Nut Job Challenge
Over the years, we have learned that some of our participants are certifiably nuts! Many of you can’t get enough running and are always looking for the next challenge. Well, now we have just the thing for you! We are proud to announce the 6th Annual Frederick Nut Job Challenge. Runners who complete both the half marathon on Sunday and The Twilight 5K on Saturday will receive a special Nut Job race bib valid for both events AND earn an exclusive Nut Job medal in addition to the half marathon and 5K medals. Medals will be distributed following the completion of the half marathon. Your special bib will help our volunteers and eveyone else identify you as a Nut Job (and let them know to run the other way… very quickly!)
