Compete in the CrossFit hero WOD MURPH with your local functional fitness community.

Mega Murph at Clear Path for Veterans is an outdoor competition where athletes participate in the hero WOD Murph: a 1 mile run, 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats and a 1 mile run. A day for athletes and the community to come together to honor the memory of United States Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy and to recognize all Veterans who serve our country.

We welcome athletes of all ability levels to participate to the level of their choosing. This is a family friendly event that welcomes spectators to watch and cheer all who are competing.
