This year LIFT CrossFit will be starting a new tradition over Memorial Day Weekend. CrossFitters worldwide have completed the hero WOD “Murph” (in honor of fallen soldier Michael P. Murphy) on Memorial Day. If you are unfamiliar Murph, it is a grueling workout that consists of 2 miles of running, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups and 300 squats, all while wearing a 20lb vest.
“Murph” is an amazing workout that honors one of our fallen soldiers. However, why do we only honor one fallen hero, why don’t we honor as many as we can?
So we decided to do just that. LIFT CrossFit will be initiating the LIFT Hero WODarathon!
Monday, May 28th
Donations are not required to participate, but greatly appreciated! Owner, Korey Stern will match and donate whatever amount is raised during the event! 100% of money raised will go the Lone Survivor Foundation.
* Teams of 4 (that can be any combination of men and women) will have two hours to complete as many Hero WODs as possible.
�* Each Hero WOD will be printed on a card and attached to a board at the front of the gym.
�* Team captains will select a Hero WOD and remove the card from the board. Teams will complete the Hero WOD as described on the card (scaling as necessary).
�* Teams can split up these workouts however they want, but only one athlete can work at a time.
�* The Hero WOD must be completed in its entirety before moving on to the next one.
�* Upon completion of the WOD, the card will then be returned to the “completed” WOD board.
�* Each Hero WOD can only be completed one time. No duplicating WODs.
* There are 173 Hero WODs officially registered by CrossFit HQ.
�* Our goal as a community, will be to honor as many Heroes as possible by completing as many of 173 WODs as we can.
** After the event there will be a community potluck and party to celebrate! *
