Club Challenge 10M Feb 26 - Last Call

Hi Everyone.  Registration will shutdown for the Club Challenge this week.  So far we have 112 DC Road Runners running.  Sure would like to beat the 125 we had last year.  All the details are in the original announcement below.  We will provide all club members running in the race with a club singlet (for those that do not already have one).  The singlets will be distributed at Wednesday night track, Thursday morning track and SLR.  Also, on the morning of the race when you pick up your bib.  You will be contacted for your size.  We look forward to seeing another great turnout just like last year in this picture.

Registration is now open for this year's Club Challenge 10M.  This year’s race is on Sunday February 26.  It is a great event open only to Maryland and DC RRCA clubs as a team challenge race.  Our club usually brings 125 runners to the event and we have one of the largest representations amongst all the clubs.  We will again rent a bus leaving from Courthouse in Arlington and Dupont Circle in DC.  All DCRRC Members should register at the link below. The race is free to members but reminder that the club will pay your $10 race entry fee. 

You must be a currently registered member of the DC Road Runners Club to register and participate in this race  

If you do not have a current DCRRC membership then your registration will be canceled and you will not receive a bib on race day.

If you would like to ride the FREE DCRR bus to the race please register here.
