About the event
Monkey-Box presents Scale the Heights Throwdown 2015
An old school CrossFit males and females individuals and masters competition designed specifically for the people who make our community special. The regular hard working box athletes who turn up week after week simply to make themselves better at everyday life. The movement standards throughout the competition’s stages are designed to be achievable for the majority of athletes. Scale the Heights Throwdown offers more opportunities for participants to be able to progress from the online qualifiers to take part in the June second round events on route to the Grand Final in September at Reebok CrossFit 3D Manchester. The emphasis here is on celebrating your fitness and enjoying being part of the wider community, so book your place and get involved. You stand an increased chance of making it to a second round event either by qualifying for a guaranteed place in your category or finishing in the top 500 runner up participants and being selected as a Monkey-Box-Wild Card participant for the second round events. One price, more chances to progress. Compete, support, and enjoy the occasion with athletes, coaches, WODs and music in the places where it really matters. Back in the boxes! 3 online qualifiers. 4 boxes. 1 community.
Participants complete the online qualifiers in May and submit their scores via WODcast. The top 90 placed participants are guaranteed invites to the second round events. The remaining 180 second round places will be randomly drawn as special Monkey-Box-Wild Card invitationals from the remaining top 500 runners up. Get through the second round and compete at Reebok CrossFit 3D Manchester in September. One price, more opportunities to be part of something special, so get involved and celebrate your fitness!
