The Hoka Zinal Challenge

1st July 2021 to 31st July 2021
The Hoka Zinal Challenge

Challenge Type: Custom Challenge

Challenge Goal: Total Challenge Points

About the Challenge:

The all-new Hoka Zinal is a responsive shoe ideal for short-mid distance trail runs over pretty much any kind of terrain.

It launches in NZ on July 1st and to mark the occasion we've teamed up with Hoka to create this sweet wee Challenge and give you the chance to win a pair of these durable, lightweight, grippy (and let's be honest, sexy!, shoes)

This Challenge sets you the goal of doing as many 10k - 21.1k  runs from the Wild Things Directory as you can during the month of July.

How to earn Challenge Points:

  • Each time you complete a qualifying run you will earn points equivalent to the Grunt Factor of that run e.g. complete a run with a Grunt Factor of 27 and you earn 27 points
  • Repeat runs over the same trail are all good - e.g. completing that same Grunt Factor 27 run three times during the Challenge will earn you 27 x 3 = 81 Challenge Pts

Track your progress and standing on the Challenge Leaderboard.

The more Challenge Points you earn the better your chances of winning the major prize.

Post pics from your runs to your Instagram account using the hashtag #hokazinalchallenge to be in to win bonus prizes.

TAKE CARE OUT THERE: It's winter. Please go properly prepared (see the Suggested Gear List under 'Staying Safe' on trail guides) and always let somebody know where you are going and when you expect to be back.
