hristchurch is the first stop on the 2017 Corporate Challenge series and the vast and leafy surrounds of Hagley Park will play host to us on the evening of Wednesday, November 8th. Race HQ is in the entertainment quarter of North Hagley Park, with easy access from the western end of Armagh St. This is the Garden City at its best!

The race starts at 6:30pm but you’ll want to be in position well before that. If you have any team changes, head to the info tent as soon as you arrive on site. When you’ve gathered your team together, head to the photo area to get your team photo taken. All photos will be available on our facebook page the day after the event. Check out our race schedule for all dates and times and we’ll see you at the venue!

Course Description

Fidelity Life Corporate Challenge Christchurch is held entirely within the confines of Christchurch’s leafy North Hagley Park. The course is a single, clockwise, figure-of-eight lap of the wide and welcoming footpaths of the park and includes two sections next to Victoria Lake and a loop around the golf course.

The race begins under the start arch and the first 150 metres are on the grass before turning onto the wide footpaths of Hagley Park. Three right turns take you on a circuit of the entertainment triangle before a long stretch across the width of the park, passing beautiful Victoria Lake on your left.

A wide triangle adjacent to Deans Ave includes the half way mark and points you back towards the finish area. You now have North Hagley golf course on your left and another opportunity to enjoy Victoria Lake, this time on your right.

The 3.5km mark brings you back close to the finish area but you ain’t done yet! A left turn takes you north to the boundary with Harper Ave where a couple of right turns head you back towards the finish area. Enjoy a run on the banks of the tranquil Avon River – with Park Terrace on the other side – before a left turn back into the body of the park for the last few hundred metres.

As you come in to complete your 5km lap, fences and flags will direct you down the final glorious 50 metres to the finish line. Put your hands in the air and say “yeah! I did it”. Grab a well earned drink from our table or head over to your team tent to hit the BBQ!
