Challenge Wanaka

Challenge Wanaka

Challenge Wanaka must be the worlds most scenic iron distance triathlon covering a distance of 226km.

Described by athletes as one of the best in the international circuit, it is set against the magnificent background of Lake Wanaka and the Mt Aspiring National Park.

The mental and physical challenges will push athletes to their limits but the support of the locals is superb with the resulting atmosphere helping the most exhusted competitor over the finish line.

The weather in Lake Wanaka in January is stunning, and an average day is 26-28 degrees celcius with clear blue skies and very little wind. It is however an alpine environment so athletes must be prepared for all eventualities.

Registration for the main event starts at 9am on Thursday 14th January 2010, with the main race starting at 7am on Saturday 16th January.
