Region IV

West Texas Region 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 Fall 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 SOK meter mark and at designated city checkpoints. All charts need to be turned in by February 29, 2020. Prizes will go to the individuals and teams who reach Beaumont first or accumulate the most meters. As well, we will have a raffle at the end with all the tickets earned during this race.





This is an integrity based competition!!! This initiative is meant to be fun and motivate everyone to continue working out, or start!

       Starting December 1st you will need to keep a log of each row/run/elliptical you complete. This will be done on the Excel program provided. (proof of each workout is not required but is recommended for bragging rights)

       Upon reaching a SOK mark or city checkpoint, email your calculation spreadsheet to as soon as poss ible. *Do not skip checking in at checkpoints!!!!

        Road and treadmill runs are acceptable (NOT pedometers counting daily steps). It must be a dedicated run workout. A dedicated continued walk will also be accepted.

        Elliptical machines will also be accepted. Miles will convert to meters on the provided calculation chart.

        Just like a golf tournament, you will not be monitored throughout the race. So it is extremely important you check in once you've reached the assigned checkpoints!!!

       You must be assigned to Region IV before or during the race to participate. You will not be disqualified if you transfer out of Region IV during the race.

        Refer to department policies. Just as the current policy states, workouts shall be completed
