Suffer Fest – The Official Shmedfest Workout
The Suffer Fest is 4-part event. There are 3 work opportunities and the party that is Shmedfest. The launch point will be the parking lot between W 7th St, W 6th St, N Cherry St and N Marshall St. This is the lot behind the Benton Convention Center in Downtown Winston Salem.
Get there early for a parking space and circle up to launch at 0630.
The day will kick off with a traveling beat down to some of the Dash PAX favorite AOs. These are places where F3 is having an impact and where Iron is Sharpening Iron. The total travel distance will be about 2.5 miles so you can still PR the 5K later. We have some plans to keep the PAX together for journey between stations and in true F3 spirit; no one will be left behind. All are welcome, but all will be challenged.
The first part of Suffer Fest will end on Trade St near the Rescue Mission. This will allow you to re hydrate and stretch before the second part, The Mission 5K starting at 0830. The money raised from the 5K goes to support the Rescue Mission and providing shoes for them. http://www.fleetfeetwinston-salem.com/mission5k
The third part is The Murph, yes The Murph, or Murphateria as we are calling it for Suffer Fest is the perfect way to close out the work for the day. We will be doing The Murph at Hanes Park after the 5K (anticipate meeting at the Tennis Court Parking Lot at Hanes Park at 0930 – but will announce after the run). You can scale the Murph down to any size and modifications are available. This is the August installment of the Birthday Murphday and it seems like Shmedfest is also the birthday of one of the Dash PAX and we expect to see him there.
The final part is Shmedfest the party. This starts at 4pm at Triad Park in Kernersville. http://crisiscontrol.org/calendar-events/shmedfest/
