Walk, whatever the weather

Walk, whatever the weather

Challenge Type: Flash Challenge

Challenge Goal: Distance

About the Challenge:

The trails we explore aren't just for running. Yes, flying down some single track is spectacularly fun, and running gets us places faster, but sometimes it's good just to take our time, and walk.

So, as we move into the colder, wetter months, whatever the weather, Merrell want to see you out there, walking, hiking, and tramping.

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

Only activities marked as Walk or Hike in Strava will count!

Challenge Prizes:

We have five $200 vouchers to spend on anything at merrell.co.nz up for grabs.

These will be awarded as spot prizes at the end of the challenge. Each point on the leaderboard gets you an entry in the spot prize draw, but remember, you could still win, even with just one point!

Oh, and remember, you can always grab 15% off anything at Merrell with our VIP Rewards!
