We are using the popular rotating format from the 2013 Flex On The Beach and 2014 Flex NYC. Three workouts per team with one rest period. The rest period gives athletes an opportunity to watch friends compete, visit vendor booths, eat, etc.
We are using the standard Flex Event format where teams act as judges for each other. We’ve used it for years and the athletes love it. The quality of judging is better, athletes are more engaged and standards are more closely met throughout the competition.
There is a Championship WOD and podium finishers for Rx and Scaled Divisions. Strive Division teams do not participate in a Championship WOD…which means they can cheer on the other teams from your Box or hit the Bar Crawl early.
All Flex events use what we call “athlete judging”. Athletes competing in the event judge each other to ensure standards are consistently met throughout the day.
Prepare to WOD in the shadow of The Washington Monument. Literally.
