Friends & Family Challenge Cup

PRESENTED BY: GOODLIFFE FITNESS

What is the Friends & Family Challenge Cup?

The Friends & Family Challenge Cup races are designed to increase competition among teams whose members are all members of the same extended family.  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.
