Mt Lyford Alpine Resort - Mt Lyford Challenge: 9km with a 863m climb. This challenge is Canterbury’s premier adventure race, designed for experienced runners or walkers and new comers to adventure mountain racing. A good level of fitness is required for this challenge.
De Kikker Vijver Lodge - Bushline Challenge: 5km with a 400m climb. The Bushline Challenge is designed for newcomers to adventure mountain racing. Average fitness required.
Macpac - Junior Challenge: 3km with a 130m climb. This is a great way to introduce 7-14 year olds to adventure racing. This is a cross-country challenge run on well-formed tracks.
Paper Plus - Merivale Store - School Challenge:
