Covid 19


The health and safety of participants, our crew, and everyone involved with the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is our top priority. We always endeavor to deliver a safe and enjoyable event. We adhere to the Events Sector Voluntary Code for Covid-19, and operate as follows: 


  • If you have cold, flu or Covid19 symptoms, please stay home
  • If you develop Covid19 symptoms while on event, please get in your car and go home
  • Please use the NZ COVID Tracer QR Code.
  • We encourage you to wear a mask when indoors, when you cannot maintain physical distance from others, or are around others you don’t know.
  • Maintain good hygiene measures, including washing your hands regularly, cough or sneezing into your elbow


Vaccination Certificates:
The Government has introduced My Vaccine Pass vaccination certificates and in order to run the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge under the Traffic Light System, (which we can do under both an orange and green light) there is a requirement to make sure all attendees and personnel are fully vaccinated, which we will do using the NZ Pass Verifier.

With confirmation from NZ Government that New Zealand will move to the Traffic Light System framework from 11.59pm on Thursday 2 December 2021, (and unless otherwise advised), all participants, staff and volunteers attending BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge will be required to provide their My Vaccine Pass as evidence that they have been fully vaccinated. This also applies to anyone attending one of our designated facilities such as the Expo at the Great Lake Centre and our Event Village.

We appreciate people’s right to choose, however with the regulations of the Traffic Light System, we need to ensure that all people attending the event will be fully vaccinated. If you will not have a My Vaccine Pass on the day, please contact us directly at and we will be happy to work with you on possible options.
