Power2Hour Challenge at Trailside Park

On Saturday, May 30, CooperWynn Events will host a Power2Hour Challenge at Trailside Park from 7-9 a.m.

The Challenge includes a 6-mile run and various field drills, including body weight and resistance exercises.

"It’s a 10K, just a different way," CooperWynn Creactivity Guru Whitney Kozlowski said. "It’s a mile run, then they come back to the field and do core work — push-ups, high-intensity interval exercises — and then head back out for another mile."

Both during and after the challenge, there will be music and food for participants to enjoy.

During the challenge, participants will do as much as they can in the two-hour time limit. Once the two hours are up, a buzzer will sound to signal the end of the challenge.

"We have a big time clock and it starts right at 7 a.m. and finishes right at 9," Kozlowski said. "The buzzer goes off at 9 and everybody is done."

Kozlowski said the event, which will run a few times this summer, is a great way to start a summer day.

"This is the third year and we try to do it once a month in the summer," she said. "It’s something we find is really accessible to people. We cap it at 50 people. You can get in, get a good workout and do it with good friends. We encourage people to come be active and have a lot of fun with it."

Athletes of all levels, from beginner to expert, are invited to take part in Saturday’s challenge.

The cost of the event is $22 and registration is now open at http://www.cooperwynnevents.com/challenge . Registration closes at 5 p.m. on May 28. If there is still room available, day-of registration costs $30.
