We'll be hosting Memorial Day Murph at the box on Sunday 20 May from 9 am. Need a reminder of what Memorial Day Murph is? Check out our blog.
We will run three heats: the first heat will start at 9 am, and heats will run every hour. PLEASE NOTE: when the heat begins, Murph begins, so please show up to your heat ON TIME! You can sign up for your heat via the link on slack and sent to you via email. If you don't sign up for a heat, there is a chance you won't be able to do the workout.
If you plan on wearing a weight vest, please put a "Y" in the "Weight Vest" column. As mentioned in our previous blog, weight vests are on a first come, first serve basis. We have three 10 kg vests available to use. If you are bringing your own weight vest, don't worry about ticking the box. If you need to refresh your memory on whether or not you should wear a vest for the workout, check out our blog here.
What if I can't do a movement in Murph?
As with all of our workouts, if you're not able to do a movement, we will provide a scaled option for you. So, if you don't have pull-ups yet, don't let that keep you from taking part! This is one of our favourite community events of the year, a great opportunity to raise money for an excellent cause, and just really good fun! (Assuming you consider running two miles and doing loads of pull-ups, push-ups and squats, fun. We know we do!).
Memorial Day Murph is free to all members and non-members of CrossFit 1864. All we ask is that you donate to this year's chosen charity, Help 4 Homeless Veterans. You can do this by bringing your donation to the box on the day, or by visiting the charity's Justgiving page.
There is nothing quite like the electricity, the atmosphere, the buzzzzzz our box gets when we all come together as a community and cheer each other on - so let's have that at Memorial Day Murph! Regardless of when your heat is, we want you to come in early or stay late to cheer on your fellow athletes. It's a brutal workout and they are going to need all the encouragement you can give!
