Brendan “Hursty” Hurst was killed on the 15/07/07 while serving in Iraq as a civilian contractor training local police officers as a result of injuries sustained during an ambush on the outskirts of Bagdad.
Brendan had previously served as a Police Officer in the Queensland Police Force for over 15 years and was highly regarded and respected by his colleagues. Brendan was partner to Tanya and Father to Max. Sadly, Max was only a few weeks old when Brendan passed away. He is survived and will always be in the hearts of his partner, Tanya Cashin and son Max Hurst.
It is our honour to conduct an annual Memorial WOD for Brendan on the anniversary of his death (15/07/17) and would love to see maximum attendance on this day. Together with Tanya, we have created a workout that is inspired by Brendan’s training style and regardless of your physical prowess, this is a chance to celebrate the life of someone who passed too soon with your best effort.
