The atmosphere at the first cross country race the CVC ever organised was electric, the weather played its part, and most of the athletes proved that they were indeed Up for The Challenge! The 35km run kicked off at 7 am, the 21km at 7:30am, and the 10km run at 8:15am on a magical saturday september morning. (3/9/2022)

As the team promised, all 3 routes had amazing views. Awesome race photographers volunteered their services and made most of the trails. You can view and purchase your Race Photos by clicking on the link below and typing in ‘Titanic Challenge‘ as there are a few different folders. 

A whopping 560 athletes registered for this, our first, race. As far as we could tell, all had a good time.
