2014 Downtown Challenge Dates Announced!
It’s back! Join us for some running games at Raleigh’s craziest fun-run challenge.
What is Downtown Challenge? It’s a fun run in which runners complete various “challenges” to earn raffle tickets. These could be anything; past challenges have included photo scavenger hunts, team trivia competitions, circuit workouts, costume competitions and more.
Are there prizes? Yes – the prizes are the best part! We have drawings for tons of great prizes, including FREE Brooks shoes.
Is there food/drink afterward? After our runs we’ll have lite snacks and refreshments. Check back for specifics.
How far is the run? It’s up to you! Some of our challenges, such as scavenger hunts, may lure runners to far-flung locations with high-ticket-value clues, but there’s something for everyone, even if you only want to cover a mile or two.
Is it walker-friendly? Yes! All paces and levels are welcome at Downtown Challenge.
Stay tuned for specific details on our first Downtown Challenge of the season on Tuesday, February 18, 6 PM. We’ll be updating this page, or follow us on Facebook and join our Meetup group for the latest scoop.
