Get Ready for Murph on Memorial Day!


Get Ready for Murph on Memorial Day!

Every year on Memorial Day at CFN, we run the traditional “Murph” workout. It’s a popular WOD that a lot of CrossFit gyms run to honor Lieutenant Michael Murphy and all soldiers killed in battle. Murph will take place on Monday, May 31.

We will have 3 classes in the morning on Memorial Day:

The gym will be closed for the rest of the day. This is a popular workout and we expect all 3 classes to fill up. We hope you’ll join us!

  • 6:00 am – 7:30 am
  • 7:30 am – 9:00 am
  • 9:00 am – 10:30 am


This year, we’re doing something a little different. In addition to running Murph, we are raising money for two different charities: Sacramento Food Bank and Semper Fi Fund.

PLEASE NOTE: Donating or fundraising is completely voluntary. You do not need to donate or raise money in order to participate in the workout. Either way, please do join one of the 3 classes!

To add a little extra incentive, we will offer prizes to the athlete who raises the most money. If you do choose to raise money, you can:

  • Sponsor yourself
  • Sponsor another CFN athlete
  • Ask friends or family to donate
  • Donate a flat fee – say, $25
  • Sponsor yourself or someone else for an amount per minute that it takes you or them to complete it – say, $0.50 or $1 per minute. (Note: We will cap the workout time at 60 minutes.)

Checks are preferred but if you donate cash we will make sure it gets to the appropriate organization. If you have any questions about the workout or the fundraiser, please talk to one of the coaches.
