What is the Firecracker Pump N Run?

*Registration for the Pump N Run will close Tuesday 6/27 at midnight.


The Firecracker Pump and Run is an event which consists of bench pressing and a 5K.

Participants receive a deduction from their overall 5K time for each repetition of the bench press.

The person with the lowest adjusted run time wins the event.

The "pump" portion will be held on Wednesday June 28th at HAC (6PM - 7PM)

The 5K event will be held on Thursday June 29th at 6:30PM with the 5K for Fireworks

If you register for the Pump N Run, your time will be scored in the Pump N Run Division.

(Not the overall 5k age group awards)

Awards will be given for the Top 5 Males and Top 5 Females.


How does the Pump N Run work?

Participants will bench press a percentage of their weight for max reps.

Each rep (up to a max of 30) reduces your 5K run time by 30 seconds.

Participants must weigh in on the provided scale the day they are to bench press.

Event representatives will calculate the amount to be bench-pressed.

The lifting weight will be rounded to the nearest five pounds.

Only full bench presses are counted. Bar must touch the participant’s chest.
