Team Challenge


Join us for the Annual Heroes Team Challenges!

Heroes Half Marathon and 5K Team Challenge offers an exciting opportunity for registered participants to create teams to compete against each other. We will be hosting the annual Heroes Team Challenge during the Heroes Half Marathon and 5K! We encourage Police, Fire and EMT departments s to promote a healthy lifestyle by rounding up members to get fit and come on out to run the Heroes Half or 5K while showing some TEAM spirit!


Community Spirit Competition

Awards will be presented to the First Responder Departments with the greatest number of members who register for Heroes on Hines. Team members may compete in Heroes Half marathon or 5K to be included in this competition. Participation numbers will be a combination of First Responders and runners/walkers who register "In Support of First Responders."

There will be a $750 cash prize to the First Responder Department with the most participants supporting their department. Second place will receive $500 and $250 for third place departments. Deadline for registration for the Community Spirit award is noon on Thursday race week.

Wayne County Cup (Half Marathon distance only)
Results are computed by adding a First Responders team’s four fastest chip times in the half marathon distance. The team with the fastest accumulated time will be declared the winner. ALL MEMBERS OF THE TEAM MUST BE CURRENTLY EMPLOYEED BY A POLICE OR FIRE DEPARTMENT.

Winning teams will receive inscribed plaques after the race.

    Fastest team in the Half Marathon distance will be awarded the Wayne County Cup (WCC). The winner team retains possession of the trophy until the next year's Heroes Half Marathon.
