Mud, Sweat & Cheers Station Preview: Terrible Twenty

May 4, 2015

Leading up to Saturday’s Mud, Sweat & Cheers III, sponsored by the Cayuga Medical Center, we’re previewing the five stations that await the competitors during the Extreme Fitness Challenge.

Station #1: Terrible Twenty

Sponsored by: Sprague & Janowsky


Positioned between Island Health & Fitness and the Cayuga Lake Inlet, the first station will test the competitor’s fitness level from the start. The station is named “Terrible Twenty” because all teams must complete 20 pull-ups, 20 kettlebell swings and 20 box jumps per runner. In addition, each competitor must do 100 jumping jacks.


There are two team elements to the initial station. The first is a medicine ball relay in which each team must pass a medicine ball back and fourth while running along the path from the start line to the sidewalk on Buffalo St. The other task teams must complete before going onto the next station is carry a giant tractor tire from Island, under the Route 89 Bridge and back.


After teams have completed all of these tasks, they will start on the path towards Station #2.


Chris Bordoni was an active, physically fit Ithaca High School graduate who joined the Marine Crops to fulfill his passion for service to his community and country. Tragically, Corporal Bordoni lost his life from injuries sustained in Afghanistan while serving in Operation Enduring Freedom.


All proceeds from Mud, Sweat & Cheer III go to the Bordoni Trailhead on the Cayuga Lake Waterfront Trail and the Chris Bordoni Scholarship at Ithaca High School.
