What to Wear at Ruakaka Racing


The Interislander Summer Festival racing in January is very casual summer wear but for functions such as the “Harcourts High Tea” or “Spring Into Racing” – the smart “racewear fashions” come to the fore. A good source for fashion information is found here.


The main thing is to make sure you're comfortable as you do tend to spend a lot of time on your feet and it is an outdoor event, sometimes in cold wintry conditions. Ruakaka racecourse has ample under cover areas or function rooms a short walk from the car parks but with an open grandstand you do require appropriate layers of clothing for those southern winds.
