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 race...you 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.
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 first event of the day: the 1 miler, may be a warm up for some but for others... they'll be Running For The Beer! For most, the reward will be able to continue on (must be across the finish line in under 11 minutes to move on to the 5K event).
The composite time of the 5K & 10K make up your FINAL SCORE!
Overall, Masters Overall and Age Group awards will be also be awarded based on composite run times for the 5K and 10K events.
The Progressive Sweet 16 is the 3rd event in the 2021 Dick's Sporting Good's Family Fit Series. DSG supports the event with gift cards for Overall, Masters Overall and Age Group Winners.
Registration for these other family fun events are open or will be opening soon!
