I love CrossFit competitions: People giving their all, pushing their limits, and striving for that spot on the podium. While loving all of this I also remember the early days of CrossFit when competing was about getting together with a group of friends and having some fun, maybe even drinking a beer when you’re done. This is the spirit of our annual New Year’s Throwdown. It’s cheap to enter, there’s no podium or sexy t-shirt, it’s about coming together and getting that one last PR to finish out the year with friends and having some serious fun. Here are the details on this year’s comp:
When: Dec 31st. Heats will run at 9am, 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.
Where: 50 teams will be at Wasatch CrossFit and there will be 25 slots at both Ute CrossFit – Draper and CrossFit Dixie in St George.
How Much: $20 per team of 2
What: Teams must be comprised of a guy & girl
Who: Anyone is welcome. The events are listed below. Scaling is fine, we’re here to have fun.
