On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members, many of whom were members of the Navy SEAL community—and one military K9—when an Extortion 17 helicopter was downed in Afghanistan.
The 31Heroes WOD (workout of the day) was specifically designed to remember the fallen heroes of August 6, 2011 and honor their legacy of sacrifice.

*When partner 2 returns from their 400m run they swap with their partner and start where partner 1 left off the reps. Partner 1 then completes the 400m weighted run.
*Partners continue in this fashion until 31 mins is up.
