First heat starts at 9:20 AM

1) First, register with 31 Heroes for the CFM event on the 31 Heroes site...

2) Next, sign up for a heat on our shared Google doc…

You will need a partner for this workout. You can select your partner in advance, or you can sign up as an individual and we'll partner all athletes before the WOD based on their division.

When signing up for a heat, you'll also need to determine if you'd like to go RX, Open, or Scaled. You can indicate this on the spreadsheet by listing your thruster weight, rope climb mod and box jump height.

- Towel for sweaty hands and heads.
- Wear your 31 Heroes T-shirt or a CFM Shirt.
- Wear long socks to protect legs on rope climbs
- Water, pre/post-workout recovery drinks, your lucky headband or whatever else you need to get you through a character building 31-minute workout.

AMRAP in 31 minutes of:
8 Thrusters (155/105)
6 Rope Climbs (15')
11 Box Jumps (30"/24")
[See posts below for scaled options]

This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

Score is your total number of reps (25 per round).

This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team. In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.
