The 2015 Mercer Health 5K Challenge is ready to kick off at the Zuma 5K this Saturday, June 20th.  Registeration begins at 7:30 AM with the race beginning at 9:00.

As in the past, all participants that compete in at least six of the eight events will be eligible for year end age group awards and a Mercer Health 5K Challenge long-sleeved tech shirt. If you are planning to compete in at least six races please submit your shirt size as soon as possible at a race or by clicking the Submit Shirt Size tab on the left side of this page.

Also new this year, all participants will have extra incentive to run all eight races.  As each participant that completes the entire eight race Challenge will receive a gender specific dri-run half-zip runners pullover.  The only way to receive this special item with the official Challenge logo will be by competing in all eight Challenge races. Of course, if you are not at Zuma you won't be able to earn this special item.

The following week the Challenge will move on to the Maria Stein Country Fest on Sunday, June 28th.  Entry forms for all Challenge races are available on this website on the Entry Forms tab.

Special thanks goes out to the race directors and the following sponsors for their support:

Looking forward to a great Zuma 5K and a fantastic Challenge season!!
