For those of you who have the competition bug, I have signed the Box up as a community for the 2016 Granite Games in St Cloud Minnesota Sept 9-11. There will be an online qualifying event beginning June 9-July 4, Registration is $25. There will be 4 WODs (1 per week, much like the Open) to establish qualifications. The main event September 9-11 has multiple categories to include all athletes. Elite, Masters (35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60+) and Teens (14-18) There will also be Team events (Team of 4 2 Girls, 2 Guys-Rx, Intermediate, and Scaled.) (Teams of 3-Same Gender-Rx, Intermediate and Scaled) It is a great event at a great venue. It is very well run and there will be celebrity CrossFit athletes warming up and working out right next to you. IF you are interested you can sign up and select the community “South Side Average Joes by clicking here, or speak with me and we to discuss opportunities in more detail. Signing up for the online qualifier is a great reason to keep the intensity of your training up. I for one am looking forward to it. If you’d like more info, click here for details.
