Challenge mystery

ORGANISERS of Challenge Henley have refused to say whether the event will return next year.

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.
