Lake Wanaka Half
Half the grind, all the magic!
Test your metal on the legendary Challenge Wanaka course but at half the distance. The course will follow the same spectacular route that has quickly earned Challenge Wanaka the title of the world’s most scenic iron distance triathlon. The 1.9km swim will be one lap of the swim course in the crystal waters of Lake Wanaka, the 90km cycle will travel out towards Treble Cone before heading back through Lake Wanaka and then cutting across to Lake Hawea. The 21.1km run will be one lap of the current Challenge Wanaka run course, half of which is off-road alongside the lake and banks of the Clutha River.
The Lake Wanaka Half is open to both teams and individuals and will run concurrently with Challenge Wanaka. Please note that this results in a course closure time of 2.50pm or 7.15 hours to ensure the finish chute is clear for the winning Challenge Wanaka athletes.
