Setup the Mission:
Break pax into groups of 4 and elect team captain. Meet with team captains and explain the mission.

Mission start:
Dodge moving cars and carry blocks to Ballentine Elementary. On the way at the top of Bird Road, team captain is assisted to school after “breaking their leg”. Some teams chose to carry their captain; some teams helped the captain hop to the school.

-Overhead carry block up hill. Do 20 Merkins. Walk down hill with block overhead. Pass off block to partner who will repeat. Repeat counting down to 1 Merkin. Pax not carrying will be in plank position. Time was tight, so Merkins were cut down to 10 after Pax had about 6 trips up and down the hill.

-Put block on shoulders and lunge walk up hill and farmer carry back down. Partner not carrying blocks was doing flutter kicks. Switch and repeat for 5 minutes

-Team will stand in line and move one brick up the hill passing it to each pax. When pax gets block they do 10 overhead presses and passes the block to the next person and runs up to the hill to form a chain. This is similar to the Indian run. Move both blocks up the hill.

Back to the block pile and the shovel flag.
