Take on THE CHALLENGE
2 days, 2 races, 2 medals, all the bragging rights.
For this year’s Silo District Marathon, we’re mixing it up a little bit with what we’re calling The Challenge. To participate as one of our “challengers,” here’s what you need to do:
Run the 5K on Saturday, April 25 and either the half or full marathon on Sunday, April 26.
Bonus: Those who register will receive an exclusive long sleeve, dri-fit shirt!
Will I receive two bibs? No. Challengers will receive an exclusive bib to wear for both races.
Will I still receive my short sleeve participant shirt? Yes—we want you to have all the swag!
Does this mean I am running two days in a row? Yes, and you can do it!
How many medals will I receive? Two, one after each race you complete.
