Burn The Bird Will Be Held On:SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2017

Event Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm 

Island Athletics

Port Washington, NY 11050


Island Athletics is teaming up with Be the Best Sport and will be hosting a “Burn The Bird” fundraiser on Saturday, November 25, 2017 to raise money to benefit children and adults with special needs.  The fundraiser will include a friendly CrossFit competition where teams of 3 will go head to head and compete for the fastest time.

The competition will consist of three different full body movements including rowing, burpee jump overs, and sandbag carrying.

The workout will consist of 9 total rounds.  Each round will include:

250 Meter Row

(15) Burpee Jump Overs (Over a Bench)

(10) 24 ft Sandbag Shuttle Carries (80 lb for Men / 60 lb for Women)

Athlete A will begin on the rowing machine.  Athlete B will begin at the burpee jump over station.  Athlete C will begin at the sandbag station.  On the call of “3, 2, 1, Go” Athlete A will row 250 meters, Athlete B will perform 15 burpee jump overs, while Athlete C will perform ten (10) 24-foot sandbag shuttle carries.  That constitutes one round.

Upon completing the round, athletes will rotate to the following station to begin the next round.  Athletes must stay in the same order, and cannot pass one another.  Meaning, if Athlete B finishes the burpee jump overs before Athlete C finishes the sandbag carries, they must wait until their teammate finishes their prescribed work before they can rotate as a team.  The athletes will continue to rotate in this fashion until they collectively complete 9 total rounds.

The top team that finishes the 9 rounds with the fastest time will earn a spot on the podium and receive a prize for their efforts!
