On August 15th, at approximately 0600, I will join a small group of other crazies to cover an brutal 25+ mile course as part of the Death Before DNF Ultra Run. Some runners will go for multiple laps to show Mr. Hammersmith that 100 miles is possible.
An even smaller group of certifiable individuals are going to "ruck" the course and hopefully make it back before sundown. Matthew Hammersmith with Upstate Ultras promises a brutal course, offering only one aid station and one chance to drop out, early in the route. The rest is unmarked, unsupported and unknown.
This entire event is organized, and funded through volunteer efforts with the overarching goal to raise $$$ for the Road Warriors Corp. mission to raise funds and awareness for the difficulties associated with receiving proper cancer care. More about the Road Warriors Mission HERE.
YOU Sponsor a mile and choose an exercise for me to complete ten, 1-0, reps at that mile.
Your funds support a good cause and I celebrate your contribution with each mile completed with a little extra PT.
4 Easy Steps
Step 1: Brainstorm with your friends about what exercise would be the most fun for me to do at which mile of the event.
Step 2: Go to http://www.roadwarriorscorp.org/donate-online and make your donation in the corresponding amount to which mile you'd like to sponsor--see chart at right.
( i.e. if you want me to do 10 x 8 Ct Body Destroyers
at mile 20 it's $100.)
Step 3: Email your donation receipt to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with the mile you want to sponsor and what exercise I am to do.... burpees, 4 count flutter kicks, tree HSPU, ruck presses, cartwheels, etc.
Step 4: Recruit your friends to join in the fun!
