Hello to all those who can proudly say they completed the first ever Contact Epic!! It sure was a fantastic day and one which lead to a lot of pride and achievement (as well as the odd sore part!).


Contact Energy have powered up their support for the 2009 event. Next year they not only want to support more local community groups and winners but also each of you as well! They are providing every competitor with a free 10 minute massage at the end of the race as well as a free commemorative photo of each competitor somewhere along this picturesque journey.

We wish to again thank you for your support in the inaugural year by informing you first of the opening of entries.

You have one week to enter on line before we begin to advertise via our database and the local media.

Entering before the end of August will save you money as well.

To access the discount entitlement all you need to do is enter nzsultimate if you wish to enter the Epic or ultimate if you wish to enter the Classic into the discount code box on the entry page.

Any students who completed the 2008 event are also eligible for entry into the open leg of the Epic and therefore LMS kitty.

You are also eligible for the free entries offered again by Taff and Penny Cochrane to the first 10 local high school entrants if you are still at school.

To receive the free entry all you need to do is be one of the first 10 students to type focstudent into the discount code box. As there is no parental permission section in the open men’s please just print off the entry form and post in with parental permission noted, and your school, on the bottom as well as filling in the online form.
