What's The Challenge?
The 14th Annual Mercer Health 5K Challenge series will once again feature eight 5K's throughout Mercer County over nine weeks. The series begins on Saturday, June 17th at the Zuma 5K and will conclude with the Challenge awards presentation at the August 12th Burkett 5K. The Challenge schedule is posted on this site. All are welcome to participate.
How does it work? As you compete in the events, points will be earned based upon your finishing time and how you place within your group. These points are accumulated throughout the 5K season and the winner is determined following the results of the final race.

Complete in 6 of the 8 Challenge events and you will earn a Mercer Health 5K Challenge shirt and be eligible for season end age group awards.
