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 4th Annual Frederick Nut Job Challenge.  Runners who complete both the CareFirst Half-Marathon on Sunday and The Twilight 5K on Saturday will receive a special Nut Job race bib valid for both events AND earn a custom Nut Job medal. 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!).

HOW TO REGISTER: Register at the Expo on 5/6/17 !  Select this category and we will make sure you receive your special Nut Job race bib at pick-up.  By registering using this category you will SAVE $5 OFF your total combined registration fee. If you have already registered for one of the race distances but did not register for the Nut Job, simply register for the other race and contact us [email protected] to let us know you are a Nut Job!  We will have to make the adjustment in our system manually.  Please Note:  If you register using this method, you waive your right to the discount.


A prize will be awarded for the 1st place overall Male & Female in the Frederick Nut Job Challenge – awards are based on the combined finishing chip time in the Half & 5K.
