NEW FOR 2022
You'll notice some changes in 2022. We're changing the traditional swag from T-Shirts to Specialty items. While we'll still offer event apparel as a commemorative item, we'll be adding more value with items like Coffee Mugs at the Cabin Fever 5K, Thermo Bottles at the Be Mine 5K, Safety Lights at the K9-5K, Waterproof Dry Bags at the Root River Paddle Challenge and much more!
But wait.... There's MORE!
New and Unique to 5Kevents this year is the 5Kevents Endurance Challenge Coins.
There will be 23 different coins to collect, and they include a little fun along the way!
ABOUT the 2022 5Kevents Endurance Challenge Coins:
To an outsider, a challenge coin might look like nothing more than a fancy collectible. It’s true that these coins are collector’s items, but they’re also shrouded in real tradition. Challenge coins indicate membership in something important, and there are rules that govern them. Playing the game by throwing down a challenge with a coin is something with which every coin owner should be familiar.
5Kevents ENDURANCE CHALLENGE COIN ETIQUETTE NOTE-BY-NOTE
It’s an honor to receive a challenge coin. That’s why it’s important to know the etiquette surrounding these important mementos. When you use the 5Kevents challenge coins the right way, you’re contributing to a time-tested tradition that inspires camaraderie and membership. Here are the essential rules to follow if you are part of the 5Kevents endurance challenge coin game.
A "Individual Challenge": If the person challenged fails to produce a coin, the challenge must be honored, and a drink must be purchased. A person can only be challenged once. You are free to challenge any past 5K participant or 5Kevents staff.
A group “Coin Check” Challenge is initiated by either holding your coin in the air or slamming it on a table or floor and yelling “Coin Check!” Everyone who is challenged (must be part of the endurance challenge. If everyone manages to produce a coin, the challenger is on the hook to buy the drinks for all. Be careful of who you challenge. Anyone not able to produce the coin is on the hook to buy the challenger a drink.
PRO TIP: It is well known that the 5Kevent's staff hangs out at Littleport Brewery in Downtown Racine and several occasionally bartend there from time to time.
KEEP THE TRADITION ALIVE
The bottom line is that a challenge coin is a thing of honor, and you should treat it like one.
Challenge coins carry great sentimental value and are symbols of pride representing one’s commitment to the Endurance Challenge.
Always carry your coin as a reminder of your commitment and connection to something bigger in your daily life.
