Wanaka Titans

Wanaka Titans presents the Wanaka Dash - an obstacle course event with a family/carnival atmosphere, that will be held at Glendhu Station, Wanaka. The aim of the event is to promote fitness and participation rather than competing. It is set for Sunday 27 October 2019 (Labour weekend). The event is also a fundraiser for local charities and a means of helping the landowner develop Glendhu Station so that the event and the land can grow and benefit from use.The Wanaka Dash is a 7km, 20-24 obstacle course run. Over time, it is planned to expand the event to include two more distances - 12km and 16km and a load more obstacles. Then the ultimate challenge the Titan Trifecta, a 3 day event where you get the chance to run all 3 events.

Start times will be staged in waves of 30 - 40 with the first wave heading off at 8am and then every 15 minutes waves will follow until the last wave at 2pm. The entry form will ask you for your preferred start time and a back up time should your preferred start time slot be full.

Entries for the Wanaka Dash are now closed.
