Canonball Pump & Run
Saturday • August 3rd • 7:00am
Sponsored by the Winterset Rotary Club
This Winterset tradition is a unique athletic event—participants are required to bench press their body weight (or a % of) as many times as possible, then run a mile or a 5K. Each successful repetition of the bench press earns competitors 15 seconds off their mile or 5K finish time. The winner of each age division will be the fastest time after deductions are figured in, thus demonstrating both endurance and strength. Proceeds from this event go to the Winterset Rotary Scholarship Fund Youth Exchange & the Winterset School Activity Fund. Contact Roger Queck to get registered. You can find him at Pro Team Insurance on the square.
