Is your business, book club, fitness group or family the fittest on the farm?
Register your group in the Fitness Challenge and then begin encouraging your employees, friends, family and others to enter the Farmers 5000 and select your group from the list of those participating. The group with the most entries to its name wins fun gifts from Wheat Ridge businesses and of course, major bragging rights. Let the Farmer 5000 be a team building opportunity; a way to create awareness for your business and services; or a means to give back to the community that supports you. Find your group on the drop-down menu on the registration page. Don't see your group? Go ahead and add it - it's free to join! Need more information? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RUNNERS PARTICIPATING ON BEHALF OF A GROUP IN THE FITNESS CHALLENGE MUST REGISTER ONLINE ONLY. ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY, SEPT. 18.
*One more thing - Elementary Schools and WRHS school groups are excluded from winning the Fitness Challenge. Instead, area elementary schools compete for the cash prizes generously donated by the Wheat Ridge Optimists in the Elementary School Challenge. WRHS school groups should encourage runners to select their group from the list of school groups and $10 of their entry will go directly to your group.
The top male and female runners will receive $100 CASH. First and second runners-up will receive a gift certificate from Runners Roost Lakewood, 7978 W. Alameda Ave, Lakewood. Overall winners are excluded from age group awards.
Top 3 male and female runners in all categories will receive a gift certificate from Apple Ridge Cafe. Age categories are 8 and under, 9-12, 13-15, every five years thereafter, 80 and over.
All entrants are eligible for prize drawings at the race finish, courtesy of area businesses (must be present to win).
