I did this race a couple of years ago. It's all firetrail and gravel roads, no singletrack, but a great location and excellent atmosphere.

looks like a good bit of fun round the corner from free accommodation. Bit worried about the first climb though - any tips/thoughts?

Yes, it should spread the field out a bit. It's pretty steep from memory, with one rough pinch that most people walk.
