The #800g/Open MEGA Challenge

WHAT IS IT?

In years past, we have run a large intramural team competition for the annual CrossFit Open.  Unfortunately, this year, we aren’t able to do it.  So, we are adapting.  We are combining the #800g Challenge with the CrossFit Open for a MEGA Challenge!!!!!

Participants will be placed on one of four teams.  The teams will be captained by our new coaches:  Rachel, Leslie, Richard, and Carri.

The #800gChallenge was designed by OptimizeMe Nutrition. Eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, per day. 

No foods are eliminated, but only fruits and veggies count toward the 800g. Eat the fruits and veggies of your choice. Hit the macros you want.

Raw, cooked, canned, frozen; doesn’t matter!  If you can weigh it as a standalone and unprocessed fruit or vegetable, you can count it. Yep, that’s it! Here’s a one-sheet with all the rules.

Completing the challenge each day earns your points toward your team.

The CrossFit Open is the biggest egalitarian world wide fitness competition.  For three weeks, CrossFit will release special workouts with RX, Scales, and At-Home version.

Each week, team participants will be complete the workout and contribute to an overall team score.

At the end of the March, 2021, the team with the most points from the #800g Challenge and the Open wins!
