Our Recommendation

We recommend you opt for our shuttle services BEFORE the challenge, where you park your car at your finish line & get our shuttle to your start. This way your car is ready & waiting for you when you finish. Our shuttles from the finish back to the start can have a wait at times – especially during the night and early morning. Or arrange to be dropped off & picked up by a supporter.

parking

Parking is available at the main venues. If you’re not doing the full Challenge (100 km) – check that our optional Shuttle Services also work for you. If parking at your finish, you will need to book a transfer to your start venue.
