We will be having Pump N' Run Events for the 5K, 10K, Half and Full Marathon at the Flying PIG Marathon in 2015! We will also have our 4th Annual American Hero Pump Challenge , which is a Free Bench Press Event, to honor all Firefighters, Police and Military (active-only).
Here's how the Pump N' Run works... you Bench Press a percentage of your body weight, using a formula based upon a gender and age handicap, and receive 30 seconds off your run time for each repetition (5K and 10K PNR Events), or two minutes off your run time for each bench press repetition (Half and Full Marathon PNR Events). There is a maximum of 15 minutes off run time for PNR5K/10K, and maximum of 100 minutes off run time for PNRHalf/Full Marathon. Select "Lift Charts" on left hand Tool Bar to see your Lift Weight (a Lighter Lift-Weight Formula is used for Half and Full Marathon Pump N' Run Events!).
There will be recognition for Fastest Net Run Times, and Personal Achievement Medals provided such as... Bronze/10 Pump Club Medal, Silver/20 Pump Club and Gold/30 Pump Club.
