On Sunday, Aug. 21, community members can test their strength or show it off at the Round Rock Fire Truck Pull at Dell Diamond. The annual event is a team-building activity and a way to raise funds for Special Olympics Texas programming for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the Central Texas area.
The Fire Truck Pull requires teams of 12 friends, family members and colleagues to work together to pull an actual 55,000-pound Round Rock fire truck for 75 feet. The challenge wraps up with an awards ceremony for the Fastest Team Pull.
The first pull begins at 3:15 p.m., and the event is open to the public.
Registration to pull the fire truck can be completed online. Day of event registration starts at 2 p.m. All registrants will receive a ticket to see the Round Rock Express in action against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox that evening at 6:05 p.m.
The Fire Truck Pull is hosted by the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), SOTX’s largest grass-roots fundraiser.
