The Murph Challenge, named after former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient, Lieutenant Michael Murphy.
The Murph Challenge is an intense workout where participants attempt to complete a 1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and another 1 mile run to finish.
The event will be held this Memorial Day at the Olympic Oval in Lake Placid, with heat times at 9:00am, 10:00am, and 11:00am. Participants can register online, or at the Oval the day of the event.
The ’MURPH’ is more than just a workout though, It is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had for our country's freedom. The Murph Challenge is also the Official annual fundraiser of the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, awarding over 27 educational scholarships annually. A $10 donation will be collected to go towards the foundation.
Don't be discouraged if you can’t do the entire workout. Anyone can do their own version of “Murph” including modifying the run, reps, movements, or even partitioning the workout as a team. The idea is to challenge yourself in the name of Freedom.
We invite YOU to join countless others Americans, and register for The Murph Challenge 2018.
