About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Wounded Warrior Gold Bar Club 5k supports both the Wounded Warrior Foundation and the Wilkes University Gold Bar Club. The Gold Bar club is an organization that supports Wilkes University students that plan on earning a comission in the United States Air Force. The event has two categories, a regular 5k walk/run category and the pump and run category. The pump and run allows participants to shave time off their 5k run time by bench pressing their bodyweight. For every Repition the participant will take 15 seconds off their finishing time.
