Beat The Streets Fundraiser

By April 18, 2010 5 Comments

On Saturday, May 15th at 1pm we’ll be throwing a workout / BBQ / fundraising extravaganza in support of Steve’s Club! For every $1k raised, we can sponsor an at-risk athlete for an entire year. All donations go directly to the gyms that will train specific kids and teens in tough neighborhoods to get them off the streets and into CrossFit.

This is a great cause and should be a lot of fun!

Join A Team!

This is a team competition – each team will consist of 4 athletes (including at least 1 female athlete.)  If you have three friends in mind already, sign up a complete team. Otherwise, sign up as an individual and we’ll match you up to make full teams!

Raise Some Money!

We ask that each participant contribute a minimum of $20.  This can be a personal contribution, or you can collect donations from other people!  Unfortunately we can’t accept credit cards for this event, so please bring cash or a check!

If you’re interested in raising a larger amount of money, please donate directly to Steve’s Club via their website and bring a printed out copy of your donation receipt along on May 15th.

The Workout!

As many reps as possible in 15 min:
Station 1: Burpees
Station 2: KB Swings (1.5 pood / 1 pood)
Station 3: Pull-ups (chest to bar)
Run 200m

All athletes begin at the same time and switch when the runner returns. When the runner comes back in, he/she goes to Station 1 (Burpees) and everyone goes to the next station (Burpees goes to KB Swings, KB Swings go to Pull-ups, Pull-ups go to the run).

Scoring

Count total # of reps (sum of Burpees, KB Swings, and Pullups), team with the highest # wins.

Standards

KB swingBottom of the KB must face the ceiling, judges should be able to see the athlete’s ears.
BurpeesAthlete must touch their chest to the floor on each rep, how they get down/up is up to them (no pushup is required), and must clap overhead at the top as they jump (should be able to see their ears).
Pull-up (chest to bar)Athlete can do whatever type of pull-up they like, as long as their chest (anything below clavicle) touches the bar.

Transitions

Athletes can only switch stations once they get a high-five from their teammate (prevents athletes from leaving early). During the high-five, the athlete that has just finished at that station will give the arriving athlete the “count” of what they are up to. For example, Athlete A is on burpees, and when Athlete D comes in from the run, Athlete A has done 20 burpees and tells Athlete D “20” and Athlete D begins counting with 21 (this is easier than trying to add it all up at the end).

Scaling

Teams are welcome to scale the workout as necessary.  However, teams that scale the workout (apart from the standard male/female scaling) will not be eligible to win prizes.

Prizes!

Prizes will be awarded on a nationwide basis to the team that achieves the highest score on an unscaled version of this workout.

  • 1st place – 3 months supply of PaleoKits = $450 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits sent each month)
  • 2nd place – 2 months supply of PaleoKits = $300 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits sent each month)
  • 3rd place – 1 months supply of PaleoKits = $150 Value (Package of 25 Large PaleoKits sent each month)

The Afterparty

Following the workout we will be grilling / hanging out / drinking.  Feel free to join us!
