THE MURPH CHALLENGE
Many thanks again this year to the Rob and Kim Rauenzahn for sponsoring Corps Fitness to be an Official Host to the Murph Challenge, presented by Forged. This workout held annually serves as a major fundraiser for the Lt. Michael P. Murphy Scholarship Foundation which presents over 21 scholarships each year as well as making contributions to other very worthy organizations. If you would like to be officially registered (registration will get you a free tank or t-shirt and you will be able to submit your time to see how you compare around the country), you can do so here: https://themurphchallenge.com/register/ The cost to be officially registered is $60 for gold level (you additionally get a hat) or $40. Remember, all proceeds go to the Foundation.
And, even if you do not officially register, you still can join in the “fun”. This “fun” will be held on Saturday, May 28th at 8:30AM. This will be the ONLY class at CF that day. For those of you who have never participated or have never done the “Murph” workout, here is a quote from the website that serves as a great motivation to get it done: “The ‘Murph’ is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, an dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.” And, if you are new, or worried about making it through the workout, remember, there are always ways to scale for your fitness level.
And, if you are looking for even more motivation, please read this letter written by Michael’s father, Dan:
Looking for a big crowd to gut out “Murph” on May 28th….can’t wait to see you there! Thanks again Rob & Kim!!!
