Challenge Wanaka is a tough, rough and challenging course

I've designed sessions speciffically to handle this tough terrain.

About the plan

A 12-week training plan designed specifically for Challenge Wanaka Full Distance. This plan provides sufficient Strength Endurance training which is essential for the amazing tough Wanaka bike course and spectacular, part off road, marathon course.

You can’t underestimate this course as Chris McCormack did in 2012. This plan has a sufficient amount of foundation and strength work put in so you can remain strong throughout the day.

Please enjoy many of the training sessions in full HD done by Chris McCormack walking you through every aspect of the session you need to know. 

Following the full 12 weeks, a 2-week taper is recommended to take you into race day.

* Plans also accessible via our APP!
