The event features a competitive conditioning event which will pit the offensive and defensive players against each other. The event is open to the public and a nominal donation is requested at the door.

This year, aside from being held outdoors and over a focused two-hour period, the format will surely have its own new twists with input from Conditioning Director Craig Fitzgerald who is already known for introducing new intriguing aspects to Penn State's strength program like 'the tug' and sand pit.
This event is a great summer tradition for Penn State fans to cheer on the team, meet the players and support a great cause.
