Regional Sporting Trust Rivalry Lighting Up Kathmandu C2C Corporate Challenge
Date Posted : 2018/10/19
The challenge of “walking the talk” by competing as a team in February’s Kathmandu Coast to Coast issued over a month ago by Sport Canterbury has been taken on by the country’s southernmost regional sports trust.
Sport Canterbury CEO Julyan Falloon challenged local councils and regional sporting organisations to enter a corporate team in the Kathmandu Coast to Coast in a bid to foster local and regional rivalry and the call was heard loud and clear in the offices of Sport Southland.
The Corporate Challenge Event sees a three person team competing in the two day event splitting up the cycling, running and kayaking. At least two members of the team must be full time employees of the company leaving room for one ring in if required. “We see the event as a great team-building exercise and example of encouraging staff to set goals around their own sport, recreation and wellbeing,” Falloon said.
As far as predicating which Sports Trust would cross the finish line first Falloon was quick to point out he thought he’d get the better of McDermott over the 30.5 kilometre mountain run giving him the ability to build a winning lead heading into the kayak and final bike legs. “Well, we’ll see about that on the day won’t we,” McDermott quipped.
