Register Today for the Salute, Inc. 5k + Tactical Challenge Sunday, May 29, 8 a.m. The race starts at Miner School and finishes at Recreation Park. The event features individual and team divisions. Elite Athletic Development | CrossFit Arlington Heights is the reigning team division champ.
The Tactical Challenge pairs a 5k run with a series of military-style calisthenic movements using 20-pound sandbags for women and 40-pound sandbags for men. In past years, participants lugged their sandbag through four, 25-foot Army Crawls, plus used the sandbags to complete CrossFit Games Push Ups, Ground to Overhead lifts, Anchored Sit Ups, and Bag Hop Burpees. Participants May 29 may face those — as well as new — challenges.
The Tactical Challenge has raised more than $11,500 to help meet the financial, physical and emotional needs of military service members, veterans and their families. Event sponsor Elite Athletic Development | CrossFit Arlington Heights donates 100 percent of the funds raised by the Tactical Challenge to Salute, Inc. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
