Three rounds for time of:

Run 400 Meters
8 Front Squats

Barbell comes from the ground – no racks. Recommended weights are 205/145 lbs, but athletes are encouraged to scale up such that the load is between 75-80% of your 1-RM Front Squat.

I scaled this to 60 kg (65% of 1RM).  First round was good run in 2:25, 3/3/2 on squats for 4:16.  Second round was slower with run in 2:30, 3/3/2 on squats for 8:20, Last round was tough with a 3:00 run and the squats took me to 12:58.
