Welcome to the 2017 Sole Challenge

IT IS WITH EXTREME SADNESS THAT SOLE CHALLENGE RACES WILL NOT OFFER A 2018 EDITION. REASONS ARE EXTENSIVE, HOWEVER, A FEW OF THE OBVIOUS REASONS ARE:

1. Lack of financial support. I have invested over $20g of my own money in the race over the 5 years. I can not afford it anymore. Corporate sponsors do not understand the timed races and without anything in return, sponsorship is extremely difficult to obtain.

2. Lack of Volunteers. For any race to be successful, especially one that is as long as Sole Challenge, many volunteers are needed. People can't/don't want to volunteer their time, I understand, but without them the race gets a great amount of negative publicity on Social media which affects next year's registrations.

A marathon may happen sometime in 2018, however, getting the park reserved has not faired well with the time of the year I'd like to offer it. So, the marathon may have to wait until 2019.

 

Congratulations to all Runners in brutal extreme conditions. Thank you for running in our races.
