Summer Pricing

Today, June 30th, is the last day to register at $35 per person and $30 per team member. On July 1st prices go up $10/person.
The summer racing season is in full swing. Wear your cool Capital City Challenge shirts around town while training and doing other races. We will give you a wave, and generally think that you are an awesome person.
Remember our first ever kids' fun run too. Kids get to wear a cape and follow their favorite super hero in full costume leading the way. It should be a great time for all ages, and we are really excited about it.

Spring/Summer Pricing

We are in the second round of pricing for the 2014 Capital City Challenge. Registration is $35/individual and $30/team member through June 30. While you are preparing for Spring and Summer events make sure to get your early discounts for the Challenge. For those intimidated by the full triathlon, now is a good time to find team members so you can tackle the Challenge with a friend or two. It is also a good time to line up a kayak and a bike for individual participants. Beyond the equipment all you need is to get in shape. Now is a good time for that too!
