Scare Brief / Overview:









Okay, okay... Let's try this again. 


Ticket details here:



On Friday, May 28, 2021, The Main Line CrossFit in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, will host the 8th Annual 24 in 24 event: 24 Heroes in 24 Hours.

YES, we said that right:  EIGHTH ANNUAL 24 in 24. The OCHO.  Wow!!!!


Starting at 09:30 on Friday the 28th, athletes will perform a "Hero WOD" every hour for 24 straight hours.

This 24 hour event serves as a fundraiser for 23rd Veteran  ( https://23rdveteran.org/ ) . 

The mission of 23rd Veteran is to provide a happier, healthier life for veterans living with trauma. They achieve their mission through a groundbreaking 14-week program (23V Recon) they developed that is based in camaraderie, physical fitness and positive psychology. Check out this video to get a glimpse of this awesome program. All ticket sale proceeds will be donated to 23rd Veteran.

About the 24 Heroes in 24 Hours:

The Hero WODs from CrossFit are named after Heroes who have given their lives in the line of duty - military or civilian.   Each workout is hard, heavy, and long.  This IS NOT an easy event.  The list of workouts will be published approximately 2 weeks before the event, so keep an eye on our website here, our Facebook event page, as well as our EventBrite ticket website for more details.  

***We will finish the 24 hour event with “MURPH” at 0830, Saturday morning.  This final workout is completed AS A GROUP - not an individual event.  Nobody REALLY wants to do "Murph" after working out for 23 straight hours, do they?  :-)

There is NO expectation that all athletes perform ALL WODs.  This is a fundraising event FIRST, Endurance event second.  We want lots of participants to sign up so that we can increase the overall donation amount to the 23rd Veteran.  Of course, we would love to see you knock out as many WODs as you want to safely perform.  But we're here for what the event MEANS more than the physical challenge of 24 separate HERO WODs.

All Athletes should come prepared to tackle any workout and familiarize themselves with the basic components found in the Hero WODs:  Bring your running shoes (there will be several miles of running - sometimes 400 meters at a time), weightlifting belts, weight VESTS (if you have one), wrist wraps, change of clothes and socks, calf sleeves (yup, there are rope climbs) and anything else that helps to get you through two dozen high intensity workouts.  

As with the last SEVEN years of this event, we will have a "team" format available:  this allows for teams of up to four athletes to share the workouts and distribute the movements among their teammates to complete the WOD.  The first six WODs will be individually performed, the next six as a team, the third set of six again as individuals, and the final six will be team efforts.  MURPH, the final WOD, will be completed as a team with all remaining athletes grinding out the last 2 miles of running, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, and 300 squats.

All athletes and participants will be required to sign a liability waiver from our home box - The Main Line CrossFit - prior to engaging in any of the workouts.  No exceptions.  This event is NO JOKE.

Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was assaulted by insurrectionists seeking to overthrow the US government during the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021. He succumbed to his injuries and died the next day in the hospital. He joined the Capitol Police in 2008. 

Officer Sicknick is from South River, NJ. A 1997 graduate of Middlesex County Vocational and Technical School, Sicknick "wanted to be a police officer his entire life," according to his family. He joined the New Jersey Air National Guard the year he graduated. Sicknick deployed to Saudi Arabia in 1999 in support of Operation Southern Watch. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he served in Kyrgyzstan in support of the war in Afghanistan.

As with most Hero WODs, the numbers have meaning.   In this case, Officer Sicknick was killed by Domestic Terrorists attempting to overthrow the US Government on Jan 6th, 2021 - hence the 1 / 6 / 21 format. The 13 Rounds represent his 13th years of service.
