Having a date on the calender can really dial in your training! You've heard us say it before, and we just posted the info on the Emerfit games on November 6th and 7th. Well, we just got word from MBS CrossFit that they'll be hosting a little something on Saturday November 20th. The day will include a 5k, a CrossFit Total, and a WOD. The Earn Your Turkey CrossFit Challenge sounds like a great time! Another opportunity to test yourself and to represent Evolve! Here's the skinny:
Saturday, November 20th 2010. Athlete check in will begin at 7:00 AM Saturday morning. The run will start shortly after 8:00 AM and the day should end in the late afternoon. Detailed schedule will be coming shortly.

5 K Run
The run consists of mostly sidewalk and street with potential to go off-road, but only for a short time. It is not flat, so don't expect to beat your best 5k time! Male and female top runner will get prize package from one of our sponsors – TBA! Check out this google map for the tenative run route.
The CrossFit Total is a test of strength consisting of the back squat, press, and deadlift. There will be a short rest following the 5k run before doing the Total. The lifts will be done in the order of squat, press, and deadlift. You will have 3 attempts at max for each lift. Your total score is the combined "good" lifts of all 3 exercises. This may be an oppurtunity for a PR! Men's and Women's Total winners recieve a gift from one of our sponsors – TBA!
The final WOD will be announced following the 5k run. Expect something in the shorter timeframe (under 15 min) that doesn't include a 5k run or heavy squat, deadlift, or press. This WOD will be scaled for the different classes (Elite, Open, and Intermediate). See classes below for more info. The Men's and Women's winners of the Turkey will get a frozen turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner!
Overall Men and Women's Elite, Open, and Intermediate winners will recieve prize packages TBA. In addition, winners of the Run, Total, and Turkey WOD will recieve individual prize packages TBA.
Men's/Women's Elite – can perform all Crossfit-style workouts as prescribed with no substitutions. May include handstand pushups, muscle ups, pistols, and Olympic lifts.
Men's/Women's Open – can perform most Crossfit-style workouts as Rx with few modifications. Will not include handstand pushups, muscle ups, pistols.
Men's/Women's Intermediate – can perform basic bodyweight, barbell, and Olympic movements with modifications. Scaling will be allowed in Intermediate class.

Food and Drinks
I am working on having food and drinks available at our facility during the event. I will post information about this later on if it is available. Otherwise, athletes and spectators should plan on bringing their own food. Or, many paleo-freindly restraunts are under 5 minutes away.
Following the final WOD we are having an afterparty. Details will come soon.
The only workout outside is the 5k run, so be prepared to run in rain, snow, or sunshine!
