Le Race

Le Race

19 Sep 2020

This annual cycle race starts in the middle of Christchurch at 7.30am for the pre-race briefing and then it's all go at 8.00am. The finish line is in the centre of Akaroa, followed by prize giving on the Akaroa recreation ground. Make a weekend of it by booking into 1 of the many wonderful B&B's in Akaroa and enjoy a family weekend away. Be warned! This is not your ordinary 100 km race. Hugely popular across all abilities, amazing views and more hills than you can shake a pump at.

Covid-19 -19 – Le Race Postponed (as at March 16, 5:00pm): New Date is September 19th 2020 

> Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government decided today that mass-gatherings of more than 500 people cannot be held (excluding schools & workplaces).

> Le Race currently had more than 600 entries plus 100-plus crew, let alone participant supporters etc. So this announcement means that the event cannot go ahead this weekend.

> We intend to postpone, but because there has been no clear direction from government as to how long this restriction might be imposed we cannot give a firm date at this stage.

> The new date for Le Race will be announced as soon as we can  (working out cycling calendar now), but we also have to work through Council permissions and re-booking of key service providers, marshals etc.

> The government indicated there would be more detail surrounding these restrictions by the end of this week. We will continue updating as we know more.

 

Please stay safe and well and follow all Ministry of Health advice as it continues to evolve.
