Dougal Allan (NZL) dominated the bike thanks to a new course-record 4:27:37 split and then continued his front-running ways during the marathon to set a new course record at Challenge Wanaka this weekend. His 8:26:38 beat Richard Ussher’s 2010 time by nearly nine minutes.

In the women's race, Yvonne van Vlerken (NED) and Brit Laura Siddall repeated their battle from a year ago, with van Vlerken holding on for the win by a scant 27 seconds. Van Vlerken trailed after the bike, but managed to move to the lead during the run and would eventually set her own course record (9:15:44).
