For those who didn’t know Gremlin, he was an F3 Mint Hill Pax member who passed away after a running workout in Jan. 2018 due to a heart attack. He was a UNCC alumni and member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity, hence the workout is being held on UNCC’s campus.
This CSAUP (Completely Stupid and Utterly Pointless) event, will be in his honor and forever memorialize his name. It will be the toughest thing you will ever love to do with 100+ of your closest, sweaty friends. All sixteen MECA AO’s will provide Q’s to lead various pain stations throughout the 10-13 mile trek around the UNCC campus that morning.
Plan for all weather scenarios (i.e. getting wet). Remember, this event will be held rain or shine and will most likely be COLD. The rain-i-er and cold-i-er the better! AYE!
