Chal­lenge Wanaka

Central Otago Mirror - - CONVERSATIONS -

Chal­lenge Wanaka was recog­nised for its in­no­va­tion and on­go­ing suc­cess win­ning the 2018 Univer­sity of Otago In­no­va­tion in Sport Award at ASB Bank Otago Sports Awards last month.

‘‘To be rec­og­nized for in­no­va­tion in sport was some­thing pretty spe­cial,’’ Chal­lenge Wanaka Race Di­rec­tor Bill Roxburgh said.

‘‘We work hard at en­gag­ing with our lo­cal com­mu­nity and are proud we are al­ways look­ing for in­no­va­tive ways to im­prove each year on what is al­ready a world class event.

Win­ning the Univer­sity of Otago In­no­va­tion of Sport Award is fan­tas­tic recog­ni­tion of all the hard work that goes on, much of it un­seen be­hind the scenes from our loads of vol­un­teers.

With­out the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and our army of vol­un­teers we just couldn’t run the event’’

The next Chal­lenge Wanaka is Satur­day, 16 Fe­bru­ary.
