Since we had the park all day for the picnic, Dan Horvath decided we should use it to run for 6 hours. That’s logical, right?
34 brave MCRRs showed up. Some ran the whole 6 hours, others just a couple times around. Good times were most certainly had by all.
Special thanks to Will Bertemes who donated the custom Brooks hats for the first 25 registered. We love loot! And to the Medina Half for dropping off some loot bags and most importantly WATER! And, of course, to Dan Horvath for putting it all together, and Ron Ross, Renee Harden and Rob Lisy for counting our laps. Maybe there were others, I only ran 8 laps so I wasn’t there to see all the volunteers. 😉
ALSO, to John McCarroll for tirelessly taking photos, once again. They can be seen here: 6 Hour Photos by John McCarroll
A great time was had by all, both runners and volunteers alike, at the 2013 MCRR Pump & Run 5k. We couldn’t have been luckier with the weather, either!
A huge thanks to our sponsors and volunteers who made the race possible, and to all the competitors who came out to inspire us all.
Results for this event can be found under the Races -> Pump & Run tab.
John McCarroll graciously photographed this event, and those photos can be found on his SmugMug page. Thanks, John!

- Hands must be inside or touching the smooth rings on the bar. No suicide grip.
- During weigh in minimum attire must be shorts, t-shirt/sports bra, and socks.
- NO BOUNCING BAR OFF CHEST! Rep will not count if bar is bounced off chest.
- Maximum number of reps counting towards Pump and Run is 30. Each rep counts as 30 seconds off your race time.
- No bench shirts, no elbow wraps. Wrist wraps are allowed.
- If you have a physical disability that prevents you from full arm extension during bench please speak to a race official prior to your lift.
- Weigh in will be without shoes and rounded to nearest 5 pound increment. ( ie- 151 lbs will list as 150 lbs and 153 will list as 155 lbs)
