Saturday 24 September, jump on your bike, walk, skateboard, rollerblade or push a pram and take on the Renewable Race (No actual racing required, coffee breaks encouraged).
What's the "Renewable Race"?
It's 2 hours where "people-powered" movement will take over the town (in an entirely civilised and legal fashion). You'll head out on bike, foot, board or blade to visit race checkpoints offering up free or very low cost activities from learning to rollerblade, screen-printing a recycled t-shirt, to a hands-on community garden tour.
How can you join the Race?
1. Find your nearest starting point. The Renewable Race starts in a suburb near you. Check the Race Map below to find your nearest starting point. It doesn’t matter where you start, all groups will travel into Waitangi Park for a top secret launch at 1.30pm, and then head out around the central city from there.

On 24 Sept, get to you starting point by the advertised time (starting times vary by location, click on your route on the map to see your starting time), so that you make it to Waitangi Park by 1.30pm for the top secret launch.
4. Take over the town.
Your groups' got 2 hours, so go at it, enjoy our line up of superb checkpoints. (You won't make them all, so pick your favs and plan your optimal route.)
5. Post-party and Prize-giving?
That's right, 4.30-6.30 at Meow on Edwards St. Music, prizes and food and drink available to buy.
The Renewable Race is open to all ages, so bring everyone along...literally. We need you AND everyone you know to come along, so we really make an impression on the streets and show leaders from NZ to the UN the massive level of public support for moving beyond fossil fuels!
Take a moment now to email your friends, family, and workmates to ask them to join you.
