ALBANY, N.Y. – June 1, 2021 – CDPHP and the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC) are announcing the return of the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge on Thursday, August 26, 2021. The 2020 CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge was canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis.  

To keep participants and our greater community safe, numerous safety precautions are being taken, including the temporary relocation of the race to the Altamont Fairgrounds from downtown Albany. A virtual race option will also be available. 

Additional safety measures are as follows and are subject to change based on updated guidance from New York state:

  • A significantly reduced field

  • Multiple, socially-distant waves

  • No water stops on the course – participants must bring their own water

  • Mask wearing when social distancing is not possible

Registration is slated to open in mid-June. Local not-for-profits IPH (Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless), The RED Bookshelf, and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region have been retained from 2020 and will receive important funds from the race. Teams and individuals are encouraged to make contributions at the time of registration. 

The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is organized by and serves as a significant fundraiser for the 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.
