Murph Challenge


Calling all Athletes! The CDA Marathon on Memorial Day Weekend just got more exciting with the Inaugural Murph Challenge. Over the past decade, in many tactical fitness circles, members have been doing the Memorial Day Murph. “Murph” is a classic CrossFit workout known as a Hero WOD. Hero WOD’s are created by CrossFit to honor the men and women that have fallen in the line of duty. This one specifically honors Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action. 

Join the Community Murph Challenge with us in the CDA this year! Athletes will be chip-timed and receive a Finisher Shirt!
