Teams & Corporate Trophy

Teams

One of the great things about Challenge Wanaka and Challenge Wanaka Half is the team category. Relay teams of two or three can enter the event and compete over the same course. So get together with a couple of friends and family and start training for one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

If you are keen to enter the team event but need to find team mates please use the ‘Find a Team Mate’ service on this website.

There is a dedicated swim start for the teams category. On exiting the water the swimmer must run through to transition and transfer the timing chip to the cyclist who will be waiting by their bike rack.

After the tag (transfer of the timing chip) the cyclist may then unrack their bike and head out of T1 observing the same instructions and rules as the individual competitors. The same drafting rules also apply.

On completing the cycle leg, team competitors will re-enter T2, rack their bike and pass on the timing chip to the runner, who is waiting by the bike rack, the runner starts their run. Please note that team cyclists may not take their bikes from transition at this point. For security reasons, all bikes will be racked and may only be collected after T2 is closed.
