The Shoe Science Mega Autumn Challenge

1st March 2022 to 31st May 2022
The Shoe Science Mega Autumn Challenge

Challenge Type: Custom Challenge

Challenge Goal: Total Challenge Points

Open Challenge: Open to all VIPs

About the Challenge:

With eight stores across Auckland, Bay of Plenty, and Hawkes Bay, Shoe Science are giving you the chance to win one of sixteen $200 vouchers; that's a huge $3,200 worth of vouchers!

Hit any trail from any of these three regions from our trail running directory in autumn (March, April, and May) and you're in the draw.

You can run the same trail multiple times; it'll still count!

The more Challenge Points you earn the better your chances of winning a $200 Shoe Science Gift Voucher at the end of the challenge.

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

And remember, Shoe Science also offers an epic 20% off in-store to our VIP Members! Check out the Shoe Science Discount for more info!

Challenge Prizes:

At the end of the challenge, we will give away 16 x $200 Shoe Science vouchers. $3,200 worth! How epic is that!

Each voucher will be redeemable at a specific Shoe Science shop; Albany, Takapuna, Mt Eden, Newmarket, Pukekohe, Silverdale, Tauranga, and Havelock North. We will try our best to ensure the winners receive a voucher for a store close to them, but cannot be guaranteed!

Vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other discounts or specials at Shoe Science.
