NWK CrossFit has been open for three years now and running their own local throw down called the Stand Alone Series for the past two years. The Stand Alone Series comprises of two separate throwdowns per year, one in summer, and one in the winter. Over the two years the popularity of this event has grown at a rapid rate, due to this, the event has quite literally outgrown the box and our equipment levels!
With 70 athletes competing and a further 15 on the waiting list, they are hosting the final Summer series on 16th July 2016 at their NWK box, before the event moves to larger premises in time for the winter series! The event sold out within 2 hours, something Sam from NWK says was both humbling and exciting, as it showed the true potential of the event and the ability to take the Stand Alone Series to the next level.
The winter throwdown, the first outside of NWK’s box, will be held at Medway Park with seating for 1000 spectators, and an extensive standing spectator area. This really shows how far the event has come in such a short space of time!
Interested in attending/competing… well read on!
NWK will be opening up 100 individual Male, 100 individual Female athlete spots, and a further 30 male and 30 female master athlete spots. There are no qualifiers, just sign up and throw it down. The ages for the master categories is 40+. It’s hardly surprising to see why this event is so popular when the guys keep things that simple! The event day itself will comprise of 4 qualifying workouts, 1 semi final heat and 1 final heat.
Date of event: 26th November 2016. (0800-1800)
