08/25/11 – Northeast Throwdown + 31 Heroes WOD + CHALK!

Nasty Northeast Throwdown – Sign Up Here

The Nasty Northeast Throw down is a competition designed to support the integrity of what CrossFit really is: a no-frills community of athletes based on strength, speed, agility, and endurance.  Challenge is what drives us to compete every day –against ourselves, the clock, and any worthy adversary.  Why not represent your skills with other like-minded athletes over a succession of 8 weeks? What we’re creating here is simple: show up and workout — something you’re already doing, taken to the next level.  All we ask is that you get down, get nasty, and get CrossFit.

The Nasty Northeast Throw down will take place every other week over 8 weeks (4 competitions total). Each week is not mandatory, however, teams will lose points based on missed weeks. WODs are based on a point system and are announced on-location. Competitions will take place across four different locations, each location TBA one week before. Teams will consist of 4 people and there is no limit of teams from each box.   The cost per team is $200.

31 Heroes WOD – Sign Up Here – @ CrossFit 908 on Saturday, September 3 @ 9am.

On September 3, 2011 CrossFit gyms across the nation and world will gather together to honor our heroes killed in action August 6, 2011 with a workout in an effort to raise funds for the families affected by this tragedy. All funds received will go to these families through the Navy SEAL Foundation, other like-organizations, & individual family funds.

  1. I sent Bill over at crossfit ACT (nasty northeast throwdown) an email this morning asking if there was any talk about rescheduling the event for this Sunday due to the possible hurricane, and how atheletes would be notified if there was a change. I know personally living across from the beach that we get flooding and if the rain and wind is as bad as they are predicting I will not be able to make it. I will let eveyone know what he writes back.

  2. Thanks for asking, Jason–I’ve been wondering if they are going to reschedule it. I don’t think anyone is going to want to be driving around on Sunday, with the way they are talking about it now. I’ll check back for updates. Thanks!

  3. FYI according to an e-mail from CrossFit ACT:

    Weather update… Hurricane Irene.

    Hey everyone, we are following the weather as close as anyone can, but we are not
    going to rush to cancel the opening day of the Nasty Northeast Throwdown. We will
    be taking it day by day and come to a final desision late Saturday afternoon. Our
    concern is not for our facility, but for athletes and travel safety. We have people
    representing Crossfit boxes from the far reaches of NJ, NY and Conn. and don’t want
    to put anyone into harms way.
    Please check your email and http://www.crossfitact.com

  4. For anyone attending my show on Saturday, as of now we’re 95% cancelled. We’re just going to call the bar tomorrow and double check, but when we asked today, they plan on boarding up sometime tomorrow night and being closed for the weekend.

  5. Would like to sign up for the 31heroes… but it’s for partners…. and I can’t run ( i can substitute rowing though). Any ideas/suggestions? Anyone need a partner?
