Hillary Outdoors – first ever recipient of the Round the Bays Youth Sports Fund!
We are delighted to announce that Hillary Outdoors has been awarded the inaugural Youth Sports Fund thanks to Round the Bays! The fund worth $10,000 will enable two Auckland schools attend an adventure racing training camp and compete at the North Island Regionals of the Hillary Challenge in 2022.
The Hillary Challenge offered by Hillary Outdoors sees up to 240 students from Year 11–13 competing as teams in running/trekking, mountain biking and rogaining, as well as teamwork and problem-solving tasks.
