Challenge Series

 

Per MCO 6100.13, a Marine is a “professional warrior athlete.”

Warrior (n) =
1. One who is engaged in or experienced in battle
2. One who is engaged aggressively/energetically in an activity, cause, or conflict

Athlete (n) =
A person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength 

The purpose of the MFR Semper Fit Challenge Series is to boost morale and foster camaraderie thru the spirit of competition throughout Marine Forces Reserve - regardless of duty station. Similar to the format of a Commander’s Cup event series, this new program is designed to keep MFR I&I units constantly motivated thru competition. As professional warrior-athletes, every Marine must be physically fit, regardless of age, grade, or duty assignment. The hope of this competition is to keep our Marines/Sailors continually combat ready and functionally fit.

 

Challenge Series will consist of: 

     Bi-monthly events that units perform at their own site, with CO/OIC oversight
    
Events and reporting deadlines posted in bi-monthly MFR Semper Fit Newsletter
    
Appointed unit Semper Fit Officers (SFO) will submit the top (5) scores from the unit to MFR Semper Fit for a Force-wide tally
     Awards will be sent to the overall, Force-wide 1st and 2nd place finishers for each event

How to Submit Event Results:

     Once the event is performed at the unit and approved by the CO/OIC, the appointed unit RO will complete the Event Results spreadsheet and submit to the MFR Semper Fit Director (SFD) for inclusion in Force-wide results tally (Excel and signed/scanned version required)
     Deadlines for submitting results will be posted in the Semper Fit Newsletter, on the MCCS website, and sent electronically to the unit RO

Annual Grand Championship:

     Top (5) overall finishers in each event, from throughout the Force (not the unit), will qualify to compete in this event; TAD expenses funded by MFR Semper Fit
    
Competitors perform all Challenge Series events from the year, not just the qualifying one
    
All events will be performed in one day (location/date TBD)
     Trophies awarded to overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers
