About the Event

This year’s event will be hosted on Saturday May 9th, 2019 and brings a unique twist to your normal team CrossFit competition. Teams will compete as rotating units of 4 while your fifth athlete completes an individual test. Individual tests will range from strength to cardio to gymnastics and vary in lengths. While both team and individual events will be announced before the competition, you won’t know which team workout runs concurrently to each individual test – this may force your team to make adjustments on the fly.

All athletes should expect to complete 4 tests of fitness the day of competition. There will be 3 formal team workouts (including floater), a team strength test, and 4 varied tests that individuals will complete. However, whom you choose to complete which test is entirely up to you and your team!
