The Billy Webb Challenge is going ahead this year on 11th December 2016. Damir Martin has accepted Mahe Drysdale‘s challenge to re-race the closest race in Olympic history, here on the Whanganui River.
The two top athletes will be joined by any rowers who wish to take the pair on over a 5km course. The race will start and finish by the Union Boat Club on Taupo Quay, opposite Motua Gardens.
A corporate challenge and sprint race will be held before the Billy Webb Challenge.
