So last year Bloodhound and I came up with the idea that we needed to have our very own CSAUP. So the Camel Hump was born. We completed 3 beatdowns at 3 different Alpha AOs and ruck the distance between the three (about 12 miles). This year YHC decided to change it up a bit and since it was Labor Day weekend that we have chosen as a good weekend to perform, then recover from a CSAUP event, we decided to stick with that date. And since YHC enjoys Greek Mythology, why not really go all in on the “Labor” day idea and have a 12 part beatdown reminiscent of Hercules 12 labors. Now we will not wrestle the Erymanthean Boar, have to kill a hydra, or defeat the Nemean Lion. But we will complete 12 grueling tasks that by the end will make you feel as if you too could have been a Greek hero.
The 12 Labors
2018 CSAUP “The Hercules Labors Day Event”
Hercules had 12 labors, so why not have a 12 exercise/portions to the mega beatdown that will take place on LABOR day weekend.

I have a friend whose daughter, Falyn (8), is battling through childhood cancer. I am working to raise money for his family to help support her medical costs. So I am asking for $20 sign up fee to cover the patch that you will earn and for the remainder to go directly to the family. The Burden we will bear this day will be great, but nothing compared to what they are going through. Thank you for considering taking part in this challenge.
