40 YARD DASH
In addition to your 5K time, all 5K participants will receive a 40 yard dash split time for their final 40 yards of their run on the field!
Did you know...
The 40 yard dash is primarily run to evaluate the speed of football players by scouts, particularly for the NFL Draft. The origin of timing football players for 40 yards comes from the average distance of a punt and the time it takes to reach that distance. Punts average around 40 yards in distance from the line of scrimmage, and the hangtime averages approximately 4.5 seconds. Therefore, a 40 yard dash time under 4.5 seconds is ideal.
