During the September 11 attacks of 2001, 2,996 people were killed.  As an Industry Athletics Community we will climb the ropes in our gym 2,996 times.  As a gym we are trying to achieve this challenge as soon as possible.  We will update the total number on each whiteboard.  With both locations combined I think we can do this challenge in two days.  Each climb represents a person who lost their life.  If you can not climb the high rope use the mini ropes – three laying to standing climbs = 1 rope climb.

Come join us as we celebrate 1 year since Crossfit Harbor East joined the Industry athletic family! On Sunday September 16th, Industry Athletics will be taking over the harbor with a duel gym partner event! Starting at Federal Hill teams of two will participant in the first of partner wods consisting of two benchmark workouts. At the conclusion of the wod, they will be directed to the Harbor pedestrian path for roughly a 2 mile run to Crossfit Harbor East (location of partner wod #2).

Athletes are asked to arrive by 9:15am for a debrief of the event and for openning remarks. Coaches will review the worksouts and provide a few minutes for athletes to warm up before the first heat begins. Heats will go off every 10-15 minutes starting at 9:30am. Registration will close the Wednesday before, so that we can get Heats out prior to the event.

The first workout will be Isabel & Grace.

When the clock starts partner 1 will complete Isabel (30 Power Snatches), while partner 2 rests/cheers/counts reps. Once partner one finishes, partner two will begin and complete Grace (30 Clean & Jerks). When partner two completes all 30 reps, both partners will head out on their run over to Crossfit Harbor East. Athletes are required to stay together as a team on the run and are required to follow the podestiran path, there athletes may come across additional challenges to complete as a team 😉

The second partner wod will not be annouced prior, however we will tell you that a jump rope is needed. We will have 40 ropes on site at CFHE of various sizes, but athletes are encouraged to bring their own and run with it from Fed.

At the conclusion of the second wod, athletes are invited to stay, socialize, and join us for a drink at the gym before continuing the celebrate at one of the local bars in Harbor East!

Do I need to be an Industry Athletics member to participate? 
Yes, this event is for Industry Athletics members only. Expections will be made if an Industry Athletics member intends to bring a friend to partner with. Friends should have Crossfit experience for this event.

If I have a bag, am I required to run with it from CFH to CFHE?
No, We will have a car on site to transport participants bags from CFH to CFHE. This vechicle will drive to Harbor East after the last athlete leaves the gym. Please make sure you do not put your jump rope in your bag, as it will not get there in time for the next workout.

Do I get to pick who my partner is?
Athletes can either pick their partner ahead of time, come up with a team name & register together. Or they can register as an individual and have coaches pair them up.

If I parked at Federal Hill, will I be provided a ride back after the second workout?
No, athletes are responsible for their own transportation. We highly recommend carpooling, birding, or ubering.

What if we are unable to run, how do we get to the other side of the Harbor?
In the event you are injured or unable to run, we will allow athletes to bike from Federal Hill to Harbor East. These athletes will follow the same path as the runners so as to hit any additional challenges. Please note that theres a difference between being unable to run and not wanting to run.

What time will the last heat at Federal Hill run?
The last heat will run at 10 am.
