The Intermediate 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 40 years or older, you will have the option of competing in the Masters category (New for 2022)

There will be a huge water safety team in place so everyone can just focus on having fun!

Run

The run will be a combination of beach, rock and concrete path and will be clearly marked. The first sprint leg will be entirely on sand then into the water for swim, therefore shoes are not recommended. Athletes must run on the designated route at all times. Support vehicles and/or pacers are not allowed. Wearing headphones is not allowed. 

There will be a designated area at the swim exit where athletes can position their shoes (before attending the mandatory briefing) for easy access before starting the long run. For OH&S reasons communal foot baths will not be provided BUT, athletes are welcome to use their water bottle and/or towel to wash the sand off their feet if they so choose.

Movement Standards

Stand Up Paddle

Athletes must start in their designated holding pen/lane with their SUP Board immediately next to them, but not touching it. Wetsuits and speed suits CANNOT be worn. Athletes may be holding their paddle before the buzzer.

Once the heat starts each Athlete must pick up their SUP Board and enter the water with it. Making sure the water is deep enough so as not to damage the board/fin, the athlete will paddle along the designated route at all times keeping the marker buoys on their right. Support craft and/or pacers are not allowed.

NOTE: The SUP’s are not to make contact with anything but sand, water and human. Penalties can be applied if an athlete causes a board to make contact with the metal crowd control barriers.

Kettlebell Goblet Squats

The kettlebell must be held in the goblet position in front of the body. Once in position athlete’s must squat below ‘parallel’. We define ‘parallel’ as the depth where an athlete’s hip crease drops below the top of the leg. The rep is counted when the athlete stands to full extension of the hip, knee and ankle.

Kettlebell Goblet Lunge (forward stepping)

The kettlebell must be held in the goblet position in front of the body.

The athlete steps forward into a lunge position. At the bottom of the lunge, the trailing knee must make contact with the ground. The rep is credited when the athlete brings the front leg back and the feet are reunited inline with the athlete standing tall with hips and knees extended.

The athlete must alternate which foot leads for each rep. 

Burpee Over Paddle

Athletes must use the lateral variation of the burpee, no other variation is allowed. Athletes must touch their chest and thighs to the sand at the bottom of the burpee for the rep to count. Athletes must jump with two feet to get over the paddle and land with two feet. Athletes are not required to stand to full extension before jumping over the paddle. The rep is counted when both of the athlete’s feet reach the ground on the opposite side of the paddle.
