Event Info


With rain in the forecast for Saturday in the Indianapolis area, please be aware of the following regarding the competition:

  • Bring weights to safely hold down your team tents. The tent areas are over grass, so stakes will help, but sandbags or other additional weights are recommended.
  • Be aware of slick conditions. You will be competing on both a turf field and on the grass/muddy Cross-Country course.
  • Bring dry clothes, shoes, towels, umbrellas, etc.


🌧 💧 In the case of wet conditions or light rain:

  • Events will continue as planned. Modifications to workouts and movements may be implemented to keep the athletes safe and equipment from getting ruined.


⛈⚡️ In the case of lightning or heavy storms:

  • Participants will be directed to go inside Park Tudor School’s Varsity Gymnasium or to your vehicle until the storm passes and we are able to get back on the field safely.
  • Expect event delays. Any workout events missed during a rain delay will not be made up. Modifications to the movements that are safer in wet conditions will be made and we will finish out the day with whatever time we have left and whatever workout events we can fit in.


❌ If a decision is made to CANCEL THE EVENT, no makeup date will be scheduled, and all event donations will be given to Wheeler Mission and Outreach, Inc. A decision of this magnitude WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL SATURDAY MORNING and after all attempts to safely put on the event have been exhausted.


🕵️‍♂️Please keep an eye out on our Facebook page for additional announcements.

This one-day affiliate challenge will include 12 member co-ed teams (5 men, 5 women, 2 judges), each competing in various workouts to be judged and scored based on the standards set by local CrossFit affiliate owners. A component of the competition will be fundraising to help the homeless.

2019 Event Day Map

WOD Reveals

Event 1 - Fundraising

Event 2/3 - Cross Country

Score A:
4 athletes from each team (2 men, 2 women) will begin the 3.5km cross country course with a #20 tactical vest and a #14 tactical vest worn by two of the athletes. The athletes may switch vests between the four of them at any time during the race, as often or as little as they like. When the final athlete from this pack crosses the finish line, their time will stop as score A for the team.

Score B:
The remaining 6 athletes from each team (3 men, 3 women) will also run the entire 3.5km cross country course. No one in this group will have to wear a vest and cannot take a vest from the group of 4. When the 6th athlete from this group crosses the finish line, their time will stop as score B for the team.

The course runs around Park Tudor’s campus and covers grass, pavement, gravel, and dirt; teams will face hills and valleys, slightly uneven ground, and wooded segments. There will be lines marking the course as well as judges placed in tricky areas to guide teams in the correct direction to ensure that there is no cutting corners or getting lost.

Strength Event:
Each athlete will have 2:00 to build to a max weight in the following complex:
1 Snatch + 1 Overhead Squat
The initial snatch will begin with the barbell on the ground and end with the barbell overhead, moving there in one smooth motion (ie no stopping on the shoulders). This can be a power snatch or full squat. Split snatching is not allowed. Once the athlete is standing with the hips and knees extended and the barbell overhead, the overhead squat can begin. The rep will count when the hip crease has gone below the knee and the athlete has returned to fully extended hips and knees with the bar still overhead. These are two separate movements. If the athlete chooses to do a squat snatch for the first rep, they still have to perform an overhead squat to finish the complex. There will be two scores for this event: the total combined weight of the heaviest successful attempt from all 5 men and the total combined weight of the heaviest successful attempt from all 5 women.

*See map for reference. Note that the Start and Finish Line will be on the football field track.

Event 4 - Plate Push and Mini-Chipper

Event 5 - Waterfall Griff
