DESCRIPTION OF EVENT
This is a 4 person team event. Teams may register and participate as a First Responder or a Civilian Team. Within those 2 categories, you may register as an All Male, All Female or Co-Ed team. Kick off of the challenge begins promptly at 8:00AM at the Berks County Fraternal Order of Police Memorial . After the kick off, different teams will begin in waves. Teams will be faced with mental, physical and tactical challenges, many of which represent the tasks First Responders face while on the job.
All competitors are invited to join us back at Corps Fitness after the conclusion of the event for a fun After-Party.
The After-Party begins at Corps Fitness immediately following finish of last team in challenge. All challenge participants and first responder volunteers will receive a FREE delicious buffet meal courtesy of our sponsor Mission BBQ of Wyomissing. Family and friends are encouraged to join us at the After Party and can pre-order and pre-purchase a buffet ticket on participants registration page or in person at Corps Fitness for a cost of $10. There will be a limited number of extra buffet tickets available the day of challenge; order ahead of time to secure your ticket!

***We all know the risks first responders must take while on the job and the dangers they face. Tragically, many of our first responder finest have lost their lives while protecting and serving. We’d like to honor those men and women during our challenge on October 28th.
If you know a fallen first responder that you would like honored, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org, that person’s name, end of watch, and department for which they served.
Special dedication signs for these men and women will be placed along the challenge trail for us all to remember them and their ultimate sacrifice.
We look forward to a well-attended, well-executed event. But we couldn’t support our First Responders without the help of Volunteers! If you’d like to volunteer your time for this special event, please contact Melissa Hazlett at email@example.com. We thank you in advance for helping us to make this a spectacular day!
