On Your Mark...

There are lots of reasons to sign up for one of Compete America’s “Run to Win America” 5K races this spring (March 23-June 1). First, you prove you can actually run 3.1 miles. Second, the ridiculous number of health benefits you’ll receive from all that running. Third, you'll raise money for Project Hope Worldwide. But perhaps the most important reason is that you can help your state bring home the title of speediest state in the nation. (Go Iowa!)

Billed as the only the only 5K race where states compete against one another for national titles, you can bet it’s not just about being the fastest state. Other competitive categories include Fastest Age Groups (seven total), Most Runners Per Age Group, Fastest Male, Fastest Female, plus several more “fun categories” that haven’t yet been posted on the site.

Winners don’t take home any cash prizes, but they’ll definitely be rewarded with lots of medals, trophies and T-shirts. Visit to run to win, run for health and run for hope.
