2nd annual Heart Attack Resistance Relay
Start recruiting your team and join us on October 5, for a fun-filled, sweaty, heart crushing relay race for OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon. Each team needs 5 people: 4 to participate in the relay, and 1 volunteer to help out on race day. Read the details below carefully!
The Team Trivia Challenge kicks off the relay on Friday night, October 4 The rankings in this challenge will determine whether your team gets to start with Legs 3 and 4, or legs 1 and 2, of the relay. You will want to start with Legs 3 and 4, to make sure that you get the bell you want, without having to wait and waste time.
On Saturday, the relay will start at 11am. Half of the teams will start with Leg 3, then Legs 4, 5, 1, and 2. The other half will start with Leg 1, then Legs 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Leg 1 - Your runner will complete a 3 mile course, beginning at BHKC, climbing up parts of Mt. Tabor Park, and then ending back at the gym
Leg 2 - Your sherpa will carry a single kettlebell, closest to 25% of their weight, over a surprise course
Leg 3 - The team masochist will be performing Hard Style Kettlebell Swings and perfect Burpees. Your team can choose to swing a 24kg bell 250 times, or a 36kg bell 150 times. All teams will complete 100 perfect Burpees
Leg 4 - Your jumper will complete 1500 jump ropes and 150 box jumps on a 20” box as quickly as possible
Leg 5 - The whole team will complete a surprise team strength challenge
Leg 6 - Each team may spend free time while members are running, sherpa-ing, swinging, and jumping, and any remaining time before the time cutoff of 3 hours, to work on a scavenger hunt
When a team has successfully completed all five legs plus the Scavenger Hunt, they must return to the gym as a team, and cross the finish line to have their time recorded.
There will be competitive and non-competitive divisions. If you wish to enter the competitive division, your swings, burpees, and box jumps will be judged and you will be issued a no-count rep if you do not meet technical standards. If you wish to enter the non-competitive division, you may swing any size bell, you may step up instead of box jump, and your burpees will not be judged for technical standards.
Registration is $105 per team. Choose your division below, add to cart and check out! Note that you will need at least your team name and captain’s email address to complete your registration purchase.
