March 24 update: To protect the safety of the race participants and volunteers, the 2020 ACLI Capital Challenge has been rescheduled for Thursday, September 24, 2020. As we plan for the new race date, we will continue to closely monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding COVID-19.
We are hopeful that by late September, we will once again be celebrating health and fitness at the ACLI Capital Challenge.
ABOUT The Cause
This year, the ACLI Capital Challenge will benefit Junior Achievement USA. ACLI believes strongly in Junior Achievement's purpose to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Through our support of Junior Achievement, we will teach the next generation of American workers the importance of planning early for retirement.

ACLI Capital Challenge remembers former Sen. Richard Lugar, who died April 28, 2019
Sen. Lugar ran in the inaugural Capital Challenge race in 1981 and competed in every subsequent Capital Challenge through 2012. No member of Congress has run in more Capital Challenge races than Sen. Lugar (31).
Sen. Lugar’s team won the Senate competition several times, most recently in 2009.
The award given to the winning team across all divisions at the ACLI Capital Challenge is called the Richard G. Lugar Fastest Overall Team Award.
