ARC Decker Challenge Presented by Rogue Running
Dec 9 2012
Austin Runners Club
The Austin Runners Club announces the 34th annual Decker Challenge presented by Rogue Running on December 9. This challenging race of rolling hills and unpredictable weather has earned a reputation of one of the toughest races in Texas.
Over 34 years, the Decker Challenge has changed distances, but has settled on the 13.1 mile distance, closely following a traditional training run for the famed UT cross-country team.
A feared and famous part of the annual Distance Challenge, this year’s race adheres to its traditional roots by way of its route and time of year. Last year’s race required a cap on registration, and 2012 may see the same. The success of the Austin Fit Distance Challenge has brought a dependable contingent of dedicated runners year after year.
The Decker Challenge is held in conjunction with the Travis County Brown Santa 5K and Kids K.
