2019 CDPHP WTC FAQs

Compiled by Christine Bishop

The Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC) organizes the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge each year.  The proceeds of the race go to the HMRRC to fund its non-profit activities and to two charities of choice chosen by members.  Enormous in scope, the race usually comprises over 500 corporate teams and 10,000 participants most running but some waking.  Race day turns Albany Plaza into a bustling city of its own with runners, organizers, volunteers, and viewers creating a riot of color with their t-shirts of every color.  The energy is contagious.
