Race Information

The Arnold 5K Pump & Run, which tests overall fitness by measuring both strength and endurance, is the largest race of its kind in the United States.

The race will have a record 1,000 competitors when the 2018 Arnold 5K Pump & Run is held on Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 10:30am. A stand-alone Arnold 5K run is also held on Sunday, March 4 at 9:15am.

Athletes from more than 30 states participated in the 2017 5K Pump & Run. In the competition, participants bench press a percentage of their body weight. Each lift (up to a max of 30) reduces their 5-kilometer run time by 30 seconds.

The Arnold 5K Pump & Run has 10 age / gender divisions. Depending on age, men must bench press 60 to 100 percent of their weight, and women 40 to 70 percent of their weight. U.S. Marine Corps drill instructors oversee the bench press and inspire lifters to their maximum.

Weigh-in and bench press begin at 7:00 a.m. Sunday, March 4. The running portion of the 5K Pump & Run begins at 10:30 a.m. Spectators are welcome and the outdoor portion of the event is free. Admission to the “pump” portion of the Arnold 5K Pump & Run is included in the $15 daily ticket ($10 in advance) to the Arnold Sports Festival.
