This is a RACE and a CHALLENGE all in ONE, and for the right athlete a whole lot of FUN!
Willow Running is happy to bring back the Progressive Sweet 16 that once again will be part of the Dick's Sporting Goods Family Fit Series.
Not your average must finish the mile (warmup run) in under 11 minutes to be able to move onto the next event- the 5K; finish that in under 35 minutes and you will be able to move to the final event- a 10K!
Final "score" is a composite of your 5K & 10K times only but don't blow off that first mile because it's got to be in less than 11 minutes and we have some fun prizes for the first few finishers of that mile. Live, Laugh and Run is the theme for this year's Progressive Sweet 16 and we embrace all 3 with equal weight, especially during these unique times we find ourselves in...

For 2022 we are planning a fun post race party so be sure to allow yourself some time before hitting the road home! Details to follow. 

The Courses

All 3 running events will be held on the Empire Trail starting in Mohawk, NY

Start & Finish will be at the gazebo adjacent to the historic Herkimer Church.

The Rewards
