Active Southern West Virginia (Active SWV) is a non-profit organization working to remove barriers to physical activity in Nicholas, Fayette, Raleigh, and Summers counties by providing free physical activity programs in communities, parks, schools, local governments, and workplaces. This Truck-Pull Series is a way to fundraise to support these free program costs. Additional donations and sponsors are always welcome.
What is a Truck-Pull?
It's literally tying a rope to a truck and teams of people work together to move the truck a pre-determined distance in the fastest time. Trust us, there's more strategy in this than you might think (and we can help with those tips too)!
Teams of 6 people will hold onto a large diameter rope attached to the front of a fire truck. The team will be facing the truck pulling backwards. Think of this as tug-of-war but with a truck as your competition. The truck will be idling out of gear and the brake will be released when the start signal is given.
Co-workers, cross-fit members, businesses, friends, families, high school alumni, co-ed teams, worship friends, police departments, EMS teams, Fire department teams -- are all welcome to participate.
