2021 Turkey Challenge Dates Announced
Updated: Aug 15, 2021
It is with great excitement that we are kicking off our 12th annual Turkey Challenge season! Read below for important dates and instructions for athletes, volunteers, and sponsors.
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-level 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!
Whether or not you are a competitive athlete, the Turkey Challenge has always been an event you can count on to get an ultimate experience! Having an online qualifier only allows us to improve that service to you!
Your road map to the Turkey Challenge this November...
Phase 1 - Online Qualifier
The Online Qualifier is a way to pre-test athletes & teams on their fitness levels as well as improve the quality of the event. The Online Qualifier is also an additional avenue to have fun and compete. The programming is flexible enough that you can do these workouts at your gym or garage, and can do them with fairly minimal equipment. In addition to competing for an invitation to the limited number of spots available at the onsite Championship in November, you are able to win some awesome prizes from local sponsors.
Online Qualifier Schedule:
Athlete registration goes live on Monday, August 16th.
3 Workouts will be announced Monday, September 6th
Athletes and teams will have two weeks to complete the workouts and submit their scores. Drop dead date for score and video submission is Monday, September 20th at 7:59 pm MST.
The divisions to compete will be as follows:
Male/Female Individual - Rx, Open, 14-17 Teen, 40+ Master
4-Person Team - Rx, Open
A description of Rx/Open Load List is posted here.
Cost to register for the Online Qualifier is $20 Individuals, $80 teams of 4.
All teams will consist of 2 guys and 2 girls. For the online qualifier, Team Captains will enter all four team members' names and information at registration. Up to 1 athlete swap will be allowed for any reason during Online Qualifier. Team workouts will not require all athletes to be in the same place at once.
Phase 2: Onsite Championship Registration
Once the Online Qualifier closes and all score submissions have been received and confirmed, registration for the onsite Championship will begin. It will take place in 3 stages:
Top placing athletes and teams within each division of the Online Qualifier will be invited to compete in the final heats of the onsite Championship in November. Those familiar with competing know the advantage of later heats ;). The number of invitations will depend on the number of athletes/teams registered within the division for the Online Qualifier. Invitations will be sent to athletes and team captains by Friday, September 24th and will be given a limited time to accept or decline the invitation. We reserve the right to decide whether or not declined invitations will be forwarded to the next placeholders in line.
Once all invitations have been sent, the remaining OQ participants will be given 24-48 hours early access to register for available spots. The number of spots available will depend on the number of signups for the Online Qualifier.
Regular registration will open Monday, October 4th. As there are a limited number of spots available at the onsite Championship event, it is encouraged to do the Online Qualifier to guarantee getting a spot. We always use a standby list, so if a division is sold out, immediately email email@example.com to be put on the list.
Phase 3: Turkey Challenge Championship
The main event will take place over 2 days Saturday-Sunday, November 20-21st at the Sports Stable in Superior, CO. A detailed schedule and many more details about the event, including the CrossFit Kids competition will be posted on our blog and social media pages coming soon.
