CrossFit combines Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics and high intensity interval training along with many other sport specific movements and challenges; in CrossFit an athlete must prepare for the unknown.
It is the “Ultimate Fitness Competition” – not just cardio, but a test of skill, strength, speed, stamina, cardiovascular endurance, power, agility, accuracy, balance, flexibility and coordination rolled into one. A competitor must overcome various physical challenges in order to complete an event and “ANY” activity is game, The individual or team with the best overall fitness will win!
This event is mainly for people who already take part in CrossFit either competitively or recreationally.

This event will attract individual men and women, recreational groups, master (over 40) teams and an all new pairs division. We encourage athletes of all types to participate in this unique event.
