Someone prepared to learn to cross country ski, enter the Merino Muster and write about the experience for the Wanaka Sun, will be offered free gear hire and tuition from event organisers and the Snow Farm.
The Merino Muster has three race categories from the 7km Straggle Muster to a full marathon (42km), and the person selected can choose to enter in any category, although organisers suggest they stick with 7km, especially if they are a beginner.
Anyone interested should email the editor of the Wanaka Sun (email@example.com)
saying why they should be chosen, by 5pm on Tuesday (June 16).
The winner will be selected by event organisers and the Wanaka Sun.
They will be given options of when they can train, either during the week or at the weekend, depending on their work and family commitments.
The Merino Muster will be held at the Snow Farm on August 15. Last year the cross-country skiing event became part of the international Worldloppet organisation
, which coordinates 20 ski marathons around the world.
