You must participate in at least six of the seven events to be eligible to receive Challenge running apparel and year end awards.
If you are new to the series and wonder how it works, here are the details:
As you compete in the events, points will be earned based upon your finishing time and how you place within your age group. These points are accumulated throughout the 5K season. Participate in six of the seven Challenge events and you will be eligible to receive Challenge running apparel. If you finish in the top three of your age group, you will also be eligible for year end awards, All apparel and awards will be presented at the Buzzards Glory 5K.
Perhaps greater than the awards you may receive will be the camaraderie of new friends you will make during the Challenge season along with the pride of competing in the Mercer Health 5K Challenge.
Whether you are an avid runner or someone looking for motivation to be more active, we look forward and encourage you to join us for the Challenge series! All runners and walkers are welcome to participate. Feel free to click on the Contact Us tab with questions you may have.
