18 Feb 2016 - Back to the 80s

You've seen the pictures, you've heard the playlist (thanks Gareth!), now it's time to put on your totally rad leg warmers, don your Thriller-inspired red leather jacket, get your hair as big as possible and take on Open 16.5!

By the end of March, you Crazy Ones will have conquered four beastly WODs from the 2016 CrossFit Open, and what better way to celebrate your achievement than to do the final Open WOD in your best 80s get-up?! 

We will be doing the Final Open WOD (Open 16.5) on Sunday 27 March from 9.30 - Noon (timings are approximate depending on the WOD). We will be running the workout in heats and we encourage everyone to come early (or stay after) to cheer on your fellow Crazy Ones! At the end of the session, we will be giving out prizes for the Best Dressed Athletes! 

This session is free for all members, regardless of the membership they are on. Get signed up here.
