Event Details

Another year has gone by, and it's time once again for an NYC affiliate throwdown: the 2011 Subway Series!  All NYC affiliates are invited to participate -- the affiliate with the best overall score at the end of four events wins the Subway Series Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year!

Event Schedule

Saturday, August 6th, 9am: CrossFit Virtuosity
Saturday, August 13th, 9am: CrossFit Long Island City
Saturday, August 20th, 9am: CrossFit Queens
Saturday, August 27th, 9am: CrossFit South Brooklyn


Scoring will work "Open-style": top 3 male and top 3 female athletes from each affiliate will score based on their place finish in each event.  Athletes may score in any event regardless of attendance at other events.

The ultimate series winner will be the affiliate with the least points after all 4 events have been completed. In the event of a tie, a 5th tie-breaking event will be held.

Although only athletes competing RX’d will qualify for affiliate scoring, all athletes are encouraged to participate or watch and cheer. There will be scaling options available at each event.


Events are free, but all athletes MUST register for each individual event in advance via EventBrite in order to participate.  Registration for each event will open the Sunday preceding the event, and close midnight Thursday preceding the event.  Workout details will be released at the same time registration opens.  Each event will be capped at 90 total participants, so we strongly advise you to register early!


Event #4: Saturday, September 10th at CrossFit South Brooklyn

21-15-9 reps for time of:
Thrusters 95/65
Pull Ups

  • There will be a 10 minute cap on this event.
  • Thrusters - All thrusters must start with bar on shoulders and fully extended hips and knees, no squat clean thrusters. Hips must pass below the knees and bar must finish overhead with knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows fully extended. Ears must be visible from the side. If the bar is squat cleaned the athlete must pass through the squat again before continuing overhead. From the squat to overhead does not have to be one smooth motion. Jerking, while not recommended, is allowed.
  • Pull Ups - Must pass from dead hang on the bar with open shoulders and elbows fully extended to chin above the bar. Kipping, butterfly kipping, and strict pull ups are all allowed. Athlete may take any grip they choose on the bar. Athletic tape is allowed. Gymnastics grips are not allowed.
  • Standard scaling options will include Thrusters at 75/65/55/45/35/25 and either band assisted pull ups (any band, must get in and out DIY) or Ring Rows

Tie Breaker!
  • In the event of a team tie there will be a tie-breaker. The tie-breaker WOD will be Team "Grace". Teams will choose one male and one female to each complete 30 clean and jerks for time at Rx'd load (135/95). Only one partner may be touching a barbell at a time, the clock stops when the 60th rep is complete. Each partner must perform 30 reps, no more, no less.

Event #3: Saturday, August 20th at CrossFit Queens


WOD #1

5 Minutes to establish your 3RM OHS

Rest 2 Minutes

WOD #2

1 Minute AMRAP of Double Unders
2 Minute AMRAP Hang Power Snatch 95#/63#
3 Minute AMRAP of Toes to bar

Score: There are two scores highest 3RM wins Event 1. Highest number of reps completed wins Event 2.  Each competitor will receive 1 point for each place.  1st place =1, 2nd place = 2. Lowest score wins.


  • Three consecutive overhead squats. Once the bar is jerked over head the bar may not come back down.
  • You will then have two minutes of rest before moving directly into the double unders.  The rope must pass completely under the feet for the rep to count.  Failed attempts do not count. 
  • The hang power snatch must start from the hips.  There must be a pass after the initial lift of the ground and there must be a redip before the bar is snatched overhead.  Full lock out must be achieved at the top.  That means knees, hips, elbows and shoulders. 
  • Toe to bars are the same as the 2011 CrossFit Open standard.  Any part of the foot can touch the bar, but both feet much touch at the same time.  On the way down, feet must pass under the hips before attempting another T2B.  Gymnastics grips, tape, and gloves are allowed.
  • Scaling Options: Singles instead of double unders, hang power snatch 75lbs/W35lbs, situps instead of toes to bar
