4th Annual Carolina Fitness Challenge
The 4th Annual Carolina Fitness Challenge returns to the Bull City on Saturday, January 12th!
Last year’s event was a huge success with 175 competitors, 500+attendees, and a large donation made to The Animal Protection Society of Durham. This year will feature an even bigger crop of competitors, spectators, events, sponsors, and fun in the newly expanded gym at CrossFit Durham! A portion of proceeds from this year’s event will again benefit the APS of Durham.
The Carolina Fitness Challenge is modeled on the CrossFit Games and seeks to determine the Fittest Man and Fittest Woman in North Carolina, as well as serve as a tune up for athletes hoping to compete in the 2013 CrossFit Games.
The Challenge will take place on Saturday, January 12th. Athlete check-in will begin at 7am. The first events will begin soon after 8:30am and the day will likely end sometime in the late evening. A more detailed schedule will of the day’s events will be posted soon.
