Edge Body Boot Camp and the City of La Vista have teamed up once again for the 3rd annual Edge Body Pump & Run and 5k. The Pump and Run is a unique combination of weight lifting and running, offered to all racers no matter gender or ability. Pump and Run participants will compete in a bench press competition as well as a 5k run (see our event descriptions - which are also listed below). Don't lift weights? Don't worry runners, we have you covered too! We will also be offering the 5k as a separate event to those who just want to run and not participate in the bench press competition.
The Edge Body Pump & Run and 5k will be donating a portion of the proceeds to a local charity. More information to come.

Pump & Run:
Those registered for the Pump & Run event will participate in the “Pump”, a bench competition, and the “Run”, a 5k run. The bench competition will take place Friday, October 5 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at Edge Body Boot Camp. Participants will perform as many bench reps as they can. Women will be benching 50% (or half) of their bodyweight and men will be benching 75% (or 3/4) of their bodyweight during the bench portion of the event (example: a 140 lb female would bench 70 lbs as many times as she can. A 200 lb male would bench 150 lbs as many times as he can). These Pump & Run participants will then run in the 5k on Saturday, October 6 at 10:00 AM. Race start and finish will be at the Infusion Brewing Company Tap Room. Their total reps and 5k time will be calculated together. Each successful bench rep will result in 1:00 minute off their 5k time. Please note: someone may have a “negative” 5k time if they bench more reps than the time it takes them to run the 5k (example: 35 reps and a 5k time of 29 min. 15 sec. would equal a total Pump & Run time of -6 min. 15 sec.). Packet pick-up will be Friday, October 5 at Edge Body Boot Camp from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM, which will coincide with the "Pump" portion of the event. Participants can arrive and participate at any time during the 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM window. Racer check-in for the "Run" portion will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday. The top 3 lowest total times in each Pump & Run division (male & female) will be awarded for this event.
Those registered for the 5k Run will participate in only the 5k that will take place on Saturday, October 6 at 10:00 AM. Race start and finish will be at the Infusion Brewing Company Tap Room. An optional packet pick-up for the 5k run will be Friday, October 6 at Edge Body Boot Camp from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Racer check-in/packet pick-up will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday. Top 3 finishers in each 5k division (male & female) will be awarded for this event.
