Mud, Sweat & Cheers III Station Preview: Rope Burn

May 5, 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. The second station is Rope Burn.

Station #2: Rope Burn

Sponsored by: Honda of Ithaca


After completing the first station at Island Health & Fitness, Terrible Twenty, teams will run along the Cayuga Lake Inlet, around the Boatyard Grill parking lot, over the Route 89 Bridge and onto the Cayuga Lake Waterfront Trail. Once on the trail they will encounter the second station: Rope Burn.


The station gets its name from the burning sensation your arms will feel after you and your teammates finish 200 rope slams. In addition, every competitor must complete 100 bodyweight squats. If that wasn’t enough, each squad must work together to flip a giant tractor tire 30 yards down and 30 yards back.


After teams have completed all of these tasks, they will start on the path towards Station #3: Sled Drag.


Chris Bordoni was an active, physically fit Ithaca High School graduate who joined the Marine Corps 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.
