Challenge Wanaka: “The world’s most scenic long distance triathlon”

It’s a bold claim, but few events can come close to the beauty of the natural surroundings of Challenge Wanaka (www.www.challenge-wanaka.com).

Saturday’s race (full report HERE), saw course records plus an epic head-to-head battle between Yvonne van Vlerken (NED) and Great Britain’s Laura Siddall, the pair separated by just 27 seconds after over nine hours of racing.

Inspired? Challenge Wanaka will take place next year on 17th February 2018.
