Extreme Early Bird Registration

We know that most weekend warriors like to wait until a few weeks before an event to register. But if you are certain you will participate in the fifth annual Capital City Challenge, now until April 18th would be a good time to register. It only costs $25 for individuals and $25 per team member to register during that time period. So all you loyal Challengers, be sure to save some money and sign up before April 18th. Only paper applications are available at this time. As soon as online registration is up and running for 2014 we will let you know.

The Off-Season

As 2013 winds down, we hope that all our participants are finding a way to stay active. Hit the gym, treadmill, or road if you can. Keep that winter holiday weight off and be ready to come back leaner for the 2014 event. No concrete plans have been made concerning next year's race. But rest assured we will be back sometime in mid-September. If you feel like providing feedback on the 2013 race, click on the "Forum" tab and fill out the form there.
Until then, happy holidays and happy training!

The Final Countdown

We are less than a month away from this year's challenge. If you are on the fence about participating, jump over it and join us. Prices increase by $10 on September 1st, so make sure to beat that deadline and save some money. People of all skill and experience levels are welcome to take part. For Charleston Distance Run runners, you have two weeks to recover from the aches and soreness. That's plenty of time.
Make 2013 an epic year and tackle the Capital City Challenge!
