14th Training Challenge

The 14th Run for Women Training Challenge kicks off on March 18, 2024. During registration we ask you to choose your main location. This helps us to plan for mentor support. You are welcome to join any workout and we strongly encourage everyone to attend on Saturday mornings at 8:30am. Please note that we may have some field trips for clinics. You will get plenty of advance notice.

We are hoping to partner with the Capital District YMCA once again for 2024. You will receive a 1 month membership to the Capital District YMCA.
