Become a patron of Challenge Wanaka
Challenge Wanaka has become one of the region’s iconic sporting events and an integral part of the community involving over 600 local volunteers and 200 local athletes – a huge achievement for a small town. In 2010 we introduced the opportunity for people to become involved as patrons of Challenge Wanaka. With 20 founding patrons, we are extending the Patrons’ Programme each year. The generosity of patrons past, present and future will be vital to the longevity of Challenge Wanaka and all the economic and social benefits it brings to our community. The benefits of becoming a patron include:
- Access to grandstand and VIP area on race day
- Opportunity to meet pro athletes at welcome function
- Name displayed on website
- Name displayed on sponsor board during the event
- Regular e-newsletters
- $100 off Challenge Wanaka entry
- $50 off Lake Wanaka Half entry.
