WORKFORCE Team Challange May 17, 2018

Thursday, May 17, 2018

The CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge 3.5-mile race will take place on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at 6:25 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. Registration for the 2018 race will begin on March 5. Each year thousands of runners, walkers, and volunteers from hundreds of organizations throughout the area gather with their co-workers to take part in the largest annual road race in the Capital Region.

The event is organized by, and serves as the major fundraiser for, the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC). The funds raised help underwrite many of HMRRC’s activities and offerings, including college scholarships, grants, many free races for members, and the Just Run® Program, which encourages grade school children to run for exercise and fun. CDPHP is now in its eighth year as the primary sponsor of this event. Each year, in conjunction with the race, HMRRC and CDPHP select one or more charities of choice, each of which receives a donation from CDPHP, as well as direct contributions from race participants. The application process for the charities of choice closed on February 2. The selected charities will be announced in mid-February.

The course will be undergoing a small change in 2018. The section around and through Washington Park will be run in reverse. The start and finish will be unchanged. Participants will enter Washington Park off Madison Avenue just past Willett Street and reverse the previous course to Lake Avenue and then finish the final mile straight down Madison Avenue. A new course map will be posted on the web site soon. Water locations will be adjusted accordingly.

Congratulations to All Participants, and Thanks to All Our Volunteers!
