Original announcement – July 9, 2012
3011 Reps of Remembrance
“We will suffer to honor their memories and their sacrifice.”
CrossFit of Marlboro is organizing an event, “3011 Reps of Remembrance”, to honor the heroes and remember the victims of 9/11: 3,000 for the number of people who perished, 11 to honor the 11 year anniversary. We have also invited members of the Marlborough Police and Fire Departments to join us as they have a special connection to 9/11.
On Sunday September 9, 2012, beginning @ 9:03am (the time that the South World Trade Center Tower was struck), teams of 4-6 people will depart the CF box, flipping a tractor tire up Maple St. to the intersection of Main Street, turning left and proceeding to the Walker Building.
At the Walker Building each team will need to complete a specific number of repetitions of an exercise (e.g. burpees, push-ups). [Note: The lawn of the Walker Bldg will be decorated with 3,000 flags from Saturday 9/8/12 – Tuesday 9/11/12.] Teams will then flip the tire back to the box following the same route. The total course route (round trip) is 2.98 miles. Upon returning to CF, each team will have completed 3,011 reps.
You can put together a team of fellow CrossFitters or we can assign you to a team. This is not a race, we simply want all of the teams to finish. However, the goal for this event is to remind people of the significance of 9/11, a day that changed America and our lives forever. While we wish we could erase the horrors of that day from our memories, it is critical that we all remember the sacrifices and profound acts of heroism of 9/11.
The deadline to sign-up is August 20, 2012. It is critical that you sign up in advance so we can plan accordingly for the number of teams and quantity of tires needed. Please sign-up @ CF or contact Christine, Joel or Tom. Also, feel free to contact Rob Seymour @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-642-5607 (cell) if you have any questions or need additional information.
We look forward to seeing you there!
A sign up sheet will be at CF in the next day or so if you are interested!!!
