IT'S CHALLENGE TIME!
Teams and Solo Elite Challenge
In this event teams compete in teams of two, with one member completing the 18km run, and the other the 27km bike. As an added challenge each team is given a give-a-little page with which to raise some money for local, regional, and national charities.
This year we are also introducing a Solo Elite Challenge. This is where an individual will tackle both the 18km run and the 27km MTB as well as taking up the fundraising challenge!
We are continuing the same format as last year leaving the fundraising target at $250 and then rewarding you with 'time' for every $ you raise above that.
You will receive a bonus of 1 second off your teams time for every dollar raised above the $250 target. That means if your team can raise an extra $300 they get a 5 minute advantage on the pack. Last year fundraising played a huge part in the final results, so these seconds could very well be crucial to who takes home the trophy! It will also mean any team can be in it to win it - the winning team will be a combination of sporting AND fundraising prowess.
If you are interested in putting in a team or you think you've got what it takes to enter as an individual, then complete the form below and we will be in touch.
For any questions or queries please phone Ryan Luckman on email.
The 2020 Legends
Team Sibling Rivalry - Joel & Shaun
Brother's Joel and Shaun are the second team to enter the teams challenge. Usually competing against each other, this is a chance for the two of them to team up while supporting some great charities (although we're sure there will be some bragging rights for the best placings in their events......).
Joel, from Christchurch, is surprisingly still keen to take on the bike leg in spite of a traumatic "downstairs" handlebar accident. Although he may be putting on a pair of training wheels to reduce the chances of a fall!
Shaun, from Ashburton, is anchoring the run leg, bringing some pedigree after competing in the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic. He also tends to favour some training wheels (or the kids pram as he calls it), so his balance may be a bit off running by himself.
Get in behind the brothers and spot some sponsorship. Every dollar raised over $250 gives the team a 1 second advantage, so get donating and give them a head start!!!
Team Tash & Leah (ANZ)
Fresh off the Spring Challenge Tash and Leah are ready to take on the hills of Waimate! Some call them directionally challenged after they mucked up the rogaine and ran 5km up hill in wrong direction to then turn around and run 5km to then be back at the start line....... we just like to call it extra training!
With a claim to fame of "having bigger legs than their boyfriends", they're ready to power up the steep bits with pace! Representing ANZ, the WAG's of the Waimate Rugby Team, and the Harlequins Netball team they'll bring plenty of sponsorship power! Every dollar raised over $250 gives the team a 1 second advantage, so get donating and give the team a head start!!!
