What is the Triple Crown Challenge (TCC)?
The challenge is a series of THREE races:
· Abe's Amble 10K/Abe's Army
· Shoreline Classic 15K
· Frostbite Festival 10M
What are the rules?
In addition to being a current SRRC member and an Abe’s Army Participant or Leader you must also:
1. Complete Abe’s Amble 10K
2. Complete Shoreline Classic 15k FOR THE FIRST TIME
3. Complete Frostbite Classic 10 Miler FOR THE FIRST TIME
How much does it cost to join the Triple Crown?
There is no fee for signing up for the Triple Crown Challenge. You are responsible for the race entry fees for the Shoreline and the Frostbite.
Are there training programs for the Shoreline and Frostbite to help me?
We encourage you to join the SRRC Members Facebook group. There are informal runs planned all the time – especially longer runs on the weekends! In October, information will be posted about the Frost Toes training group for the Frostbite Festival 10 miler.
What happens once I complete all three races?
You will receive recognition by the Club, a goody bag and receive FREE ENTRY to the Lincoln Presidential Half Marathon.
What happens if I have to drop out of the Triple Crown?
In the event that you have to drop out of the challenge, please let us know. If you drop out prior to the Shoreline, you are still eligible to sign up next year. If you run the shoreline but not the Frostbite, you are ineligible to sign up next year.
Do I have to finish the races in a certain amount of time?
NO! All you have to do is finish all three races.
If I participate in the Mini Challenge this year, am I eligible for the Triple Crown next year?
If you meet all the criteria and complete the mini challenge you are still eligible for the Triple Crown the following year!
Is there a deadline for signing up?
YES! The deadline to sign up for the Triple Crown is October 23, 2023.
PLEASE NOTE: Any entries received AFTER October 23, 2023 will not be accepted. Therefore, if you ran the Shoreline 15K but neglected to sign up for the Triple Crown Challenge in time, you will not be eligible to participate for the Triple Crown Challenge the following year. There will be no exceptions.
