From The Murph Challenge:

"This unique Memorial Day tradition will take place again throughout the United States on 05.29.17. We invite YOU to join countless others Americans, and register for The Murph Challenge 2017 today by clicking the button below!

Once you register, you will not only be pledging to participate in the Crossfit Hero WOD ‘MURPH’ (originally named ‘Body Armor’), you will also be joining a unique group of Americans who pay tribute to LT. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), and contributing to a prestigious organization founded by the Murphy family.

Beginning on Memorial Day, each registrant will be asked to return to and submit their ‘MURPH’ time to compare their achievement with other participants throughout the US. All times submitted will be displayed on a National leaderboard found at From that board, the top 5 Men and top 5 Women will be recognized for their efforts.

The ’MURPH’ is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.

The Murph Challenge is the Official annual fundraiser of the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, presented by Forged®."
