Description
The 1st Annual TejasFitness Challenge will take place at Retama Park on Saturday, April 30, 2016. This is a unique race. To compete you must have strength, speed, and endurance.  The events include rowing, lifting weights, and running.  You will move from one event to the next in heats of 12.  The fastest total time wins!  You can compete as an individual by age group (20-29, 30-39, etc..) or on a team (coed, male, or female). Teams must have a minimum of 6 members and a maximum of 10 members. The times of the fastest 6 members will be used to score the team. The coed teams must have a minimum of 3 of each gender. Any coes teams without at least 3 men and 3 women will be allowed to compete but will NOT be eligible for awards.

Multiple Sclerosis Society Donations

My wife, Enjonli Hutchison was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007, two years before we met.  When we started dating I became fascinated with helping her fight this disease by improving her fitness with running, cycling, resistance training, and diet.  She is as healthy as she has ever been and she will be competing for Team TejasFit at the TejasFitness Challenge!  TejasFit is proud to partner with the South Central Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  We have scheduled the event to coincide with World MS Day in an attempt to raise awareness of this treatable disease.  TejasFit is donating $5 of every entry fee we collect and an additional 10% of our net sponsorship proceeds to the South Central Chapter and we encourage all entrants to donate at least an additional $5.
