ALBANY, N.Y. – February 26, 2019 – Registration is now open for the Capital Region’s largest annual road race. The CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge is set for Thursday, May 16 at the Empire State Plaza. The race is once again expected to max out at 10,000 runners, so it’s important to register early!

Each year, the race serves as an important fundraiser for two local not-for-profits, designated as the race’s Charities of Choice. This year, participants will be raising funds for the Albany Damien Center and Family Promise of the Capital Region. Teams and individuals are encouraged to make contributions at the time of registration.

Are You Up to the Challenge?

Once again this year, organizers are encouraging teams to participate in a pre-race fundraising challenge. The team that raises the most funds for the Charities of Choice will receive special race-day recognition, an on-air interview with media sponsor B95.5, company logo on the race website, and mentions in the race-day press release and social media posts.

The event 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 HMRRCs college scholarships, grants, and free race programs for local youth.
