RACE IS CANCELLED !
Due to obvious weather we have been forced to cancel today's Crazyman event. Our safety crews not happy to go ahead. Electrical storm too risky and heavy rain has come earlier than forecast (there is flooding reported in Hutt Valley already). We could never put enough safety crew out there to cater for the increased risk. Due to 50+ volunteers needing to get on the course soon, we've needed to make the decision now.
More info to come soon.
But the race is cancelled.

... to Central NZ's Premier Multisport Event
Established in 1991, the Crazyman is one of NZ's longest running multisport events. Based around the icon outdoor elements of Wellington's Hutt City this 56k scenic tour showcases the hills, beaches, harbour and river that make our Capital the outdoor wonderland that it is.
Held annually in early December, the Crazyman attracts around 400 entrants. Participants enter as individuals or teams in either the full multisport format (13k Kayak, 28k Mountain Bike, 13k Trail Run) or as duathletes (mountain bike/run).
Past winners have included Coast to Coast legends Steve Gurney, Jill Westenra, Kristina Anglem, Gordon Walker, Emily Miazga, Dougal Allen, Jess Simson and legendary husband and wife duo Richard and Elina Ussher.
But first and foremost "The Crazyman" is a community event embracing all ages, abilities and backgrounds. In short, you'd be "crazy not to" contemplate the Crazyman... It's a "Hell of an event"!
