Shanghai's First Burpee Marathon - June 7th
CrossFit IronDragon presents the first Shanghai Burpee Marathon. The fundraiser earnings will be divided among four awesome charities: LIFELINE, BEAN,SCAA and the HEART FOUNDATION
The Burpee is one of the most loved and hated full body movements in exercise history. It is known as the “king of bodyweight exercises” as it works every muscle in the body, requires no equipment and anyone can do it.
The basic motion starts from a standing position. Then you drop into a squat position with your hands on the ground. Then you kick your feet back while keeping your arms extended and immediately return your feet to the squat position. Finally you thrust the body forward and jump up.
The challenge consists of a full and half marathon. The winner will be the person or team who completes all the repetition with proper techniques in the fastest time.
Not only will this be a fun and challenging event that will test your physical and mental toughness but will burn several thousand calories in the process. Bring your friends and even pets for support!
BBQ, drinks and snacks will be available on the day. Lucky draw raffle prizes will be given from our sponsors throughout the day.
For those that cannot make it on the day but would like to contribute to the cause we will be accepting video submissions and your admission fee before June 5, 2014. Please contact us before this date and we will provide the standard.
