WHO: F3 and FiA Pax WHAT: 2man Team OCR inspired CSAUP Relay WHEN: 1/12/2019 0530hrs (Warmup) 0600 (Half-Marathon) 0615 (Dash) WHERE: Dragon AO (York High School) Hwy 5 WHY: To challenge ourselves physically and mentally, comradery, fellowship, and fun. It's that time again...the time to brave the cold, to start the year off right, and push ourselves to limits that we may have never done before. Enter the 2019 Icebreaker...last year was a personal test, this year will be the same, but with a different approach. Last year focused on doing hundreds of reps and distance solo. This year will be a team effort with two options for pax to choose. Icebreaker 2019 will be an OCR based team relay run with a solo or "open" group called "Dash" and a "Half-Marathon" team option. The purpose is to do something different and introducing Obstacle Course Races (Spartan, Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, Rugged Maniac, etc) to the Pax. The course will be approximately 3.25mi long with several obstacles, challenges, or events along the way. Those interested in doing the "Dash" will do one lap solo or as a group. Those partaking in the "Half-Marathon" will do 4 complete laps for a total distance of approximately 13miles (two laps each team member). The first team member will complete a lap, then "tag" in their partner. Once that member returns, the first runner will then start his/her second lap and so on. Along the course there will be obstacles deemed "mandatory" to complete or there will be a burpee penalty. The goal is to complete the "Half-Marathon" in under 4hrs and/or the "Dash" in under 1hr. After party/ second "F" will be at the Coal Yard Restaurant in York immediately after all runners are off course and AO is cleaned up. There will be a required fee to participate...we are asking for all participants to bring $10 cash and 10 non-perishable food items. This money will go to help out needy families in the York area and for water/aid stations. Half-Marathon participants will start at 0600 while the "Dash" participants start at 0615. WarmUp will be conducted at 0530hrs to include the following: 5 burpees, 10 bobby hurleys, 15 merkins, 20 squats, 25 Moroccan night clubs. Some possible obstacles/events: Sandbag Carry, Cindy Carry, Bear Crawl, Low Crawl, Jumping, Running, Climbing, Ropes, Memorization, Dexterity, Agility. 1 lap = 3.25mi "Dash" 4 laps = 13mi "Half-Marathon"
