Run for Life fire diveOn Friday, April 24, morning, 7 to 8 a.m., PenBayPilot.com and “The Chris Wolf Show” will host Matt Heath, Jack Haulprich and Camden Fire Chief Chris Farley as they talk about the need for more volunteers in local fire departments, as well as the May 23 third annual Run For Your Life adventure obstacle race at the Camden Snow Bowl.

This show will be streaming live on www.MaineCoast.TV and broadcast on WRFR FM.

Organized by Midcoast Maine first responders, the Run For Your Life Challenge sends runners of all ages and abilities over a rugged obstacle course that extends to the summit of Ragged Mountain and down again.

The race appeals to both the seasoned triathalete and the novice runner as they take on obstacles, such as “Blazing Forearms,” “Bucket Brigade,” “Rescue Sandy,” “Highrise Hell,” the event promises an invigorating exercise in teamwork, fitness and personal excellence.

The Challenge is inspired by actual situations encountered by firefighters, EMS, and law enforcement.

New this year is a children’s obstacle course that will appeal to ages 4 to 12. While parents run the mountain, children will test their own mettle on the gentle slopes near the lodge with tunnels, ladders and balance beams.

Run For Your Life serves two goals: To challenge runners with a demanding course, and to motivate individuals to engage through volunteering and/or as a career with emergency services in their own communities. Run For Your Life is organized by Emergency Service Challenge, a group of committed firefighters and paramedics who encourage more citizens to get involved with local fire departments, ambulance services and law enforcement agencies.

Run for LifeIn teams or solo, participants – ranging from endurance enthusiasts to local business owners, students, cops and those who just like to run and climb – will swing by ropes, crawl under barbed wire and leap over fire as they reach the top, overlooking the islands of Penobscot Bay.

In addition, you’ll hear the news from PenBayPilot.com and stories that Chris Wolf has gathered from around the web, the weather and songs to help get your day started.

Hope to see you listening or watching Friday morning!
