Kilos for a Cure is back for its third year! Hosted at CrossFit 1864 in East London, the event will take place on Saturday 21 October from 9 am.
Did you know that breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with over 50,000 individuals diagnosed per year? Although treatments are improving and fatality rates are decreasing, there is still no cure for the disease. So, we want you to contribute your efforts to support the efforts of others with Kilos for a Cure, a special WOD to raise money for the charity, Breast Cancer Now.
We will be doing "Grace" (30 clean & jerk for time) and we'll also have a 1 RM clean & jerk competition, with prizes given out to the fastest "Grace" times for men and women in beginner, intermediate and Rx categories, the top 1 RM, and Best Dressed Athlete (think pink!).
The cost of the event is £16 to participate and all proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Now.
There are three Athlete Categories for the event: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. To be eligible for the prizes, athletes in the Beginner category will be using 35 kg (men) / 25 kg (women) for "Grace". Athletes in the Intermediate category will be using 50 kg (men) / 35 kg (women) and athletes in the Rx category will be doing the workout as Rx, 60 kg (men) / 40 kg (women). The category you are in for "Grace" will be the same as the category you are in for the 1 RM Clean & Jerk.
Not quite at the beginner weights yet? Don't worry, you can still participate! It is completely fine and we encourage you to scale the weights according to your ability.
