The Pump: Participants can choose (not mandatory) to bench press a percentage of their body weight according to age and gender. Each repetition that is performed correctly with proper form will receive 30 seconds off their 5K time. The official spotters will rule over the correct number of repetitions achieved during the lift. The 5 points of contact during the bench press should be maintained: head, upper back, buttocks, and both feet. No long pauses or noticeable rest is permitted during the pump.
The Run: The 5K run will be run or walked on the streets of downtown Erie. The race will begin and end near the parking lot of the Carnival Athletic Pavilion on 4th Street.
