Course Cut Off Times

We are very grateful to get the road closures we do for Cigna Round the Bays and it is vital that the roads are clear of participants and open for public traffic at the advertised and agreed times.

We work closely with the Wellington City Council, New Zealand Transport Agency and the Police to manage the road closures, so please note the road re-opening times and if you are still on course when a road is re-opening please move to the footpath and listen to the police or course marshals directions.
