Death Racer WOD series – WOD #19

This week’s workout is a pyramid. You start at 10 and work your way down to one. We had to add in burpees because we know everyone loves burpees. If you think starting at 10 is easy, then start at a higher number. Good luck.

The 2015 Death Race is ON

Since Death Racer Mark Webb woke us up to what true resolve is, we are more excited than ever about what forged all of you and how you all have forged us here at HQ. This may be the last Summer Death Race ever.  This summer we’ve decided on the ultimate Death Race theme: PERSISTENCE.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people  with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. ”

Our friend Mark’s incredible attitude has inspired us with a taste of this rare quality. In 2015 we will find out whether talent, education, genius, or ultimately PERSISTENCE is what that gets us to those great places in life.

So where is the sadistic twist? Well more to come later on that, but in the meantime we thought it fitting to take 100% of 2015 Death Race entry fees and donate them to charity. Yes, we will give away 100% of 2015 Death Race entry fees. The finishers of what may be the final summer Death Race ever will get to choose what charities the money will go to. All the Death Race entry fees paid for 2015 will be split amongst the 2015 Summer Death Race finishers to donate to the charities of their choice.

Why do this now? Quite honestly planning and running the Death Race is hard work. There are a LOT of moving parts, and although it’s very rewarding, we all needed a way to make it more meaningful. Let’s not just help the participants, this year let’s help those in need.
