2020 Memorial Day Murph

Virtual Competition for Individuals and teams

Event description

Welcome to the 7th Annual Memorial Day Murph!  We're excited to keep the tradition going this year, just in slightly different way due to social distancing!

Over the past 6 years, this event has raised over $100K for veterans charities and we would love to contribute again this year.  

This year, we will plan to bring everyone together virtually.  We will provide start time 'heats' and will all tackle this workout 'together' from either your home affiliates ... or your home (or any other place that works for you)!  If you're able to be in your affiliate on Memorial Day, plan to tune in from there!  **Please note:  We will not be providing a location for all athletes to perform this workout this year.  Please arrange with your home affiliate or plan to do from home and tune in with us via Zoom!**

Heats will start around 8am Monday morning, and run continuously throughout the morning into the afternoon.  Scores (times) can be submitted as athletes finish, and the virtual scoreboard will be updated in real time.

As normal, we will have several divisions to choose from so all athletes are able to compete (even if you don't have access to a pull-up bar).

Please see below:

Elite:  Full workout completed solo with a weighted vest (20# / 14#).  No modifications to movements.  

Rx:  Full workout completed solo.  No modifications to movements.

Scaled:  Full workout completed solo.  May modify movements as needed.

Partner:  Both athletes run both miles together, then split the reps on the middle section (may work at the same time).  Rx or scaled movements allowed.

Top three places in each division will be recognized with virtual awards ceremony!

Registration includes:

A shirt to be picked up at a designated time (or mailed if out of the metro area).

ALL proceeds from this event will go to local veterans charities. (please stay tuned for more information on those charities).
