Backblast #046 – Halloween Black Ops

It was Halloween – October 31st…what better to do but gather a group of PAX and head to a cemetery for some spooky fun. All told, over 2 miles and 200 merkins would be completed on this hallowed journey.

The Thang:

PAX moseyed with a single pumpkin across Richmond Park to the bottom of the sledding hill.

The Great Pumpkin Run:

– Indian Run with Pumpkin
– Pumpkin is passed back through the PAX
– Last man sprints to the front and begins to pass the pumpkin back

We ran all the way to the SS Peter Paul Cemetery. The PAX told scary stories while moseying to the inner circle of the cemetery. The next exercise will consist of MURDER’ing the Death Star.

Death Star:

– 10 spots where found around the inner circle of the cemetery.
– To defeat the Death Star, the PAX would need to complete 20 merkins at each spot.
– A total count of 200 merkins would be need by each PAX to defeat the Death Star.

The PAX then continued the Great Pumpkin Run back to the large sledding hill at Richmond Park. At the top of the hill, the great pumpkin was to be MURDER’ed. The pumpkin was rolled down the hill into the lake – a sailor’s burial it was – bye my great friend.

Zombie Plank, Bear Crawl and Crawl Bear down the hill. Mosey back to the start.
