From the ultramarathoner to the noncompetitive recreational runner to the walker, we all move at our own speed. The Utica First Insurance Push URself is a challenge for every pace because ultimately your own pace is what you are trying to beat. With so many virtual mileage challenges out there, now is the perfect time for a change of pace and to Push URself to get faster.
Push URself is an individual competition to improve your pace for a specific distance over four weeks in June. Upon signup, you will submit your target time you want to improve for a goal distance of 1mi, 5km, 5mi, 10km, or 15km. Runners will run the same route each week for consistency to try to improve your time each week. Walkers will submit their cumulative weekly distance. Runners can run as many times as you want each week, but can only submit one time a week. Submissions must be received by each Sunday night throughout the month of June.
It is free to participate, but $10 will get you a Utica Roadrunner exclusive limited edition neck gaiter of your choice. $15 will get you two gaiters. You also have the option to pruchase official Push URself gear. Samples of Glukos Energy and BOOM! Energy bars will be available when you pick up your swag (while supplies last). A portion of the proceeds will benefit local businesses.
We all could use a coach to encourage us to stay motivated and on track. That’s where the Facebook group and Strava Club will help. Post your selfies and inspiration to keep everyone moving toward their goal. Weekly prizes will be awarded to participants along the way!
Push URself will start June 1st and end June 28, but registration will remain open until June 14th.
