Avalanche Peak Challenge

Saturday, 21 February 2015

Arthur's Pass Village, Canterbury

Cancelled Run/Walk Off Road/Trail

The Avalanche Peak Challenge was a 13km mountain race in true mountain environment, starting and finishing in Arthur's Pass Village, approx two hours drive from Christchurch.

This event has been discontinued.

The event was established in Arthurs Pass over 25 years ago, starting small and growing to 400 entries. Entries began to decline in the mid 2000s due to the increasingly competitive event calendar and a couple of unfortunate cancellation years in extreme weather.

Alongside the decline in entries, increasing costs and health and safety concerns have made the event financially unsustainable and the decision was been made to discontinue this event.
