Day 4 Recap of The Iron Pirate Games

After a light day catered more towards fun and frolicking on Wednesday, the teams were thrown back into the furnace and the heat was turned up to burn as the competitors endured the toughest events of the week.

The day began with The Pain Relay Race, and what a painful relay it was.

Event # 1 – The Pain Relay Race

Jake says, “Trev, that tug of war wasn’t so bad after all.”

This event is simply a parking lot snake race in traditional relay style….However, instead of a relay baton, the players will be carrying and handing off The Pain – a 75 lb throwing dummy.  The fastest team wins.  However, there is one caveat.  The Pain is not allowed to touch the ground, and if it does said team will be assessed a 5 second penalty for each offense.

The anticipation is palpable

  1. Team Martin 1:41:02
  2. Ivey 1:44:45
  3. Trout 1:44:52
  4. Guthrie 1:48:11
  5. Ronpirin 1:49:47
  6. Welch 1:53:28

After a brief recovery, the teams to turned to the mother of all events – The WOD of Painful Death and Destruction…and Death.

This event is possibly the mother of all team WOD’s.  This event came about 3 falls ago, when in the aftermath, a former Pirate claimed, “Man, this is the WOD of Painful Death and Destruction and Death.”  It goes like this:

Each team will select 1 member to perform each exercise in each heat.  Each heat lasts 3 minutes and individuals will perform as many reps as possible during that time.  The total number of reps completed is that team’s base score.

At the end of each heat, there will be a 1:00 rest followed by a 200 meter run.  After the 200, the team will be given 1 1/2 minutes to rest before the start of the next heat.  The combined time in seconds for each team is the team’s run time.

Final scores will be calculated by subtracting the difference between a given team’s run time and the fastest team’s run time from their base score.
