The Best UK Competitions: Autumn/Winter 2015
Rep It Out
When? 11th October 2015
Where? North Bridge Leisure Centre, Halifax
Rep It Out is a partner event, with 100 same sex teams battling it out for the prizes. It's an inclusive competition, and qualifiers took place over the summer - narrowing competitors down to 50 male teams, and 50 females. This is one of the few events to take place in Yorkshire this year, and promises to be lots of fun for athletes and spectators alike. If you've missed out on your chance to compete at Rep It Out this year, grab your spectator tickets here.
Battle of the Beasts
When? 25th October 2015
Where? Crowne Plaza Resort, Colchester.
Battle of the Beasts is arguably the UK's biggest single day event. This year, the venue's been upgraded to a 2,500 seater arena, complete with a Starbucks on site - we all know there's nothing worse than a competition without an adequate supply of coffee!
The team at CrossFit Colchester know what makes an awesome event and, if past competitions are anything to go by, this is not one you want to miss out on. 130 individuals (78 male and 52 female), will be WODing their hearts out for their share of the £5000 prize pot - who will be victorious? Get hold of your spectator tickets here to find out.
Divided We Fall Origins
When? 14-15th November 2015
Where? CrossFit 3D, Manchester.
Many know Divided We Fall as one of the original, and best, events in the UK competition calendar. The past couple of years saw the event change pace, upgrading to a huge venue (Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena) and moving away from the event's much loved, all-inclusive, community vibe.
This year, it's going back to basics. The event will take place at CrossFit 3D, in Manchester, and will return to the original format: no qualifiers and no frills - just an epic throwdown with boxes from across the UK.
Xendurance European Championships
When? 20-21st November 2015
Where? ExCel, London.
The Xendurance European Championships is probably the most exciting addition to the UK competition calendar in 2015. The aim of the event is to find the very best athletes from across Europe (individual and team) - with an incredible €50,000 prize fund.
The qualifying events are due to end on the 11th October. There are 36 male and female individual spaces up for grabs, as well as 12 spots in the Masters' categories - with one small caveat - a maximum of 4 athletes will be allowed from each country. Once the individual spots have been filled, the next six athletes will be invited to join their national team.
The unique qualifying process makes this one of the most exciting events taking place this winter, with the chance to see some of Europe's biggest names in action. Make sure you grab your spectator tickets, and get behind our UK athletes!
Strength in Depth
When? 28-29th November 2015
Where? Sports Village, Bath University.
Strength in Depth is a team competition, which started online at the start of August. It's open to CrossFit affiliates, as well as teams from other gyms, fitness clubs and even emergency response teams! It's an opportunity for the fittest people in Europe to test their skills against other boxes, sports and communities.
The online qualification rounds take place over three months, after which the top 40 teams are invited to take part in the SiD2015 final. This is a two-day competition, where the teams will put through their paces, completing five workouts to determine who will take home the £5000 prize.
That's our pick of the competitions - have we missed anything?
