Soothe with Sweet Cheeks

Soothe with Sweet Cheeks

Challenge Type: Flash Challenge

Challenge Goal: Distance

About the Challenge:

Butt Butter is bloody awesome. A natural anti-chafing cream for all athletes. Soothing and antiseptic, it helps to prevent chafing, blisters and sores when out there exploring.

Super Balm is a wonder for skin ailments; heal your bumps, bruises, cuts, and bites after that bush adventure!

These, plus some more awesome natural products are all handmade by Jennie at Sweet Cheeks, in stunning Wanaka. Thanks to Jennie, we're giving away a big stash, and all you need to do is run!

The goal for this one is simple: run or walk as far as you can during May.

You don't need to run on a trail from our Trail Directory; anywhere counts, and as this is a running distance challenge, the more distance you record on Strava while running, hiking, or walking the higher up the leaderboard you'll find yourself.

The more challenge points you earn the better your chances of winning from our stash of Sweet Cheeks Butt Butter and Super Balm!

Also make sure you post your beautiful trail photos to Instagram using #wildsweetcheeks and tag @wildthingsnz for more chances to win!

If you need any Butt Butter anti-chafe for your adventures up the challenge leaderboard, just check it out in our shop.

Challenge Prizes:

We have ten packages of Butt Butter and Super Balm, worth $370 to giveaway.

Five will be awarded as spot prizes at the end of the challenge, and the other five awarded for the best Instagram photos.

Instagram Photo Prize

Post pictures to your Instagram account using #wildsweetcheeks and tag @wildthingsnz - show us your beautiful trail photos!

This means anyone can win, so get involved!
