The Warrior Relay was created from a need for something new and exciting. We kept hearing people looking for new adventure runs but everything was the same out there. We set out to create an event that combines fitness with a social fun and true teamwork aspect. We also wanted to include a variety of sports in the event. So while there is running/walking; there are also many other aspects of various sports included in the challenges.
What are the Challenges during the day? There is a "Buy - In" team challenge that will start the Warrior Relay. This will consist of basic movements such as sit-up, squats, pushups, and others. Then the 1st challenge will involve Medicine ball tosses over the goal posts in the endzone. The weights will be 14 lb, 20 lbs, and 30 lb. The 2nd challenge is a partner deadlift + Burpee 6:00 AMRAP. The 3rd challenge will be a barbell Ground - To - Overhead ladder (any style acceptable). The 4th challenge is a field combine challenge of long jump and vertical jump. These workouts may be scaled or skipped!
How does the scoring work? 1 point is given for each mile ran by a person on your team. Points are also awarded for coming in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd during the challenges (separated by male and female). 1st = 3pts 2nd = 2pts 3rd = 1pt.
What are the rules to win? Someone from your team must be on the track running/walking at all times. Nobody can run two consecutive miles. During the day you have the option to send someone from your team (asssigned at check in) to a challenge in order to score more points for your team. The team with the most points at the end of the day wins.
Who can participate? Anybody 16 and older may sign up. (if younger than 18 years of age then an adult needs to sign the waiver to particpate).
What if I can't run? Anybody of any fitness level can enter! Anybody can walk or run the relay and the challenges may be skipped( if one can't do them) or they can be scaled to accomodate various fitness levels!

What is Honor Flight Network? Honor Flight Network is a national foundation that started in Springfield Ohio. Honor Flight Network receives donations to fly veterans to their own memorials in Washington D.C. These veterans have fought for our freedom and we believe they should see their memorials. These trips for the veterans are completely free including travel, hotel, and busing to get around all memorials. To learn more about Honor Flight Network or to donate directly please visit www.honorflight.org There is also a documentary DVD for sale through the website that truly shows how much a short trip means to these veterans.
What is Feed Our Heroes Foundation? The Feed Our Heroes Foundation is a growing project started in Ohio that receives donations to feed veterans. They have large dinner gatherings on main holidays, but also provides veterans with food if needed through the year. It is a simple concept that literally saves veterans from going hungry. A number of these veterans are wounded but they dont have to be in order to receive help.
