The 3 Peaks

9th July 2022 to 9th August 2022
The 3 Peaks

Challenge Type: Peak Challenge

Challenge Goal: Number of summits

About the Challenge:

Named after the three peaks of Flagstaff (668m), Swampy (739m), and Mt Cargill (676m), the 3 Peaks Mountain Race takes runners and walkers up and along some of Dunedin’s most beautiful trails through lush native bush and forestry where they are rewarded with stunning panoramic views.

July 9th sees entries open for the 40th 3 Peaks Mountain Race in March 2023, so to celebrate, and help you train, we're keen to see you peak bagging!

We're keeping it simple; climb a peak from our peak directory and you'll be on the leaderboard. Every time you summit a peak, even if it's the same peak, you'll increase your chances of winning!

Remember to post photos from your runs to your Instagram account using the hashtags #wildthingspeakchallenge and #3peaksmountainrace to have a chance of grabbing the Instagram photo prize!

You will need to record your runs on Strava, and have your Wild Things account linked for your peak summits to be counted.

Challenge Prizes:

On completion of the challenge, we will draw a spot prize winner - every summit that you've reached gives you one chance in the draw.

The winner will receive a free entry to the distance of their choice at the 3 Peaks Mountain Race in March next year.

We also have another free entry to offer as an Instagram prize! At the end of the challenge, we will select one winner from all photos that have been posted to Instagram during the challenge using the hashtags #wildthingspeakchallenge and #3peaksmountainrace. Quality pictures that are in keeping with the theme of the challenge have the best chance of being selected.
