The Interclass Throwdown – Saturday September 8th

The weekend of the Throwdown is finally upon us! All classes have put forth a formidable effort towards the competition rankings. We hope you’ve rallied together enough of your respective teams to settle the final scores throughout tomorrow’s workouts! The WODs will be released tomorrow on the day but once again here are their names for a little hint at what you could expect to see.

WOD 1: FML
WOD 2: Dirty Running and Rope Climbs
WOD 3: Ninjas and Sled Dogs
WOD 4: THE FINAL

Aim to arrive at the gym for 8:30 AM tomorrow as we’re going to start to kick off WOD 1 around 9:00 AM!

The event is due to run until around 1:00 PM with food, drinks, nibbles, and celebrations to ensue.

The event is FREE to attend for all members – and you can sign up HERE for the event on Pike.
