Dell Technologies Management Challenge


The Dell Technologies Management Challenge is a unique 4 dimensional competitive event aimed at optimising management team performance and delivering positive charitable outcomes. A team, comprising of 6 plus 1 ‘Team Enabler’, participate in:

  1. A 2 day Adventure Race (canoeing, mountain biking, running, hiking)
  2. Management development, including a keynote speaker.
  3. Senior-level Networking opportunities and forums
  4. Charity fundraising activities

The 2021 event theme is Sustainability. Team members will get to understand the principles, benefits and challenges around the chosen theme in work and sporting contexts. They will be able to then apply their learning in the team Adventure Race and Management Task to benefit themselves and their organisations.

Leading events delivery organisation Run 4 Wales, has now added the Management Challenge to its portfolio of world class mass-participation events. The team behind events like the Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon and ABP Newport Wales Marathon will apply considerable expertise and infrastructure to support the expansion of the event.
