Breca Wanaka

Breca Wanaka is New Zealand's original swimrun adventure through the rugged wilderness of the Southern Lakes District.

Wanaka is a spectacular, challenging landscape for swimrun. Set against the backdrop of the Mt. Aspiring National Park, teams will pit themselves against deep, glacial water; pristine trails, island-hopping and long lake crossings. With a course comprising 42km running and 8km of swimming over 18 transitions, this is not a race for the faint-hearted.

The next race will take place in March 2018, the exact date will be announced imminently.
