Albany, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
With only one week left to register for the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, we want to be sure you have the team, the tools, and cheering section at the finish line on May 15.
The race is open to teams of employees from corporations, businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and financial institutions. Registration ends May 2.
The 3.5 mile race, which is set for May 15 at 6:25 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, is the largest annual road race between Utica and New York City, attracting thousands of runners, joggers and walkers of all fitness levels.
The newly certified course has the potential for faster run times, as the starting line has been moved up Madison Avenue, alleviating congestion at the start of the race. Also new to the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, live music will be provided at several locations along the course!
Registration will be capped at 10,000 participants.
Appoint a team captain, recruit co-workers, and register at the official CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge site.
Once you’ve registered, join the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge community on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Share photos, training progress, and more at #TeamChallenge!

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 services, including college scholarships, grants, running clinics, and the Just Run® Program geared to grade school runners.
Race proceeds also benefit non-profit organizations chosen by the club each year. This year, four local charities will receive funding support.

- Rebuilding Together Saratoga County, Inc. provides volunteers to work on free home repairs for older adults, persons living with disabilities, low-income families, and veterans.
- Schenectady Inner City Ministry is a partnership of 53 faith congregations that offers programs that serve low-income people, especially those who experience food insecurity.
