Please be aware that to be eligible to race in the professional category at any of the Challenge Events you must have a current pro membership with us.
You need to go to our website and click on the ‘pro athlete’ tab and complete the application form found there. You must also attach a copy of your pro license from your National Triathlon Federation or a letter from your federation confirming your pro status. Once I have approved your pro membership then you will be eligible to race Challenge races around the world in the professional category.
You can always email me if you have any questions or queries on any of our races.

New for 2018 will be Challenge Wanaka Half. Originally the half distance race was just an age-group race but for next year it will also have a professional category with a prize purse. It will also double as the New Zealand Middle Distance National Championships.
Please note that the Full Distance will no longer have a pro prize purse and will be an age-group only race.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
