The Fifth Third River Bank Run has a reality team.
The Road Warriors team consists of both veteran and novice runners who serve as ambassadors for the Fifth Third River Bank Run. They are also challenged to try new training methods, test new gear and participate in the 25K road race on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
Road Warriors are required to share their journey with the community by blogging on a weekly basis at www.53riverbankrun.com about their progress and how the challenges impacted their performance. Out of 200+ applications, 10 participants were ultimately were chosen to be 2012 Fifth Third River Bank Run Road Warriors.
“I'm a Road Warrior,” says runner Kristen Sisson. “We are a team of five men and five women who train together.”
There's a twist though: each team member has chosen a charity to raise money for with his or her journey. This year they are representing Paws With A Cause, Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan, Hope Network, Gilda's Club and the American Red Cross.
"We're all honored to be a part of the Fifth Third River Bank Run Road Warrior program,” says Sisson. “The chance to raise funds for these very local and wonderful charities is just a huge bonus."
