There, individuals either turn and make their way back or hand the reins over to their teammate for those entered in the relay. All distances finish under the canopy of Pohutukawa trees at Sun to Surf event village at Mahy Reserve, with post-race entertainment including live music, craft food, and beverage stalls, and prize-giving.
