Please note: This year we have moved to a new registration platform “Active” which includes an 8% processing fee. Given this change, we have reduced the base entry price from 2019 so that the total 2020 price including the Active fee is only a 2% increase from last year, so there isn’t a significant impact to your wallet.

Active Fee is the total process fee imposed by The ACTIVE Network, LLC, or its applicable subsidiary, (collectively ACTIVE) including sums charged by ACTIVE as consideration for providing its software and services (including without limitation promotional and marketing services) to the activity organiser. The sums, as part of the total processing fee, are in addition to any actual costs incurred by ACTIVE from third-party providers for each transaction.

Refunds and Transfer Policy

If you need to withdraw you can choose to either refund your entry or transfer your entry to someone else, as per the transfer and refund policies below.

Requests for refunds must be notified in writing to the organisers – taraweraultra@ironman.com

  • Entry fee refunds requested up until midnight Friday 15 November 2019 will receive 50% of their entry fee.
  • Entry fee refunds requested from Saturday 16 November 2019 up until midnight Friday 27th December 2019 will receive 25% of their entry fee.

All additional purchases, such as transport, merchandise and race-week activities, are non-refundable.

 

Transfer Your Entry to a Different Distance

Transfers between race distances can be made online up until 5pm, Thursday 6 February 2020, or until the race distance is sold out.

  • A transfer fee of $35.00 will be charged for all transfers between distances.
  • Please be aware that you cannot transfer to a sold out event.
  • If you decide to upgrade your event to a longer distance and space is available, you will need to pay the difference in entry fees.
  • If you decide to downgrade your event to a shorter distance and space is available, unfortunately we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

If you would like to transfer between race distances prior to 5pm, Thursday 6 February 2020, please log in to your MyEvents Portal and select Change Event Category.

 

Transfer Your Entry to Someone Else

New for 2020! You asked we listened… We’ve now introduced the ability to transfer your entry to another runner, should your circumstances change and you’re no longer able to join us in 2020.

Participants can transfer their race entry to someone else up until 5pm, Thursday 6 February 2020. No transfers will be accepted after this date.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $35.00 will be charged to the withdrawing athlete.
  • It is not possible to transfer your entry to someone else to a different distance event (i.e. 102km to 50km).
  • All additional purchases, such as event merchandise and race-week activities, are non-transferrable.

If you would like to transfer your entry to someone else prior to 5pm, Thursday 6 February 2020, please log in to your MyEvents Portal and select Transfer Registration. You will be required to give the email address of the person you are transferring the entry to. The receiving athlete will then receive an email to complete the registration and will be required to pay for the entry at the current price. The original athlete is then refunded their entry fee, less the $35.00 transfer fee.

Note: It is not permitted to transfer your race entry to someone else other than through this process, including on Race Day. It is very important for health and safety reasons for us to know the correct identity of every athlete on course, and accordingly it is strictly prohibited to race under another person’s race bib. Any athletes caught doing this will be disqualified and may be prevented from entering future events.

 

Email taraweraultra@ironman.com should you have any questions.

 

Travel or Running Groups

We expect the 2020 Tarawera Ultramarathon demand for entries to be high. To ensure your group doesn’t miss out, travel companies and running groups can pre-purchase group allotments. The minimum group allotment is 10 entries. You can also pre-purchase event bus and ferry transport.

We will invoice you for the requested group number and payment is required 30 days from invoice date. Once payment is made we will provide instructions on your group entry process. Your participants will be required to complete their own entry into the system using a unique code which we will issue you with and to ensure they each can sign and acknowledge the athlete waiver.
