Hopefully you’ve seen the flyers on the whiteboard about our upcoming 5K with the Woodbridge Marines. This 5k is for us and them to close down the summer and bring some of our Woodbridge neighbors out to showcase their business and help promote our young Marine recruits as well. This will begin with registration at 6:30am on Saturday the 28th of Sept. The 5k will take place along Noble pond way, Gideon and the Parkway. It will start and finish at the gym. Registration will give you a heat time and it is first come first serve so if you want an early heat, get here to sign up for it asap! I will send out about 30 people per heat ever 15-20 minutes starting at 8am. You will receive a wrist band when you come in to register and that wrist band will identify your heat. If you are a member or a Marine recruit you will not have to sign a waiver the day of but you will need to sign into a heat. All classes will be cancelled for this 5K to include our 10 am CrossFit Kid’s class.
We will have Tropical Smoothie, Mission BBQ, Semper Suds, NVA Jeep Brigade and VA Runner there to support us and showcase their businesses.
