Following the recent Government announcement that shifted all of New Zealand to 'Red' in the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Golden Homes Le Race 2022, due to take place on Saturday 19th March.

We have gone back and forward and tried to make it work but given the uncertainty at this time, plus the added complications and risks that come with Omicron we feel it is in the best interest for all involved to cancel.

We are absolutely gutted to have to make this call after all the hard work and training people have put in, but the health of our crew and event participants (and their supporters) comes above all else.

Thank you for your understanding. All those who have already entered Golden Homes Le Race 2022 will have two options - if you take no action, your entry will automatically be rolled over to the 2023 event; otherwise email before 15th February to receive a refund (minus $25 admin fee). Please be patient as we work through the process and timing of refunds.

Fingers crossed for Saturday 18th March 2023 huh?!

Government Covid-19 Policy

New Zealand has recently moved into a new Covid-19 Protection Framework that will greatly reduce the potential cancellation of large-scale events. We have no choice but to adopt these legally mandated controls.

Under the new "Traffic Light" system, events of any size can legally operate provided:

  1. The region in which the event takes place is under "Red" control (only events of less than 100 people can operate). The team at Golden Home Le Race  is currently reviewing the situation and will provide an update as soon as possible. 
  2. All attendees older than 12years 3months (participants, crew, sponsors, supporters, spectators etc) have received a full Covid-19 Vaccination and can show their valid Vaccine Pass (events are still open to attendees under 12years 3months, but they are not yet required to be vaccinated)
