We’re pleased to announce the Charlottesville Super Fit Games 2010 on January 30th, 2010. Inspired by CrossFit Charlottesville and the CrossFit Games, we decided to hold our first local competition. We’ll be splitting proceeds between the Wounded Warrior Project and a local charity that will be announced sometime in December.
We believe being fit means being able to do well across a variety of different physical tests. As such, we’ve designed a competition that tests people for all-around skills. It will be super fun to watch and we’ll label our winners Charlottesville’s Super Fit!
More info after the break…
The event will take place on Saturday, January 30th, 2010. We will start things off at 7AM and athletes will receive their schedules 24 hours before competition starts. We’ll target our awards ceremony at 7PM.
The games will be incorporate a variety of different skill sets and be scaled to any level athlete. We will incorporate standard CrossFit movements in workouts that will be selected to test athletes in strength, endurance and skilled movements. We will announce the 3 individual events 48 hours prior to the competition. We will hold a final 4th event for the top male and female finishers in the regular 3 events.
Sample Workout Formats
Event 1: 3 Rounds of Row 500 Meters, 21 Squat Cleans, 21 Burpees
Event 2: 1 Rep Max Deadlift
Event 3: Run 800 Meters, 50 Double Unders, 50 Overhead Squats, Run 800 Meters
First and foremost the games are about raising money for our charities and having fun. Athletes that do the best overall will win the games. Scoring will be described in more details when we announce the events, but the best performing athlete in each event will score 100% on the event and the remaining athletes will be scored as a % of that movement.
We will have a prize basket for our winners from our sponsors.
Games will be open to all level athletes over the age of 16. We encourage athletes to be familiar with different fitness domains. We will do our best to scale the event to all levels. Entrance fee is $40 and will go up to $55 the beginning of December. Entrance will include a fancy, tri-blend t-shirt. All athletes will be required to sign a waiver which will be provided at the event. Event participants will be capped at 100.
The games will be held rain or shine at CrossFit Charlottesville at 1304 East Market Street, Suite S.
