Race makes federal case of fund raising

RUNNING

August 04, 1992|By Michael Reeb | Michael Reeb,Staff Writer

In keeping with the spirit of the race, Jeff Darman, director of the 12th-annual Nike Capital Challenge, says he has been "leaking quality items since 1981."

Information he is leaking now concerns the Capital Challenge, a three-mile loop race around Washington's East Potomac Park on Sept. 17. It is restricted to teams captained by an elected federal official, a cabinet appointee, a federal judge or a journalist.

"I don't want the race to be 2,000 people," Darman said last week from his office in Arlington, Va. "We try to control the number, but, obviously, the voters help to control the growth sometimes, too. One of the examples of that is Beverly Byron, [Maryland's sixth district representative who was defeated in the March primary]. Obviously, this will be her last year [at least as captain].

"Some of our past participants have included Dan Quayle and Al Gore. Gore has run the past few years. And Quayle ran when he was a senator."

Teams can obtain entry forms and information by writing Jeff Darman, Nike Capital Challenge, 2101 Wilson Blvd., Suite 437, Arlington, Va. 22201 or by calling (703) 276-0056.

The race benefits the District of Columbia Special Olympics.
