Team Out There Monthly Challenge

Hi friends! I’m a contributing writer for Out There Monthly, and I’m helping them coordinate a new program, the Team OTM Challenge, which encourages people to complete at least one participating race each month from May through October. We’re working with race directors of more than 30 events (and counting) in 2016 to provide a diverse selection of runs, rides, triathlons and other adventure races at discounted prices. You can sign up as an individual or as a 4-person team, and in addition to general fun, you’ll get a tech shirt, cool swag, prize drawings, and free beer (while supplies last) at our kick-off and wrap-up parties. Let me know if you’re interested or have any questions about the program. Cheers! –Janelle McCabe,
