******************************************************************************

Murph the Monument will bring together the Midwest CrossFit community, veterans, and our service men and women for a great workout and an even better cause. The workout will be done on Monument Circle in heats of up to 40 people. A timing system and judges will be in place to ensure proper scores for those choosing to participate and compete.

Athletes can compete for prizes (from Bear Komplex, Treign, Kill Cliff and more) or just participate in the tradition of doing the Murph Hero WOD in a completely unique setting. Spectators and athletes will enjoy live music, food truck options and vendor booths from a variety of Murph the Monument partners.

In case you’re unfamiliar, “Murph” is classic CrossFit workout known as a Hero WOD. Hero WOD’s are made by CrossFit to honor the men and women that have fallen in the line of duty. This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005.

MURPH
1 mile Run
100 Pull-Ups
200 Push-Ups
300 Air Squats
1 mile Run
*With a 20 lb Vest or Body Armor

This workout itself was Michael’s favorite workout to do, which at the time referred to it as “Body Armor”, hence the 20 lb vest or body armor as part of the workout prescription. So, every year, CrossFitters synonymously around the world pay special tribute to Lieutenant Murphy by joining together and suffering through this workout.

Why do we do Murph?
Hero WOD’s are not uncommon in the CrossFit community. Besides the story of an amazing human being who gave his courage and ultimate sacrifice for his team and country (which we’re about to get to), it also gives us a chance to pay tribute to all the other Hero WOD’s such as J.T., Michael, Randy, and Nate. CrossFit still makes new Hero workouts to this day.
