Here’s how to run the event:
One of the benefits of attending a gym is being surrounded by people who take health, sacrifice, and effort seriously. They’re the best people to understand how much each sacrifice (no matter how small) counts – it changes lives.
You have a few options to run this type of event.
Firstly, you have the option of becoming an official host for the Murph Challenge. You can then encourage your members and even their friends and/or family to participate in this event by having them register through you.
Hosting this event will give you access to an online leaderboard wherein those members who registered will be placed in the running of the National Competition. More details can be found on their official site.
After the event, you can treat your members to a small BBQ or gathering with some beer and food. This can help foster a culture of togetherness within your gym and its members and soon to be members.
This event is perfect to drive traffic to your gym as well as the website since your gym and website will be listed on TheMurphChallenge.com once you’re a host. Aside from that, you will also be able to help fund the LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation. So talk about all the amazing things your gym and its members will be a part of!
Promoting the event:
Promote your event well ahead of time so your members can be oriented and start training for the event.
This event is all about honoring the lives lost through effort, sweat, and pain. Everyone plays a part since the effort and time they put into this challenge will help raise funds for the Lt. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
“What is freedom worth? Michael felt it was worth his life”.
Add updates to your social media pages and post flyers around the gym. Don’t forget to email your members and ask them to RSVP.
