Alright everyone, this is what you’ve been waiting for.  For the last two years, the Gastonia PD has been hosting a burpee torture event to raise money for Special Olympics NC.  Year number 3 doesn’t seem to disappoint.

This years format is out and here it is.  Gather up teams of three or four.  The event will start at Crossfit Gastonia (608 East 2nd Avenue Gastonia) at 9:00am with a new team going every 30 minutes.  Registration is $25/person. If registered prior to April 21, you will receive a 2016 law enforcement torch run t-shirt.  Contact Emily Burr at 704-866-6702 or burr_emily@cityofgastonia.com to register.  One person can register the whole team or you can do it individually.

WOD:  Burpee Relay – All team members begin behind the starting line.  When time starts, one team member will run to the burpee area (30′) and perform five burpees.  Once completed, he or she (yes ladies and co-ed teams are welcome) will run back to the team and tag the next team member, who will repeat the process.  The team will continue the relay until 300 burpees are performed or 20 minutes have passed.

There will be fitness vendors onsite,$1,500 in prizes to raffle and a food truck.  It doesn’t matter your skill level or age, all that matters is you show up, support a great charity and have a good time getting your A** kicked.  Bring your M or 2.0.
