How it Works
A Power 5k is a time trial race. You will complete 50 reps of deadlift followed by 50 reps of bench press, then pull-ups, then run a 5k.
The race is electronically clocked by an active race timing system with each athlete wearing a timing chip. Your time is the total time from your first deadlift rep to when you cross the finish line at the end of the 5k. Splits are recorded after each event (e.g. you will have a deadlift time, a bench press time, a pull-up time and a 5k time.)
Athletes are started in waves on multiple sets of equipment in lanes. Staggered start times are used to ensure there are no backups on the course.
