What is it ???
Well - it's a 5k Race - CrossFit Diesel Style!

This is an open competition for all skill levels that will combine a total of 5 Kilometers of distance running with 5 tons of lifting in a fantastic 1-WOD/ 1-Day event. There will be Men's and Women's Rx'd divisions, as well as Men's & Women's scaled divisions. Our goal is to make this an inclusive and fun event for everybody!

The specific lifts & loads of the WOD will be announced at the event -
But just to give you a hint , workout lifts & loads will be based on
famous CrossFit benchmark girls. If you can do most of the Girl WOD
as Rx'd, you can finish this race Rx'd. But regardless, there are
scaled divisions - So everyone can get their "5 Tons of Fun" in!

The event will be held on Saturday, October 1st.
5 heats are scheduled to run every hour from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
We're planing on 70 total participants. All participants will get an awesome
"5 ton 5k" Tee shirt, and get to enjoy some grilling, beer and partying
after the event. Registration is open - Come on out!
