All Blacks legend and Olympic icon to lead Laureus trek in New Zealand in 2020

‘I can’t wait to lead the next Challenge through my home country and raise funds to help Laureus change lives through sport’ – Sean Fitzpatrick

Following the success of Challenge Africa 2019, the 100km fundraising trek that raised over US$400,000 for five Laureus-supported programmes, Laureus Academy legends Sean Fitzpatrick and Michael Johnson are proud to announce Laureus’ next Just Challenge trek in New Zealand in March 2020.

On Challenge New Zealand, the general public will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join their sporting heroes, step out of their comfort zones, complete a physical and mental challenge and raise funds for Laureus Sport for Good in the process.

The four-day trek will begin in Queenstown and take participants on a 100km journey through the spectacular Mavora Lakes Conservation Park (used as a filming location for scenes in the Lord of the Rings film series) across Mount Nicholas Station and end on the beautiful shores of Lake Wakatipu.

Challenge New Zealand 2020 will be the third Laureus-supported trek Just Challenge have led, following Challenge Africa through the Drakensberg mountains earlier this month and Challenge Himalayas in 2018.

There are only 100 spaces available and Just Challenge expect the challenge to be over-subscribed. To learn more about Challenge New Zealand and sign up, visit just-challenge.com/newzealand2020.
