R.A.W. TRAINING and CROSSFIT R.A.W. are excited to host our 3rd Annual FALL BRAWL on October 13th, 2012. This event will be a one day challenge of a series of physical tests consisting of at least 3 events (possibly more :) plus a final event.
The FALL BRAWL
R.A.W. TRAINING would like to bring everyone together for an exciting event that is both physically challenging and a BLAST at the same time. Our vision is to bring athletes from not only Pittsburgh and our local community, but also the neighboring CrossFit communities – to all come together for a BRAWL to find out who is the FITTEST MALE AND FEMALE BRAWLER at the end of the day. Being "the fittest" means being able to perform at a high level across a broad spectrum of different physical tests and we plan to do just that! It will be an exciting event to watch as well as compete! Also, as part of the “THROWDOWN” we plan to have great food and beverages so be prepared to eat and drink too! Finally, we are donating to Team RED WHITE & BLUE this year, so you will be helping a great cause too!
Date and Times
The FALL BRAWL will take place on Saturday October 13, 2012. Check-in will be held both the evening of the 12th from 5:00pm-7:00pm and the morning of the 13th from 7:00am-8:00am. Rules and standards meeting will be held at 8:15am and the first event will begin at 9:00am. There will be at least 3 events for all participants, plus a final event for the top 12 athletes. The final event will begin at approximately 6:00pm for the top 6 female competitors and followed by the men's final with the top 6 male competitors. We have also added a MASTERS DIVISION again this year! Anyone age 45 and up can compete in this Division against athletes of their same age.
The athletes competing in this event will be tested on many fitness levels. The events will incorporate a variety of different movements and skills. We will offer scaling if needed to allow everyone to participate, however, only the athletes completing the events “as prescribed” will be eligible for the final event. The events will incorporate movements that are familiar to those with CrossFit experience, as well as some challenges that could be unfamiliar as well! We all love a little unknown and unknowable right??!! We will announce the event standards prior to the competition and the final event will be announced before the final event which will be held for the top 6 male and top 6 female finishers only.
We will have judges for each of the athletes for each event to ensure that all competitors are held to the same rules and movement standards to make this a fair and exciting event. The athletes that finish in the top 6 after all events will move on to the finals. Scoring will be described in more detail when the events are announced.
We will have CASH and PRIZES for the top finishers from our sponsors and well as other fun prizes and awards for winners of each of the events throughout the day! Last year we gave out over $1300 in cash amongst the top finishers.
The Fall Brawl is open to all level athletes. We will be offering a Masters Division this year for those athletes age 45 and up. We encourage athletes to be familiar with different fitness domains and have some exposure to CrossFit style workouts. We will do our best to scale the events to all levels. The entrance fee is $65 and THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR TICKET EXCHANGES. All Early Entries (before Oct 1st) are guaranteed a FREE event t-shirt but all late Entries (after Oct 1st) will not receive a shirt. All athletes will be required to sign a waiver. We are capping this event at only 150 participants so sign up soon to secure your spot! Last year we sold out very early so don't wait!
