Scoring

Scoring will work “Open-style”: top 3 male and top 3 female athletes from each affiliate will score based on their place finish in each event.  Athletes may score in any event regardless of attendance at other events.

The ultimate series winner will be the affiliate with the least points after all 4 events have been completed. In the event of a tie, a 5th tie-breaking event will be held.

As last year, an Rx division and Scaled division trophy will be awarded.

Registration

All athletes MUST register for each individual event in advance via EventBrite in order to participate.  Each event will be capped at 100 total participants, so we strongly advise you to register early!

Each WOD will be scored separately, earning each athlete a place for each WOD. Lowest times for the first two and heaviest load successfully lifted on the clean and jerk will win each event. The combined score for all three WODs will be the athlete’s score for the day, i.e., placing 1st in all three events would earn the athlete the best possible total score of 3. Lowest combined score wins. One second will be added to the 5 minute time cap for any reps not completed on the first two WODs.
