Choose from two exciting events. The Pump and Run tests your multisport ability, and gives competitors the chance to shave time off of their 5k run based on the number of bench presses accomplished. The other other option is to compete in the 5k run only.
Rules A runner's time will be based on how many times he/she can bench press the weight for their gender and age category. * There are four lifting divisions * Runners not competing for prize money, may scale their weight Men 39 and under - Contestants will bench press 145lbs Men 40 and over - Contestants will bench press 115lbs Women 39 and under - Contestants will bench press 65lbs Women 40 and over - Contestants will bench press 45lbs Those participating in the 5k only will not be competing in the above divisions. Time Deduction 20 seconds per rep will be deducted from the competitor's final 5k time for the Pump and Run Division. The maximum deduction is 15 minutes (or 45 total reps) Lifting Technique Lift starts with the bar in the extended position. Feet must remain in contact with the floor throughout the lift (no hooking bench support with feet/legs). Bar must touch the chest and be fully extended on each press - stopping terminates the lift. No bouncing bar off chest. Shoulder and rear must stay in contact with the bench during lifts. If necessary, plates may be placed under lifters' feet. No baggy clothing, belts, wraps or lifting suits. Decisions of our judges are final. Lifting Time Participants will begin by completing their max rep bench press. Registration will begin at 11:30am and Bench Press will begin at 12pm. Race will commence after all racers have completed their lift (approximately 1:00 pm) The event will take place rain or shine. If the forecast, calls for rain, then the lifting portion will take place at Crossfit Hoboken at 38 Jackson Street Hoboken, NJ 07030.
