Atlas Carry

You are going to want to get real low to the ground to grab that stone, so hopefully your squat form is impeccable. You are going to pick up the stone, carry it to the other flag, do five burpees and come back. Keep a flat back as you pick up and lower the stone, and move quickly. Don’t cheat on those burpees either, chest to grass and feet off the ground for it to count.

Racer Instructions:

  • Pickup the stone at start flag.
  • Carry it to the opposite flag
  • Put stone down
  • Do 5 Burpees
  • Return Stone to Starting flag

Failure Modes:

  • Anyone not able to move the “stones” to opposite flag and back to start flag.
  • Elite racers that help each other.
  • Anyone who doesn’t complete 5 correct burpees.

Failure Penalty:

  • 30 Burpees

Barbed Wire Crawl

Getting down and dirty in the Barbed Wire Crawl is mandatory. There are few things more challenging on your entire body than trekking through a rocky creek-bed on your elbows and knees trying to avoid getting ripped up by barbed wire just a few inches above you. Arch your back a little too much and you will need a new shirt and some band-aids. Lift your butt a bit too high and you may be mooning everyone behind you.
