5th Annual Murphys Athletics, Dave Edney Memorial WOD
October 15 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Many people who have enjoyed ART over the years will remember our good friend, Dave Edney (aka Captain Dave), who passed away in 2016. Even if you didn’t get to meet Dave, you will see his handiwork work in the trails we enjoy, and you may have noticed the lovely memorial at the Cedar Center trailhead. The greater highway 4 community was touched by Dave’s love of the region and commitment to sharing the beauty of the ART.
In memory of Dave Edney, Murphys Athletics has hosted the Dave Edney Memorial WOD since 2017, with ALL proceeds going directly to the Arnold Rim Trail Association. You may signup for a simple 5k (walk or run your choice) or signup for the 5k along with burpees and double unders! If you are unable to join that day, you can still support this wonderful event by purchasing a Dave Edney t-shirt. T-shirt sales are open until September 26th, and you may place your t-shirt order and/or register for this wonderful uplifting event by clicking the link above.

Partner WOD: Teams of two.

After the count of “3-2-1-GO,” Partner A runs 400m, then Partner B runs 400m. In total, five 400m runs and one 500m run (2,500m) will be completed by each partner, alternating, in order to attain a cumulative 5k (5,000m).
After all runs are completed; with the remaining time on the clock, perform as many rounds as possible of: 5 Bumper Plate Burpees, 7 Overhead, Bumper Plate Lunges, and 60 Double Unders. For example, Partner A completes one, full round, then Partner B completes one, full round. Continue that pattern, alternating, until time expires.
