5 Ton 5K / Mid-Atlantic

CrossFit Diesel presents the 3rd annual Mid-Atlantic 5Ton 5K,
An open CrossFit competition for all skill levels that combines a total of 5 kilometers of distance with 5 cumulative tons of lifting in an epic 1-WOD / 1-Day event. With Rx and scaled divisions for men, women, and teams, the 5Ton 5K is an inclusive and fun event for everybody!

When:
Individuals: Saturday, Sept. 29th
Teams: Sunday, Sept. 30th

Where:
Columbia, MD

How Heavy?
This competition's lifts & loads are based on the famous 15 CrossFit "Benchmark Girls". If you can go Rx'd on the load of the "Benchmarks", you can finish the 5Ton 5K as Rx'd. If you can't - No Worries! Our Scaled divisions will still get their 5 Tons of Fun in, just with less load on the bar

After Party?
ABSOLUTLY! Each competition day concludes with a presentation of awards and a barbecue celebration for competitors, spectators, sponsors, volunteers, and staff.

The Goal of the event is to promote fitness for individuals of all ages and ability levels throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, through friendly competition in a supportive community.

To Register as an Individual: Click Here and schedule yourself for either:
9:00 am (available)
10:30 am (available)
12:00 noon (available)
or 1:30 pm (available)

New This Years: Is the inclusion of a Team Competition. On Sunday, teams of 2 Men and 2 Women will complete a total of 5 Tons and 5 Kilometers, individually (that's ~20 Tons & 20K total, for those keeping score). This ain't no 5 minute WOD, folks!


To Register a Team, Click Here and schedule your team for either:
10:00 am (available)
11:30 am (available)
or 1:00 pm (available)
We look forward to seeing you there!

Re: 5 Ton 5K / Mid-Atlantic

My wife and I did this last year, and it was a great event. I think there was a great balance of challenge and inclusiveness.

This year, we're getting some friends together and doing the team division. Is there anything you can tell us about the format of the team competition? I know you're not releasing the workouts yet, but can you answer either of these questions?
  • Is it a relay, or will team members be working concurrently?
  • If it's not a relay, how will the teams be scored? (average time?, best time? slowest time? something else?)
Thanks for any info.

Also, since David asked, this was last year's format:

Men's Rx'd (Division A)

15 Clean (135#)
15 Front Squat (135#)
1250 Meter Run (Pavement, Grass & LOTS of Gravel)
25 Push Press (115#)
1250 Meter Run
10 Clean (135#)
10 Front Squat (135#)
1250 Meter Run
15 Push Press (115#)
1250 Meter Run

Women's Rx'd / Men's Scaled (Division B)

15 Clean (95#)
15 Front Squat (95#)
15 Deadlift (95#)
1250 Meter Run (Pavement, Grass & LOTS of Gravel)
25 Push Press (75#)
1250 Meter Run
10 Clean (95#)
10 Front Squat (95#)
10 Deadlift (95#)
1250 Meter Run

Re: 5 Ton 5K / Mid-Atlantic

Hi Richard!

Team members will be working congruently. Each team member will accumulate a total of 5 Kilometers (individually) during the Team WOD. In regards to lifting, each team member will contribute to a 20 Ton lifting total.

Re: 5 Ton 5K / Mid-Atlantic

No worries, it was my gym, Crossfit Manassas, that took the last two spots.

Thanks for letting me know.
