Education Challenge Cup

PRESENTED BY: CLV GROUP

What is the Education Challenge Cup?

The Education Challenge Cup races are designed to increase competition among teams whose members attend or work for educational institutions, administration, or associated parent advisory associations. If you choose to enter a Challenge Cup you will be grouped with similar teams for the first race of the weekend. If there are more than 8 teams in a Challenge Cup your second race on Saturday will serve as the Challenge Cup Final. Entering a Challenge Cup does not increase the number of times a team will race.
