Challenge Wanaka Triathlon

The world's most scenic iron distance triathlon (226km), set against the stunning lake and mountain backdrop of the Mount Aspiring National Park in New Zealand's South Island.

Described by athletes as one of the best events on the international circuit, Challenge Wanaka’s terrain, remoteness and honesty of the course makes it one of the most memorable. Athletes from around the world come to Wanaka every year to test themselves over 226k of swimming, biking and running through Wanaka’s stunning surrounds.

Combined with triathlon events of shorter lengths for everyone from professional to local youngsters, Challenge weekend is a celebration of human endurance. Combine racing or supporting friends or family accepting the Challenge Wanaka challenge with superior accommodation and your choice of carefully selected local experiences and adventure activities.

What our customers say

  • "Thanks for the fantastic Wanaka getaway! From the stunning accommodation to the co-ordination of activities the whole experience was first class. The attention to detail combined with your easy-going style made what was expected to be a bit of an outdoors boy's weekend into a five star experience. Packing the glacier light plane flight, mountain motorbike tour, trout fishing, hiking, clay bird shooting etc. etc. into a four night stay topped off with the private chef was a great escape experience. I will have no hesitation in highly recommending Release and look forward to getting back there sometime soon."
