2nd Annual Murph WOD and BBQ - Thankyou!!

A Big Thank You to everyone who came to support Iron CrossFit's 2nd Annual Murph Memorial Day WOD & BBQ!

We had over 90 people work out with many spectators there to support the cause. Many people did Murph for the first time, while others did it again hitting PRs and meeting new goals. To everyone who did Murph, it is a true test of your physical and mental fitness. Congratulations on a job well done!

We also must thank the many volunteers who made this event possible. Thank you so much for your incredible investment of time and hard work on this event.

A big thanks to:
