FALL BRAWL 2013
Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
R.A.W. TRAINING and CROSSFIT R.A.W. are excited to host our 4th Annual FALL BRAWL on October 19th, 2013. This event will be a one day challenge of a series of physical tests consisting of at least 3 events 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, FEMALE, AND MASTER 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! Each year this event has grown significantly and the level of competition has as well. 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 again this year, so you will be helping a great cause as well.
Date and Times
The FALL BRAWL will take place on Saturday October 19, 2012. Check-in will be held both the evening of the 18th from 5:00pm-7:00pm and the morning of the 19th from 6:45am-7:45am. Rules and standards meeting will be held at 8:00am 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 athletes. The final event will begin at approximately 6:00pm for the top masters (40+) followed by the top female competitors and then finishing with the men's final with the top male competitors.
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 at the end of the day which will be held for the top males, females and masters 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 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.
1st Place Male and Female Rx....$500
