On Saturday, July 9, the 9AM WOD at CrossFit Frederick will be the Sandbag Mile. You don’t need to do anything to attend, just bring yourself and be ready to carry a Sandbag for a mile. Did I really need to explain that?
If you choose, you can register at Reblca as an individual. Your $19 registration fee includes a PVC patch (they are not doing t-shirts this year). A portion of the fee goes to 555fitness, which provides grant money to fire departments for the purchase of fitness equipment with the goal of reducing firefighter line of duty deaths due to cardiac events.
Note that you DO NOT need to register to participate in the Sandbag mile this Saturday at CFF. Registration is voluntary. The Sandbag Mile will be conducted during the 9AM team WOD. 7AM open gym, the 8AM individual WOD, and 10:15AM yoga classes are still as regularly scheduled.
Details about the official weight and age divisions are available on Reblca’s site above, if you choose to see how your time matches up to those around the country. Last year we didn’t get too wrapped up in all the official weights. We have several sandbags, slam balls, and other weights for you to choose from. Last year we even had some kids come out and carry medicine balls for the mile, and Zeus joined in wearing a weighted vest.
And……this mile can count towards Marcy and Craig’s CFF Running Challenge, so you really don’t have a reason not to come out now, do you? See you Saturday!
