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!
