ABOUT THE EVENT
IN SUPPORT OF THE CHARITY, BREAST CANCER NOW.
We will be doing “Grace” (30 clean & jerk for time) and we’ll also have a 1 RM clean & jerk competition, with prizes given out to the fastest “Grace” times for men and women in beginner, intermediate and Rx categories, the top 1 RM, and Best Dressed Athlete (think pink!).
The cost of the event is £16 to participate and all proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Now.
There are three Athlete Categories for the event: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. To be eligible for the prizes, athletes in the Beginner category will be using 35 kg (men) / 25 kg (women) for “Grace”. Athletes in the Intermediate category will be using 50 kg (men) / 35 kg (women) and athletes in the Rx category will be doing the workout as Rx, 60 kg (men) / 40 kg (women). The category you are in for “Grace” will be the same as the category you are in for the 1 RM Clean & Jerk.
Not quite at the beginner weights yet? Don’t worry, you can still participate! It is completely fine and we encourage you to scale the weights according to your ability.
