The 31Heroes WOD (workout of the day) was specifically designed to remember the fallen heroes of August 6, 2011 and honor their legacy of sacrifice.

The 31Heroes WOD will take place simultaneously across the globe, in your local gym or a location of your choosing, on August 4th, 2018. If August 4th does not work with your programming, don’t let that stop you from completing the 31Heroes WOD on a different day of your choice.

If you are an athlete, sign up to complete the workout at either a gym of your choosing or an individual athlete. Raise 75$ and get your 2018 31Heroes Shirt.

The 31Heroes Project will host the Main Event in Norfolk, VA on August 4th, 2018.  This year the Main event will be hosted by CrossFit 757 which is home to one of the organization’s founders.   If you wish to complete the workout with us, sign up here to create your fundraising page.  Event details for that day will be released three weeks prior to the event.  You can still create your fundraising page and participate with your gym’s fundraising goal in addition to attending the event at CrossFit 757.

For the athletic community, this is our moment of silence.
This is how we remember. This is how we come together to support those who’ve fought for us.
The 31Heroes WOD is more than a workout.

This is a mission to give back to those who’ve given their all.
Grab a partner, and join the team.

Like the warriors of our armed services, this WOD is about working together, sacrificing yourself for your teammate, and accomplishing the mission together. Partner 1 performs the workout listed above. Partner 2 runs 400m with a sandbag (45/25). When Partner 2 returns from the run, Partner 1 will grab the sandbag, and begin their 400m run, while Partner 2 continues the workout where Partner 1 left off.
