The Burpeethon marks the end of the Burpees for Blaine fitness challenge and will take place on days 99 and 100 of the Super Challenge starting at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 28 through 1:00 a.m. on Monday, June 29. Yes, that is 11 hours of burpees!
Sid and the Burpee Badger will be doing 122 burpees per hour. Please join them for moral support or to do some burpees with them for an hour or to challenge yourself to all 11 hours. All are welcome at Crossfit Mainline, 10 E. Athens Avenue, Ardmore, PA. There will be food, drinks, t-shirts and fun.
To kickoff Live Like Blaine, we are running a fitness challenge that combines fun and friendly competition, both of which Blaine loved. There are several different fitness options to choose from that will challenge any type of athlete – no gym membership required! We are offering two individual challenges as well as two team challenges so there are many ways to participate. Bottom line is that they all involve doing burpees for Blaine. By the end of the challenge, you will be in better shape and hopefully have made some new personal connections with others doing the challenge. As icing on the cake, you will have raised money for a good cause and had a lot of FUN along the way – just the way Blaine would have liked it.
Burpees for Blaine will officially begin on March 22, 2015 (Blaine’s birthday) and continue for 30 days through April 21, 2015 for all but the Super Challenge which will last for 100 days.
We hope this will be a fun way to challenge yourself for a great cause. Let’s make Blaine proud!
