The ACLI Capital Challenge three-mile road race returns to Washington, D.C.'s Anacostia Park on Wednesday, May 16 at 8:00 a.m. Desiree Linden, 2018 Boston Marathon winner, two-time Olympian and two-time collegiate All American, will serve as the official "whistle blower," starting the runners on their way. She will then jump in and run from the back of the pack. The event attracts scores of members of Congress, high-ranking political appointees, Generals, Admirals, television correspondents, print and web reporters, Federal Judges and other Washington VIPs who will captain and compete on over 140 teams. The ACLI Capital Challenge benefits the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. All entry fees and additional donations from the race sponsors will be used to provide a life-changing Fidelco Guide Dog and services to a blinded veteran or immediate family member to support increased independence, mobility and safety.
