27 July 2017 – CrossFit 1864 does the CrossFit Games (but not officially...)

The photoshop is bad on purpose, ok guys?1

::Imagine this is being read in a super dramatic sports announcer-type voice...::

In the first week of August, in Madison, Wisconsin, the best CrossFit athletes in the world will take on a week's worth of challenges, testing their physical and mental capacity to find out who is truly the Fittest on Earth. On the weekend of 4, 5 and 6 August, we're going to do something REALLY similar (but different...). 

To celebrate the CrossFit Games, and for just a bit of fun, on Friday 4 August, Saturday 5 August and Sunday 6 August, we will take on some of the CrossFit Games workouts, but in the comfort of our own box! In true CrossFit Games fashion, we will only be releasing the details of each event closer to the weekend, but in the meantime, mark your diaries for the following dates:

Event 1: Friday 4 August, 6 - 6.45 pm
Event 2: Saturday 5 August, 8 - 10 am
Event 3: Saturday 5 August, From Noon (this will take place outside of the box)
Event 4 & 5 (and maybe 6 & 7?): Sunday 6 August, 8.30 am – Noon

There will be scaled options for all of the days and we will be awarding prizes to the winner of each event, as well as overall winners.

* Zenplanner will be updated with these events by Thursday morning.
