Reebok CrossFit Cardiff Open 2020 Information

Ok team, so we have some exciting news and important dates for you to get you into the open spirit. Blast through half of the miserable winter with some fun times with the first event has already been created.

So this time around we have a little bit of a twist. We are going to be running with teams, two of them, but with an altered focus. Rather than compete for glory, we will refocus in order to help others.
Each team will have a charity, decided by their Team Captain, and throughout the 5 weeks of the open, will set their goals to raise as much money as possible.

Team Captains will take it in turns each week to set a theme for the event, with every athlete achieving the standards of the theme donating a minimum of £1 to the ever growing pot. Once monies have been totalled, the winner’s charity will receive a £50 donation from CrossFit Cardiff in order to bolster it’s amount.
The final week’s theme will be set by CrossFit Cardiff, details to follow.

In addition to the set workouts, teams are fully encouraged to raise as much money as possible, throughout the 5-week open period, by any means necessary. Examples are: skydives, baked bean baths, warm custard wrestles, etc.

As a side focus, athletes within each team will be partnered up with an accumulative score per workout, per partner will be entered into a custom leaderboard where each duo will battle for The Reebok CrossFit Cardiff Affiliate Cup (a cup that Conroy is going to buy and have engraved), an annual prize who’s status will test the boundaries of relationships.

Now I understand this is all extremely exciting, and you can all forget certain important and vital dates, and so you simply need to see below:
