November 6, 7 & 8th: Winter Challenge

Presented by the West Coast Triple Crown 

November 6, 7 & 8th, 2015

What: The Winter Challenge is a 3 day competition with both team (2M+2W) and individual divisions. This is one of the bigger local competitions and in the past it has attracted athletes from BC, Alberta, Washington and even Saskatchewan. This event will test athletes’ fitness across a variety of movements/time domains and you should expect to see at least one heavy barbell complex or ladder.

Who: People who can comfortably Rx most (if not all) workouts at the gym and ideally have several months+ of training under their belt. As a 3-day competition this event doesn’t just test your fitness, it tests your ability to recover and perform when fatigued. Historically speaking the workouts contain many of the standard “CrossFit Movements” but there is usually at least one or two unfamiliar movements thrown in there to keep things ‘exciting’.

If you’re really looking to challenge yourself and test your limits, individual is a great option; however if this is your first competition or you do not feel ready to compete alone RainCity plans to put in a team (2 Men + 2 Women) and these spots will be filled closer to the date according to: interest, skill level, commitment level and other such factors.

Where: The Olympic Oval 

Registration Date: TBA
