Region IV

Row / Run Across Texas Initiative

 

Region IV Personnel,

Starting December 1st, with the support of the Region IV chain of command and DPSOA those who are interested will have an opportunity to participate in a friendly initiative called “Row/Run Across Texas.”  This initiative is intended to keep everyone motivated to stay physically active between the PRT testing periods.  The goal of this initiative is that each individual row/run/elliptical to reach the designated checkpoints along Interstate 10.  Individual participants will be categorized by age (per PRT flow chart) and the amount of meters performed. Participants are responsible for logging their daily progress on the chart provided.  Participants will need to check in every time they reach a 50K meter mark and at designated city checkpoints. All charts need to be turned in by February 28, 2018. Prizes will go to the individuals who reach Beaumont first or accumulate the most meters in each group. As well, we will have a raffle at the end with all the tickets earned during this race.

 

RULES

·       Upon reaching a 50K mark or city checkpoint, email your progress to regionIVrowrace@dps.texas.gov as soon as possible. Please do not skip checking in at checkpoints!!!!
