What's it all about?

There are 2 divisions for you to choose from; Advanced (Rx) and Intermediate (Scaled).

The Advanced version of this event is for the more advanced teams. It’s the perfect fit for teams who love the thrill of competition and would typically complete daily workouts as they are prescribed

The Intermediate (Scaled) option is suited to those teams which may be new to competing, share a common love of functional fitness, and want to have a bunch of fun

The below are batches of registrations – the sooner you register, the less you pay!
