CrossFit of Marlborough and the 2012 Bed Race

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Did you sign up for the 2012 Bed Race that will be held this Labor Day Weekend? We had a blast last year!

Tom needs 4 – 5 runners to run the bed up the street. Put the sheets on. Run the bed back and take the sheets off. Last year we had the BEST time the whole way through until the last team of young whipper-snappers from Marlborough High!

Help us get the lead and hold on to it this year! 

Sign up with Tom!
