As you all know, I love CrossFit Competitions, and I just saw this past week that there is another one coming up next month!  It’s hosted by our friends at MBS CrossFit up in Broomfield.  Their gym is amazing (literally located ON a runway of an airport!

Here’s what we know about the event so far (information taken from the website to register for the event, link below):

5 K Run
The run consists of mostly sidewalk and street with potential to go off-road, but only for a short time. It is not flat, so don’t expect to beat your best 5k time! Male and female top runner will get prize package from one of our sponsors – TBA! Check out this google map for the tenative run route.

CrossFit Total
The CrossFit Total is a test of strength consisting of the back squat, press, and deadlift. There will be a short rest following the 5k run before doing the Total. The lifts will be done in the order of squat, press, and deadlift. You will have 3 attempts at max for each lift. Your total score is the combined “good” lifts of all 3 exercises. This may be an oppurtunity for a PR! Men’s and Women’s Total winners recieve a gift from one of our sponsors – TBA!

The Turkey
The final WOD will be announced following the 5k run. Expect something in the shorter timeframe (under 15 min) that doesn’t include a 5k run or heavy squat, deadlift, or press. This WOD will be scaled for the different classes (Elite, Open, and Intermediate). See classes below for more info. The Men’s and Women’s winners of the Turkey will get a frozen turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner!”

I’m not sure if you saw…. but there are three classes of athletes.  Do you know what that means?  ANYONE CAN COMPETE!!!  Who’s going to be the first “Smashby Trainee” to give their all at an incredibly fun CF Event?!  C’mon, someone else should sign up, and then the rest of the crew can come up to cheer for us!

The best part about this event is that it is so low key, people are going to be going there just to have fun.  And that’s what these things are all about!

Let me know, and let’s go team!
