The 5 & Dime Challenge combines 2 of the most popular races in Concord to create a unique and fun event.  The 5 & Dime will recognize athletes who complete both the Bill Luti 5 Miler and the Granite State 10 Miler.  Every athlete who completes both races will receive a special award after they cross the finish line of the Granite State 10 Miler.

PARTICIPANTS IN THE 5 & DIME CHALLENGE MUST REGISTER FOR THE CHALLENGE AT THE TIME OF REGISTERING FOR THE GRANITE STATE 10 MILER.  ADDITIONALLY, YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE 5 & DIME BY AUGUST 15.  This will allow us to plan properly. THERE IS NO EXTRA COST TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 5 & Dime Challenge.

Participants will receive their award after crossing the finish line at the Granite State 10 miler.

The Granite State Racing Team's coach, professional triathlete Amber Ferreira, has put together a training plan for the 5 & Dime Challenge.  It has specific workouts for every day of the week leading up to both races, and includes the Tuesday night track workouts that the Granite State Racing Team holds each week at Memorial Field in Concord.  If you don't live in Concord, you can substitute another track-type or speed workout of your choosing on Tuesdays.
