Following the cancellation of Ironman New Zealand due to extreme weather, Challenge Wanaka has reopened its early bird entries for all athletes until 9 March. Early bird prices for Challenge Wanaka, internationally renowned as one of the world’s most scenic iron distance triathlons, are $495 for individuals and $650 for relay teams.
“We’re so disappointed for all the athletes, all of whom had put so much into this race, whether first timers or seasoned racers,” said Challenge Wanaka race director Victoria Murray-Orr. “It’s hugely disappointing for everyone when a race has to be cancelled due to factors outside everyone’s control. Extending the early bird price for Challenge Wanaka is just a small gesture of support to those affected.”
Challenge Wanaka takes place on 19 January 2013 – to enter click here.
