One Month until the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge

ALBANY, N.Y. – April 19, 2018 – With less than one month until the Capital Region’s most popular annual road race, organizers of the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge are reminding runners that now is the time to register. The race, which is set for Thursday, May 17 at the Empire State Plaza, is once again expected to max out at 10,000 runners, so it’s important to register soon! Registration will close on May 1 or whenever the cap is reached.

NEW: Are You Up for the Fundraising Challenge?
Each year, the event serves as an important fundraiser for two local non-profits, designated as the race’s Charities of Choice. New for 2018, the team that raises the most funds by race day for the chosen charities will win a valuable advertising package that includes an on-air interview with B95.5, company name and logo on the race website, race day recognition, as well as mentions in a race day press release and social media posts.

Participants in this year’s race will be raising funds for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and the Albany Public Library Foundation. Teams and individuals are encouraged to donate at the time of registration.

The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is organized by and serves as an important fundraiser for the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC). In addition to raising funds for local charities, the race also helps to fund HMRRC’s college scholarships, grants, and free race programs for local youth.
