Inaugural Howard Community College Challenge Race Raises Over $31,000 for Student Scholarships

Howard Community College held its first-ever Challenge Race on Sunday, October 12, as more than 40 teams and 165 participants ran, climbed and crawled through a challenging course that snaked through the college’s campus. Proceeds from the event benefited the Howard Community College Educational Foundation, with over $31,000 raised to support student scholarships. The obstacle-filled, three-mile course took runners across parking lots, around athletics fields, and up a parking garage before finally crossing the finish line in the college’s Quad.

Earning the Champions Cup with the fastest cumulative time was the Wilson Team, followed in second place by the Smyth Jewelers team and in third place by the KCI Technologies team. Other award winners included teams from Smyth Jewelers (Challenge Cup), KCI Technologies (Real Estate Cup), Columbia Association (Wellness Cup), BB&T Rouse Runners (Finance Cup), and JHU Carey School of Business (Columbia Gateway Cup).
