Delivering a CrossFit Games experience
Year after year, we’ve taken great pride in running an event that gives every local CrossFit athlete, from intermediate to advanced, a CrossFit Games experience. We do this by aligning great workouts, top athletes, awesome judging and volunteers, caring sponsors, and kick-ass fans at every event we hold. Fortunately, this job is made easy by having an awesome CrossFit community right here in our backyard!
Introducing the road to the Turkey Challenge!
PHASE 1 - ONLINE QUALIFIER
The online qualifier will be a whole other avenue to have fun and compete. You can program these workouts at your gym, do them in your garage, or challenge your friends. You’ll also have the ability to compete for some cash and awesome prizes from local sponsors.
Athlete registration goes live on Wednesday, August 28th.
Workout 1 will be announced Wednesday, September 4th.
Workouts 2 & 3 will be announced Wednesday, September 11th.
Athlete registration closes and all score submissions are due on Monday, September 16th at 7:59pm MST.
The divisions to compete will be as follows:
Masters 35-39, 40+, and Teen Individual
(all teams are 2 guy, 2 girl)
Open Divisions -
One thing that we need to make clear, if you want to compete in the Pro division at the Turkey Challenge, you will have to earn it! This, right here, is where it happens. All athletes that can do most, or all standard CrossFit workouts as prescribed and are up for the "full serving" of turkey challenge, should sign up in the Open Division. The programming for the Online Qualifier will be on the lighter side, allowing everyone to participate, but the cream will rise to the top. The top placing 12 individuals and 12 teams will receive an invite to the main event in November.
Masters 35-39, 40+, and Teen (14-17) Divisions -
We are making some changes to the age division athletes this year. What you see here is what will be competing in November. Athletes should sign up under the appropriate age division in the online qualifier per your age as of 12:00 am November 22nd, 2019. The top 4 placeholders in each division will be given an invite to the main event in November along with cash and prizes from the online qualifier.
Fun Teams -
The whole idea of this division being offered is to get with some friends and grab some great workouts in a great environment. Or, it could just be so you earn your pizza that weekend. There are no prizes for the Fun Division. However, if your team participates in the online qualifier, you will be given 2-hour access to register to the main event in November.
After the culmination of our Online Qualifier and once the qualifying performances are validated, emails will be sent out to the qualifiers and they will have 48 hours to confirm or deny registration. Denied, or unanswered invites will be given to the next athletes in line until the quota is filled. The remaining spots will be opened up to open registration.
PHASE 2: OPEN REGISTRATION
Following the Online Qualifier, and after qualifying spots have been filled, we will move to open, or regular registration. Open registration will take place on Tuesday, September 24th at 9am. Participants of the online qualifier will be emailed a registration link 2 hours in advance to beat the lines!
The number of athletes competing in each division has changed from previous years and they will likely go fast at open registration. If a division sells out, you can still be put on a waitlist by emailing email@example.com.
PHASE 3: TURKEY CHALLENGE
The main event will take place over 3 days Friday-Sunday, November 22-24th at the Sports Stable in Louisville, CO. Detailed schedule and many more details about the event will be posted on our blog and social media pages soon. We can't wait to see you at the 10th annual Turkey Challenge!
