Granite Games Fall Throwdown - Rocky Top CF / Knoxville, TN

Onsite Competition for Teams

Event description

The Granite Games Throwdown gives athletes new to competition an opportunity to challenge themselves and have a blast doing it!

Our 3-person, same gender team setup allows you to step out onto the competition floor with your best lifting buddies to experience the best of both worlds: all the fun of competition, without that nerve-wracking feeling of going it alone!

Pick your division…

Scaled: For those who are new to competing, share a common goal of functional fitness, and are working toward mastering their skills.

Intermediate: The perfect fit for athletes who love the thrill of competition and have a passion for functional fitness, but who don’t typically RX daily workouts and may not have yet mastered all movements. Typical RX athletes may also register under this division.

For all workouts and standards head to our website: https://thegranitegames.com/throwdown-compete/

To set you up for success when you arrive onsite, here’s what you need to know:

Check- In - All athletes must check in at Rocky Top CF between 7:00 am and 8:00 am the day of the event.

Where Am I Going? – Check-in occurs at Rocky Top  1412 N. 6th Ave.  Knoxville, TN 37917

Parking – There's parking available, but it's tricky.  We have a few spaces in the small RTCF lot, there are more behind the orange warehouse, there is parking across the street on Pratt Street and parking the next block across the street on Cottage St. You can park from the road to the greenway on both streets. Please do not park on 6th Ave.

Come Prepared – You’ll need to provide a valid ID to complete check-in. We should have room for most of the athletes to set up camp inside. We will have food on site for competitors and spectators. We'll have Clean Eatz for breakfast, coffee, lunch and good, clean food, and Nutrishop will be here with all the bars and supplements you'll need. We will have a PhysioLab Physical Therapy onsite for all your PT needs. We will have 7Five Clothing for your shopping enjoyment! We will have the InBody Body Composition Scan available for $10 as well if you'd like to try that to see what you're made of.  

You'll also want to bring whatever you want to sit on inside (we have lots of inside space), maybe a tent (just in case you want to set up outside) 

Please do not bring pets inside, as we will have a very full house  

No Take-Backs – Life happens—we totally get that. But please be aware that if you cannot participate in the weekend’s events, we cannot offer a refund for any reason.

Trading Places – You can substitute an athlete up until the day of the competition!
