About This Activity

Participants will have to bench press a percentage of their body weight. Here is the beakdown for benchpress percentage:
Age 13-39: Male: 100%   Female: 70%
Age 40-49: Male: 90%     Female: 60%
Age 50 and over: Male: 80%   Female: 50%
For every repetition you achieve, we will subtract 30 seconds from their 5K run time. There is a short break after the lifting portion of the event and then the participants run a 5K that takes place starting and ending at the Health Science Campus (HSC). Each top athlete will receive a prize during the awards ceremony following the event.
Registration will begin at 9:30AM followed by weigh-ins and bench press. The race will begin at 10:45AM. Please arrive at an appropriate time so that you are ready to begin by then!
This year, we are introducing a new "team" option where one (1) person will perform the bench press and another person will run the 5K. This option is great for people who have always wanted to participate but did not because they did not want to bench press or run the 5K!

This year, the WVU Student Rec Center will help sponsor the event, so after the race, participants will have the option to tie dye your Pump N Run shirt!
This year we have chosen WVU Children's Hospital to donate all of the proceeds from this event. Pre-registration fees will be $18 for club members and $20 for non-club members. You must register no later than April 6th for a guaranteed t-shirt. All same day registration fees will be $25 and a t-shirt is not guaranteed.
Also, donations from participants are welcome! Please bring cash or a check to the event!
*Team results will be seperated from the individual results.
