NZ competitors can save paying an extra 2% on your entry fee by paying by internet banking rather than credit card. Select this option when you reach the checkout and then all you need to do is remember to transfer the funds to secure your spot!

Cancellation Policy – COVID-19
Competitors who have travelled from overseas specifically with the intention of competing in the 2021 event, but for good reason are not able to compete in the event, may transfer their entry fee to one of the 2022 or 2023 events, or on request may receive a refund of 75% of their paid entry fee. The above refunds or transfers shall apply until 1 February 2021. After 1 February 2021, no refund or transfer will be made.
If New Zealand is in COVID level 2, 3 or 4 between 30 September 2020 and 30 January 2021, and the Challenge Wanaka Sports Trust cannot run an event in February 2021, competitors will be offered a transfer of their entry to one of the 2022 or 2023 events, or have a 75% refund.
If, after 1 February 2021, New Zealand enters COVID level 2, 3 or 4, and this is affecting or impacting the Wanaka region, the 2021 event will be cancelled. As the event will have incurred significant costs, the Trust will be unable to offer any refund or transfer. The Challenge Wanaka Sports Trust will however endeavour to offer to cancelled 2021 competitors a discounted entry to the 2022 event, financed from any cash reserves left from 2021.
The Challenge Wanaka Sports Trust is committed to supporting Challenge Family athletes and trusts that they will understand that we will always be doing our best to look after them.
