Operation Valor Presents the 2017 Fallen Heroes Virtual Run and WOD

Calling all Virtual Race lovers, crossfit fanatics, and lovers of our nation’s veterans!

We know that it’s not always possible to attend the greatest events around the world, that’s why we created a virtual race. Building on the success of last year, we are thrilled to announce:

The Virtual Run returns!! Last year we had almost 1,000 people participate worldwide! And, this year we want to blow that number out of the water! SO…in addition to the standard Virtual Run, there will ALSO be a competition! Grab your friends, your coach, your coworkers and SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!

Officially submitted results will be collected and a leaderboard will be posted and updated with new results each day. The top 3 Finishers in each division will receive custom trophies as will the top 3 Gyms/Boxes (best 5 times from your gym/box)

Just like last year, this will be a 5K run combined with the Official “Chris Kyle Hero” WOD (see details below):

  • 4 Pistol Squats
  • 25 Kettle Bell Swings (54 lbs for men/ 35 lbs for women)
  • 50 Push Up
  • 75 Pull Ups
  • 50 Push Up
  • 25 Kettle Bell Swings (54 lbs for men/ 35 lbs for women)
  • 4 Pistol Squats

 

Please note that completion of this Virtual Run is the ONLY way to earn the coveted
Fallen Heroes Memorial Run Medal! Again, this will be a 4″ diameter, dual-sided medal that is laser engraved and 3D stamp-pressed in heavy-duty nickel-alloy.

Also note that completion of the Glen Rose Beast or UltraBeast DOES also count as completion credit for the Virtual Run. However, you must also sign up and pay your registration fee for the Virtual Run in addition to the normal registration for the Spartan Beast/UltraBeast.

Medals will be awarded AT The Glen Rose Beast on Saturday for those participants who register for both events. Otherwise, your medal will be sent to you the week of Nov 6th after confirmation of your completion.

The competition portion of this event will close for results submission at 12:00 midnight on Nov 6th, 2017. Results can be submitted to results@fallenheroes.run. Screenshots and videos of your workouts are acceptable as proof. Details for the competitive mode will be sent in mid-August to all who register.

Not only are you getting an incredibly kickass medal, you’re helping us give back to those who have already given so much!

**Each virtual registration between now and July 31 will be entered into a drawing for a free Spartan Race! Drawing will be held on August 1**
