What's The Challenge?

It's time to put those running shoes on because the competition is ready to begin! Test your abilities throughout our 5K season as you strive to become our 2016 Champion.

How does it work? As you compete in the races, 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.

How do you participate in the Challenge? The answer is simple: participate in each race. We will keep track of your results and your Challenge standings. Complete 6 of the 8 Challenge race events and you will earn a Mercer Health 5K Challenge shirt and be eligible for season end age group awards. Participate in all 8 Challenge events and earn the "All Eight" award, a 5K Challenge half-zip pullover.  Check details here!

No doubt it will be another fun and exciting 5K Challenge season. Whether you're an avid runner or someone looking for motivation to get active we look forward to your participation! Contact Us with any questions.
