Saturday and Sunday January 14 & 15th – 2017
Hosted at CrossFit North Vancouver
The Icebreaker Challenge is a two day event combining Olympic Weightlifting and CrossFit to produce an overall winner for the weekend. All participants must compete in both days of competition. An outline of the format is below.
REGISTRATION IS LIVE HERE:
You should plan on being at the event from 9:30am to 5:30pm on Saturday with the ability to leave after your lifting session and come back in the evening for your first CrossFit Workout of the competition. On Sunday you should plan on being at the event 9:30am to 5pm. Sunday will start with a classic CrossFit Benchmark first thing and two more WODs will follow. After the 6 Events we will cut to the Top 6 Men and Top 6 Women for a final workout.
Saturday – Olympic Lifts & Event 3
You will have 10min to establish a Max Snatch followed by 10min to establish a Max Clean and Jerk. This is new. It gives us the opportunity to have DJ Ryhno spinning tunes and announcing each lift. It also creates excitement for the spectators and athletes putting them into their usual CrossFit Atmosphere.
Sunday – CrossFit Events and Final
You will complete 3 Events (4, 5, and 6 for the weekend). After Event 6 everyone will be ranked and the Top 6 Male and Females will move to the Final Event. This event is meant to be all inclusive until you reach the final. Once in the final the gloves come off and the athletes will be expected to perform and execute more difficult tasks.
The top 6 Males and top 6 Females will qualify for the Final. The Final will be a single event to determine the winner of the CFNV Challenge Yes, this means, the entire weekend is a buy in for the Final where the winner of the Final Event takes all!. This year the final with be “chase the rabbit” style where 1st will have an advantage over second, second over third, etc. This will be an amazing spectator event and a great way of keeping everyone shooting for the top 6 all weekend!
