What's it all about?

There are 2 divisions for you to choose from; Rx, Scaled.

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

The Intermediate (Scaled) option is suited to those who are new to competing, share a common love of functional fitness and are working toward building strength and mastering their skills

We have a Masters category too. In fact, for any athlete aged 36 years or older, you will automatically be competing in the Master division (We do not have specific workouts or weight changes for the Master’s division, but the Advanced and Intermediate divisions still apply)

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