Our HED Wheels Road Race will be signing on from 7:00am for all grades at the Elvina Walking Track Carpark. If you pre enter please ensure you arrive at a minimum 10 minutes before your race start.
If you haven’t raced before but are considering it – our guide to entering may be of some assistance.http://www.manlywarringahcc.org.au/news/racing-how-to-enter-and-what-to-expect-a-beginners-guide/
The start/finish line and presentation area is located at the Elvina Walking Track Car park on West Head Road.
We would request that you do not park in the Elvina Walking Track car park – this not only assists our marshalls when they head up there to set up for the finish, but also assists with our relations with the National Parks. This also gives riders more room to hang around in post race.

All clubs and riders welcome.
By pre registering, you are ensuring your entry and then on the day you will just turn up a minimum 10 minutes before race start, sign the sheet and grab a number. If a grade is advertised as sold out, that is exactly what it means – no spots will be available on the day.
If you use gel or energy wrappers, please put your empty wrappers in your pockets and take them home with you. The National Park is not a rubbish dump.
