The Cheer Challenge is an opportunity for groups to set up a themed “Cheer Zone” and have a chance to win prize money based on our runner survey.  This year, the Cheer Challenge has been opened up to any group willing to put together 15 people, a theme and to cheer on the runners to the finish line. At the end of the event we will award additional monies to the top groups, selected by runners in a post event survey.
