Plum Creek Popsicle Run will include the option to test your skills at 6 functional challenges along the race course.  Camp Gladiator Trainers are preparing 3 levels of each exercise so this will be something anyone can do!

On July 4, this 4-miler event, with optional Camp Gladiator Functional Challenge, will start and finish at Negley Elementary in the Plum Creek neighborhood in Kyle, Texas. Participants will walk or run by and through some of the features of this master-planned development, including the pools, the golf course, the walking trail, the newest section of housing, and the playgrounds.

For added fun, this run will include some functional challenges, at ability-appropriate levels, along the course. You can do none or one or more of the challenges prepared for you.   Frozen treats will reward the participants at the finish line.

In addition to the four-mile course, there will also be 3K and 1K options, so there is something for everybody in this family-friendly event.
