Defend The Den will include the “Hammer” Hero WOD, which is part of the Hero Challenge.

A “Floater” event will be available for competitors to complete during the day at their convenience. Competitors can have more than one attempt at this event.

There will be 2 additional events that will be released in the weeks leading up to the competition.

Heat times will be released in the week leading up to the event. Competitors will receive an email notification.

We strongly encourage athletes to compete in the RX division if they are able to complete most WODs as prescribed. Please only choose the scaled division if both you and your partner are unable to complete most day-to-day workouts as prescribed (RX).

Yes! If you’d like to do both, we’ll make sure your volunteering doesn’t interfere with your heat times.

Defend The Den requires a team of two athletes. Since this is an in-house throwdown, each team must have at least one athlete from CrossFit Advantage, however the second athlete can be anyone who wants to compete as long as they are qualified. Team mates must be the same gender (males with males, females with females) and able to compete in the same division (RX’d versus Scaled).

Your partner should be someone with a similar skill level to your own. If you regularly complete RX’d workouts, you should feel comfortable in the RX division. Please only choose the scaled division if both you and your partner are unable to complete most workouts as prescribed.
