A Call to Arms for the King Crab Challenge

 In Uncategorized

By order of King Corrigan we are searching the Kingdom for new members of the Royal Court. Only the strongest and bravest shall attempt to join!

There is no question that the members of the running kingdom love the challenge of a quest. And the only thing that they love more than a challenge is the SWAG they get for accomplishing that quest. Corrigan Sports is ready to throw down its latest gauntlet and summon all runners to take THE KING CRAB CHALLENGE in 2015!

Members of the kingdom who finish the Frederick Running Festival (May 3, 2015), the Baltimore 10-Miler (June 6, 2015) and the Baltimore Running Festival (Oct. 17, 2015) will join the Royal Court and be dubbed King Crabs, taking home treasures worthy only of royalty!

What is it?

The King Crab Challenge is a test of stamina and bravery over long distances and an extended time period. Runners must complete the half-marathon at the Frederick Run Fest, the Baltimore 10-Miler and the full or half-marathon at the Baltimore Run Fest.

Who is eligible?

Any brave soul who thinks they can withstand the trials and tribulations surrounding three of the King’s most proud possessions, in territories that stretch across the far reaches of His kingdom.

What do I get?

Citizens who complete the three tasks as laid out by the King will be granted access to royal events and will be lavished with prizes and awards.

How do I sign up?

Those wishing to take the challenge should select the King Crab Challenge options from the Frederick Running Festival registration site. (see below if you have registered for the three races separately.)


A ROYAL GIFT (new this year!)

A Medal Rack for which to proudly display their royal treasures. The rack will mount on thy castle wall and bears the official crest that the King has bestowed upon the members of His court as well as the names of each of the battles you will have completed by the end of the quest. The hooks of the display will resemble Crab Claws in homage to the suit of armour worn by the King’s favorite bay-dwelling crustacean. ALSO NEW IN 2015! Members of the Royal Court will be able to collect their medal rack on race day at the completion of the Baltimore Running Festival.

FOUR MEDALS (new this year!)

The King was so proud of his citizens who help defend is Kingdom in 2014 that he decided to add an additional treasure as reward this year. Those who enlist in the King Crab Challenge will receive a medal at the Baltimore 10-Miler in addition to one from each of the two running festivals as well as the Maryland Double medal (awarded at the Baltimore Running Festival)– to proudly wear as signs of their bravery.


The King will set forth exclusive deals on other CSE races, official merchandise as well as other special savings from race partners and sponsors. These will come throughout the year to help you keep your sword sharp and help you maintain on the path to success. Start your savings by signing up for the King Crab at one time on the Frederick Running Festival registration site. (thus saving $10 off registering for the races separately as well as saving your energy for battle as you will only have to keystroke your information one time!)


An Invitation to the Royal Banquet– All those who are dubbed King Crabs will be celebrated at a special feast open only to members of the King’s Royal Court and their family and guests. This event will be held in Nov. of 2015 and will truly celebrate your accomplishments throughout the year. (2014 banquet was held at Medieval Times in Baltimore.  Looking at new locations for 2015.)
