ORGANISERS of Challenge Henley have refused to say whether the event will return next year.
The date for the 2014 triathlon is advertised on Just Racing UK’s website as September 7 next year.
But the official Challenge Henley website only states that people should expect an announcement soon and refers to the event as “Challenge UK”.
A company spokeswoman was unwilling to confirm whether the event will return for a fourth year.
She said: “There is definitely going to be a Challenge race next year. You will just have to wait for more details until the announcement is made.”
Race director Alan Rose has said that staging this year’s event was a “uphill struggle” and suggested it could be moved elsewhere due to a lack of public support.
Oxfordshire County Council said it had not been approached regarding a date or location for next year’s race.
