Second Annual PipeHitters Classic

Posted in Competition on June 30, 2011 by oldcountrystrong

PipeHitters Classic
Horse Power, Strength, Determination

We’re not looking for the most “technical” athlete at PipeHitters.
Push, Pull, Carry, Move Weight
Raw power and a motor to dish it up are the only requirements for this year’s competition. Any athlete with the grit to drive against weight is welcomed to compete.

We are relocating from the park this year: SODO Crossfit will be hosting our event with CFWS supplying extra equipment. So if you’re ready to slug it out in the Seattle industrial area, register as soon as possible because we will only be taking the first 30 men and 30 women. Details and registration can be found here.

In memory of Tim Brenton, all proceeds will be donated to the Behind the Badge Foundation and Seattle Police Department Pipes & Drums.

And since I know you’re all dying to know, here’s a sneak peak…

Each athlete will be supplied two preloaded bars. Each bar will be resting on the ground at that designated athletes station. But the bars won’t be staying on the ground for long.

5 Minute AMRAP

7 Deadlifts 225/185
Zercher Walk 185/115

The Zercher distance will be released the day of competition along with a penalty that will be enforced if the bar is set down before it’s returned to its station. Get. Some.
