest at midnight with the possums. These cut-offs represent an average of just under 11 minutes per km pace. In other words, just over seven and a half hours for a marathon. The 5.20pm cut-off at the Tarawera Falls Aid Station does not apply for runners completing the 60km solo run. The cut-off times in 2015 are a more generous (by 50 minutes) than 2012.
關門時間: 此關門時間可說是十分寬容，這代表選手有充份的時間在艱難的賽段用走的，或是在補助站稍作停留，我們並無意給段班跑者給予壓力，但同時也不希望有跑者在半夜還在比賽，關門時間的標準是以每公里11分鐘的配速，相當於7個半小時完成馬拉松賽事，TARAWERA FALLS的關門時間為下午五點二十分，這時間遠比2012年的標誌還更寬容了五十分鐘。
Cut-off times reflect the deadlines for LEAVING the Aid Station. If you return to an Aid Station after the cut-off, you will be pulled from the run. The Aid Stations will strictly enforce the cut-off times: anyone leaving an Aid Station after the cut-off time will be disqualified. This rule is for the safety of all participants. IF YOU MISS THE CUT-OFF, YOU MUST STOP. Significant sanctions will apply to anyone breaking this rule.
If you do not make the Titoki 100km cut-off time, you will need to finish on the 85km course. You cannot complete the 100km.
關門時間影響離開護理站的時間, 護理站會嚴格執行關門時間, 若是你在關門時間後才回到護理站,你將禁止回到賽道上,並取消資格. 這規定是為了所有參賽者的安全. 若你錯過了關門時間, 就必須停止比賽. 若是100公里跑者錯過了在TITOKI的關門時間，那就僅只能完成85公里的賽事,並放棄完成100公里的賽事
Course changes from previous years
The 2015 course has a number of changes that will help you, and the other 1000 runners, get off the start line efficiently, make a few key locations safer, and make the most of some stunning alternative alignments to ensure you run at least the distance you’ve entered. The most significant change is over the first 5km of the course, where we have chosen wider, yet even more stunning, alternative trails to reduce congestion before the first section of single track. The detail of the 2015 course changes have been posted on the event Facebook page and website. Basically, if you follow the course markers, you can’t go wrong!

Podium Spots and Race Records
Runners who switch distances on race day and finish in the top 5 (men or women) for that distance will still be recorded for their time and place in that distance on the website.
However, for all media, prizegiving ceremony, place-getter medals, and official Tarawera Ultra communications, only those who entered that distance will be acknowledged as being in the top 5 per distance/gender.
Course records will be set by any runner who completes the distance in the fastest ever recorded time on race day. For example, it may be possible for an 85km or 100km entrant to break the 60km course record if they reach that Aid Station in the fastest ever time.
賽會最佳記錄會以最快成績完成此距離的跑者. (如: 有可能85公里/100公里跑者打破60公里賽事的記錄)
This is a running event, not a walk! Unless you are an exceptional walker (we have had one!) you cannot expect to walk the entire course and still finish before midnight. All runners will walk the course at times, especially the uphills. Runners will probably walk more later in the event as fatigue sets in.
這是個跑步賽事，不是用走的! 除非你是個優秀的步行者(曾有過這種選手!) 你並不能期待用走的且在午夜前完成此賽事，當然所有的選手都會有步行的時候，特別是在爬坡，也許會在疲倦時有更多時間用行走的。
Kawerau finish line food & drink The race will provide free drinks (a locally-brewed Croucher beer, ginger beer and other drinks) and fruit for each finisher (including 60km finishers that join us). Meals and drinks will be available to purchase so pack some money in your finish line bag for extra food and drinks. Hot food will be available until 10pm on race night – stay behind and cheer in the final runners to the finish of an epic day!
There are FREE Kawerau hot pools and hot showers at Maurie Kjar Pools in Kawerau. These are open and free to everyone (including the general public) before 8pm. After 8pm, the pools are booked to the Tarawera Ultra and you are still free to use them. You can only bring beer in to the pools after 8pm. There is a free spa pool and nice hot showers. The hot pools are opposite the Information Centre on Plunket Street, Kawerau.
大會於終點區Kaawerau的Maurie Kjar Pool備有免費飲料，及在八點以前可供免費熱水淋浴開放給所有參賽選手及一般民眾。而八點過後此SPA泳池將由大會所預訂下，選手依然可免費使用，但只能於晚間八點後在泳池飲用啤酒。泳池位於Plunket Street, Kawera(Information Centre 對面)。
Lost gear, start line headlamps and drop bags will be transported back to the Kawerau finish area and will be available throughout the day. Labelling or naming your gear is essential. Any unclaimed gear will be at prizegiving on Sunday morning. After that, all lost gear will be stored at 2 Pukehangi Road, Rotorua. We very, very strongly recommend that you claim all of your lost gear before leaving town.
起跑時所使用的頭燈以及補給袋將會運送至Kawerau終點線，並於當日開放領取。請務必在你個人用品上標記姓名。任何未被領取的裝備將於周日的般將典禮上開領招領，之後將會把這些裝備儲放在2 Pukehangi Road, Rotorua。我們強烈建議選手能於離開會場前就領回。
The guiding principles of this race are enshrined in the charter of the International Trail Running Association.The purpose of the performance rules for this event is to ensure the run’s integrity as a test of individual performance, providing equal conditions for all. The guiding principles are as simple as: play fair, be safe, and respect the land.
