Run of unknown distance in unknown time. It was .38 mile and the time was 2 min 30 seconds.

Pick up sandbags and cinder blocks. Clip them together.  325 pounds ish.

10 4 count log presses.

Start heading back to Motorboats house with all the weight.

At the first neighborhood, we did a couple of challenges.

1-minute hand release Merkins – if 50% hit 35 then we could take a carabiner off the sandbag log train.
1-minute sit ups.  2 groups.  If 50% then remove another 2 carabiners.
Sprint ~300 yards. If 50% under 1 minute remove another carabiner.
4 Carabiners removed.

Moving north again.  Stopped at the school.

10 Merkins with Rucks on for bad spacing

Challenge: 18 clean and squats with 50-70# sand bags.
Nomad and Khaki crushed it and removed the remaining carabiners and saved sprints

Head north again.  Stop for 15 dips IC on a stone wall.

Arrive at Motorboats neighborhood.

Souls were crushed as we turned away from the house to the green space again.

Divide into 3 teams.  Sandbags and blocks were attached together to form roughly 100 pound piles.  Race to complete the task.

Person 1 drag the weight all the way to the end of the rope. Person 2 drags the weight back by pulling on the rope.  Person 2 then drags the weight out and person 3 drags the weight back.  Repeat until everyone on the team has gone.

Losers did 10 log presses IC.

This was the first CSAUP for F3 Indianapolis and was a lot of fun to plan and execute.  This was the longest beatdown that most of the PAX had every completed.  It was awesome to see teamwork and to see men push themselves.  Great mumble chatter throughout the event.  Getting into rows was much harder than anticipated. YHC is honored to be a part of this with all of you.  I love you all and can’t wait for the next adventure.

Keep pushing yourselves!
