The Crawfish Challenge has always been an “everyman/woman’s” competition with WODs suitable for MOST functional fitness levels. WODs will have ascending weights, heights, reps, movement complexities etc. so that all levels may participate and some athletes will be able to progress further based upon ability!

There will be NO minimum work requirement for ANY WOD or ANY partner, so any level athlete may participate with one another! The 2017 Crawfish Challenge also has some incredible opportunities for Sponsors, Vendors, Prize Sponsors and more!
