On Sunday, August 10, 2014, Guardian Storage and CrossFit 519 will be hosting the first ever CrossFit 5K to come to Pittsburgh. This will be a 5K like you have never experienced. Whether you are a veteran CrossFitter, or just starting out, this 5k will challenge you and push you to the next level. The event will include a 5k run with CrossFit elements fitted throughout. So, for those of us who like running, but not long distances, this will be a great way to break it up. For those who love to run long distances, this will be a great challenge changing up what you are used to.
Not only will this event be fun and exciting for all of us, you will also be helping the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Pittsburgh 50 Finest. By signing up and participating, you will be making a difference in the lives of those suffering with Cystic Fibrosis and help add more tomorrow.
Registration is $50 for now and will go up to $65 at some undetermined time. Each person will compete as an individual, but we would like to form a “team” by signing up as a Gym and wearing our Industrial Athletics or CrossFit Alloy gear. The first heat is scheduled to launch at 8am. Registration will be at 7am. Packet/bib pick-up will happen prior to race day! CrossFit stations will be a surprise the day of the event, but you can expect movements to include pushups, handstand pushups, wall balls, sit ups, kettle bell swings, burpees, and more.
We would love to see lots of participants. Let us know if you have any questions.
