About the Harcourts Cooper & Co Albany Lakes Summer Series

This is the One!

Welcome to the home of the Harcourts Cooper & Co Albany Lakes Summer Series – one of the North Shore’s best loved summer events, recognised by the Upper Harbour Board of Auckland Council as an iconic event for the district. “The Lakes” is heading into it’s ninth season in 2019 … where did the years go?

Event base is stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park, a beautiful and tranquil oassis in the heart of Albany’s bustling retail sector. Entrance to the park is directly opposite the main plaza of Westfield Albany. The entrance is the perfect spot to view the two water catchment lakes, bisected by the centrepiece of the park, the Art Bridge. This is the starting line for the 5k and 10km events which set off at 8am sharp on three summer Sundays.

Those in the 5k cover one lap of the main course and if 10k is your poison, you get to do it all again on the second lap. If you are new to Albany Lakes, you are in for a treat. As the event has grown – and Albany around us has changed beyond all recognition – we have been able to secure road closures so that three-quarters of each lap has been reserver for our exclusive enjoyment. There is nothing quite like running up the centre of a two lane arterial highway to give you that “big event” feel. We are grateful to Auckland Council and local residents for their support. The course is a figure of eight which takes in a full lap around the North Harbour Stadium complex, before heading up towards the bus station and the final dash down Civic Crescent to the park.

With the adults taken care of, the kids take over for one of the biggest kids’ races in New Zealand. Well over two hundred future-Olympians rev up their engines from 9:30am to take on two laps of the 1km loop. The noise and excitement as the kids pass through the venue after the first lap is something to behold. Think Tour de France meets All Blacks victory!

Once the hard work is taken care of, settle on the grass slopes in front of the main stage for some of the best spot prizes – thanks to our wonderful sponsors – that you will find anywhere.

The first two events in the series are the entree, but the Grand Finale is the main course! Every finisher in the Grand Finale receive a specially minted commemorative finisher medal. Wear it with pride, you earned it! The extended prize giving at the finale includes merit awards for our overall series champions and our unique “Lakes Legend” inductees. Do you have what it takes to complete a quest over four years in the making? Finish all three events in five distinct seasons and you too will be welcomed on stage to receive your beautiful glass Lakes Legend trophy and achieve immortality on the albany lakes event web site!

Auckland summer fun and fitness await you at the Harcourts Cooper & Co Albany Lakes Summer Series. C’ya there!

Event T-shirt

All Series Pass entrants into the 2018 Albany Lakes will receive a fantastic dry fit tee to mark their participation. The t-shirt for this year features our race logo with title sponsor Harcourts Cooper & Co. as well as a the race name down each side. A great shirt for running in, you’re sure to get more than a few envious stares at the gym. Your t-shirt will be included in your race pack along with your bib and timing chip. You don’t have to wear it on race day … but loads of people do!

Important! All of our t-shirts are produced months in advance of the event and quantities and sizes are strictly limited. Please register early to secure your chosen size – once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Unisex

Small Medium Large X-Large 2X-Large
Chest (cm) 50 53 56 60 64
Length (cm) 74 76 78 80 82

Womens

Important! Compare the chest measurement with a favourite t-shirt to be sure of your sizing. Our measurements are taken with the t-shirt laid on a flat surfaces. The length measurement is taken from the top of the neckline to the bottom of the shirt. The Chest measurement is taken from armpit to armpit.

Race Number

It is a requirement of your participation in the event that you wear your race number on the front of your shirt at all times whilst taking part. Your number should be secured to your shirt by a safety pin in each corner (if you don’t have any, come to the Registration desk on race morning). Your electronic timing tag is attached to the back of your race number so be careful not to crease, crush or puncture it.

Important! Series Pass entrants must keep their race number for all three events. Don’t throw it away – replacements cost $10!

Pimp Your Bib!
When you register, you will have the opportunity to select a nickname to print on your race number. Feel free to be creative – but please keep it clean folks! If you don’t select a nickname, your first name will be printed instead. If you prefer to fly under the radar – or you want to get creative with a sharpie – just put a full stop in the nickname field and we will leave it blank.

Important! Race numbers are printed in two batches. The first batch is sent to print approximately 28 days prior to the event and will include everyone registered in the event at that time. The second batch is sent to print 3-4 days before the event and includes everyone registered up to that time. Note that once your race number has been printed, it is no longer possible to change the printing. If you transfer your entry to another person and your race number has already been printed, your name will still appear on there.

Important! Please don’t lose your race number. Replacement numbers are $10.

Timing Tag

When you receive your race number, your electronic timing tag will be attached to the back. We are using disposable stick-on timing tags this year. We are sure you will appreciate the convenience of not having to attach a plastic tag to your shoes and then return it at the finish. All you have to remember is to secure your race number to the front of your shirt and you’re all set. Try to avoid holding your arm in front of the number as you cross the finish line (e.g. to turn off your watch) as this can sometimes affect the tag reading. Just wait until a few steps after the timing mat.

Important! There is no need to return your timing tag.

Important! Keep your race number with you when you finish as we will use it to register you in the prize draw for the Awards Ceremony – see below.

Finisher Medal

Every athlete that makes it  to the finish line of the Grand Finale will receive two things; a huge cheer… and one of our stunning finisher medals!

As a reward for our most loyal, most tenacious and most consistent runners and walkers, each year Running Events induct a new class into the Albany Lakes Summer Series Lakes Legends group.

Qualification: Everyone who records a finish time in all three events in the same Albany Lakes season scores one Lakes Legend point. When you have five points – or five 100% completed seasons (they do not need to be sequential) – you will be inducted into the hallowed halls of the Lakes Legends.

This is not an award that only the elite or naturally gifted can achieve. This is a goal that is truly open to all. It merely requires the dogged determination, tenacity – and good fortune – to be able to consistently finish race after race despite illness, injury, scheduling conflicts, holidays, car breakdowns, sleep-ins and any other challenge that life may throw at you.

On the day you qualify, we will call you and your fellow legends up onto the stage at our special induction ceremony. As your reward for reaching this formidable goal, each Legend is awarded their own commemorative glass trophy and individual legend number. It is a suitable mark for a laudable achievement and your place in this bastion of greatness will be duly recorded below for all to see and admire in perpetuity!

See below under “Past Events” for a full list of the current Lakes Legends and our next prospective intake.

Road Closures

To ensure the safe operation of the Albany Lakes Summer Series event, road closures are in place around the north end of the course from 7:30am – 10am on the morning of the event. Running Events – and the participants themselves – are indebted to local residents and customers for their patience, understanding and support  of the event and the safety of all concerned.

Below you will find a handy reference guide to the road closures and you can also download and print the PDF to post in your home or workplace so that as many people as possible are aware of the arrangements.

Roads affected:

  • Appian Way
  • Corban Avenue
  • Davies Drive
  • Don McKinnon Drive
  • QBE Stadium, Gate C Access Road
  • Munroe Lane
  • Stadium Drive
  • Warnboet Lane
PDF ROAD CLOSURE MAP

Parking

There is limited parking available on Civic Crescent and further street parking over towards the bus station. The most convenient and plentiful parking, however, it available within Westfield Albany mall, which is right across the road from the race venue. For the best parking, follow the signs for Event Cinema or Farmers and you’ll have a 2-minute walk to the race venue.

Important! Westfield Albany mall has parking zones which are rigorously enforced. Taking part in the event does not absolve you of the need to park appropriately. When you arrive, look out for FOUR HOUR parking spots. This will give you ample time to enjoy the event and even take in some shopping before returning to your car. If you park in a one hour spot you are very, very likely to receive a parking ticket.

Spot Prizes & Merit Awards

Each event in the series will conclude with a prize ceremony where we will give away thousands of dollars of spot prizes, thanks to our wonderful sponsors. The Grand Finale will also include an Awards Ceremony where we will acknowledge some of the excellent performances across the series, as well as crowning the latest group of Lakes Legends. See the Race Day Schedule for times.

Spot Prizes

We have many wonderful spot prizes to give away including vouchers for Brooks shoes and  Garmin Forerunner GPS sports watches. The grand prize is a big screen TV. Remember – you must be present at the prize giving to claim your prize. Only those who scan their timing tags at the spot prize timing point will be eligible to win a prize. The prize draw timing point will be activated approximately 15-20 minutes before the ceremony – listen out for announcements. All you have to do is walk across the timing mat with your race number and you will be registered in the draw. Easy as!

Important! In the event of inclement weather, we may elect to cancel the Awards Ceremony. Listen out for announcements on the PA or check out our Facebook page. If this does happen, all prize winners will be announced on our Facebook page and prizes will be couriered out to them.

Merit Awards

Beautiful glass trophies will be awarded to:

  • Top 3 men and women overall in the following series …
    • 10K Run Series
    • 10K Walk Series
    • 5K Run Series
    • 5K Walk Series
  • Top 3 boys and girls in the 2K Dash Series for …
    • Ages 7 & Under
    • Ages 8 & Over
  • Top finisher in each age division for ….
    • 10K Run Series
    • 5K Run Series

Important! There are no merit prizes for individual races. All merit prizes are based on point accumulated across the whole series.

Series Points – How Are They Calculated?

Points are awarded to every finisher in each race in the series. Even if you entered on a single race ticket, you will still receive series points if you finish. Points are based on the inverse of your placing (which, in turn, is based on your NET TIME – see above). So, if there are 50 male finishers in the 10km run then the first place finisher will receive 50 points, 10th place will receive 40 points and last place will receive 1 point. Our Series Challenge calculates points by gender and by age division so you can chart your progress throughout the series amongst your gender group and your age group.

Important!

  1. In order to calculate your series points, we match your results based on your name, gender and date of birth. If you enter each event as a single race entrant, you must be careful to ensure these details are the same for each entry or you may miss out. We are not responsible for errors in your data entry.
  2. In the case of a tie for any of the major merit prizes, the head-to-head record between those people will be used to separate them. If the tie still cannot be broken, the person with the fastest recorded time throughout the series will be deemed the winner.

Pacers

Thanks to the good guys at Metro Run and the Auckland YMCA club, we will have pacers available to help you reach you race goals. Our pacers will be wearing a black Run More tshirt or singlet and a hydration pack with their target time flag attached. Look out for the coloured flags during the pre-race safety briefing or at the finish line. When you find them – stick to them like glue! Right to the finish line!

Target Time (for 10km) Colour
40 mins White
45 mins Green
50 mins Blue
55 mins Red
60 mins Yellow

Information For Walkers

Running Events welcome walkers in all of our events, irrespective of the distance. Walkers routinely make up around 15-20% of the total field. We take the needs of our walkers seriously and have made changes to how our events operate to allow walkers to be appropriately recognised and accommodated. The notes here will help you, as a walker, to get the most from the event and help familiarise you with our setup for walkers.

Important! In the spirit of fair competition, we ask that all competitors adhere strictly to the rules. Competitive Walkers must not run or jog at any time during the event and must maintain contact with the ground at all times.

Hybrid Walk/Run or Competitive Walk?
When registering for a race distance which includes a competitive walk prize, you will be prompted to identify yourself as Runner, Hybrid Run/Walk or Competitive Walker. If you plan to walk most of the way but want to have the option to jog or run at any point, you should select the hybrid option. If you intend to walk throughout the event and want to measure yourself against other walkers, you should choose the Competitive Walk option.

Important! Hybrid run/walk competitors should start on the same start horn as the runners. For the 21K and 10K distances, Competitive Walk participants should start on the dedicated walkers start which will be three minutes after the main field.

Are There Prizes?
Please see the Merit Awards section for details of prizes. To be eligible for awards, walkers must enter in the Competitive Walk category, start on the Competitive Walk start signal and must only walk during the event.

How Is the Walking Competition Judged?
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide walking judges for our events. Therefore, we rely upon the integrity of those taking part to adhere to the rules of the walking competition and not run or jog at any time. In our experience over the years, we have found that the most common error in the walking competition is where people register as a competitive walker but decide to run on race day. We have worked around this issue by having a dedicated race start for walkers wherever there are Competitive Walk merit prizes at stake.

Important! We do not make judgement calls on disqualifications based on reports from other competitors. Unless advised otherwise by the competitor in question, we trust the integrity of our competitive walkers. In all cases, the Race Director’s decision shall be final.

Event Safety

It is compulsory for all participants to attend, listen to and heed the advice of the safety briefing. Above all else, however, please understand that no roads are closed during the event. You have sole responsibility for your own safety. Do not leave any pavement, cross any road, pass any driveway unless you deem it is safe for you to do so.

Please remind your own spectators that they should not attempt to accompany you in vehicles, bikes or otherwise. They must follow the normal rules of the road to reach vantage points.

Important! A copy of the approved Health & Safety plan is available from Running Events on request.

Course Safety

Remember that other a very small area near the start and finish of the event, all roads are open to the public at all times. Stick to the pavement where one exists and do not cross any intersection unless you have determined to your own satisfaction that it is safe to do so.

Please remember the golden rule … Always give way to vehicles. No matter who has right of way, vehicles always win.

Course & Venue Maps

Know where you’re going … then train to get there. Maps for all race distances and the event venue.

5K & 10K Run & Walk

The Art Bridge which bisects the upper and lower lakes is the stunning centrepiece of Albany Lakes Civic Park and this is where your 5km or 10km journey starts. All runners start together at the northern end of the Art Bridge at precisely 8am. All walkers start together three minutes later. The start line opens five minutes before the gun and you will enter the bridge from the mall side of the park.

Important! One lap of our course is exactly 4.95km and the finish straight along the Art Bridge is 100 metres. The 5km race does one lap plus the finish straight which is 4.95km + 0.1 km for a total of 5.05km. The 10km race does two laps plus one finish straight which is 4.95km + 4.95km + 0.1km = 10km precisely.

2km Kids’ Dash

For our future Olympians, we have a two loop course on wide footpaths with no road crossings, which keeps the kids close and safe throughout the event. That means we are able to bring the kids back into the park half way through their race for plenty of whooping and cheering as they run through a corridor of supporters – great encouragement to keep them going!

Kids start on the gravel track around the westerly lake approx. 100 metres from the starting arch on the Art Bridge. This is to ensure the course is exactly 2km and avoids the sharp turn and downhill run near the adult start line. Please KEEP LEFT when crossing the Art Bridge to the start as 10km runners and walkers will still be crossing the Art Bridge in the opposite direction to finish their race.

We’d love to hear from you, but first …
… we’ve listed the five questions we get asked most often in the list below. You can save yourself (and us!) a whole heap of time by checking these Questions and Answers to see if this might answer your query. There’s a good chance this will nail it and you’ll be all set!

Your tiktok dashboard allows you to make a variety of changes to your registration without even needing to ask us. How good is that? From within tiktok you can update your contact details, upgrade or downgrade your race selection or transfer your entry to another person. You can also add additional items like t-shirts and iTabs to your registration and pay the extra online. Just click on the LOGIN  link in the menu and log in using the email address and password that you set up during registration. On the left-side menu click on the ‘Registrations’ option and you will be able to see all your current registrations. Select the one you wish to change and follow the options from there. If you do have any difficulties, please just get back to us through this Contact Form.

Running Events offer a 50% refund of the entry fee paid to anyone who is unable to take part in one of our events for medical reasons (or a 75% refund in the case of a Series Pass entry). Notification of your intent to withdraw must be made at least one calendar month prior to the event (in the case of a “Series Pass” entry – this must be one month prior to the first event in the series) using the online contact form on the event web site. Unfortunately, we do not offer deferral of race entries to future events under any circumstances.

Full details on our Refund & Transfer policy can be found here.

Important: Please DO NOT ASK for an exception – you are wasting your time and ours. In fairness to all participants, we do not make exceptions to these rules under any circumstances.

Everyone registered in the event more than 4 weeks out from race day can expect to receive their race number (with timing tag attached to the back) 2-3 weeks prior to the event.

Those who registered after this time will need to collect their race number from the venue during race weekend. Check the Info section of the web site for dates, times and locations for Race Packet Pickup.

If you ordered any merchandise, it will be available for collection on race morning from the Merchandise tent.

Our new timing tags are small stickers that can be found on the back of your bib.  The tag sends out a unique UHF signal that identifies the athlete and records the exact time at which the athlete passes the detection mats. The tags are designed to withstand rain and sweat as the mechanical part of the tag is covered by a foam spacer but please don’t fold or bend the bib as this can damage it.  All you need to do is make sure you have your bib attached to the front of your shirt and you’re good to go.

Of course! We love walkers and all of our events are open to runners, joggers and walkers alike. Many of our events offer specific merit prizes, start times and rules for competitive walkers. Please check the event web site and you will find this information on the “Walkers” tab.
