What is the Sussex Games?

Our mission is to deliver a fun, inclusive and scalable fitness competition. 

If you train in a CrossFit gym, the tests and movement standards will be familiar to you, with 4 workouts throughout the day. At the end of the day, the pair that, on average hold the highest position across all tests will be the winners. 

We aim to push those more experienced athletes as they fight to become the fittest pair in Sussex. While including a scaled option for those just starting a fitness journey.

The competition is same sex pairs.

 

When is it?

August 12th, with the first workout at 9am.

 

What are the categories?

We have a scaled and RX category. The movement standards for 'RX' are below. If you, or your partner feel this is too challenging then pick 'scaled'. At the scaled level, all abilities are welcome. The workouts will be adapted in the scaled division, but not in RX. 

Dumbell Snatch 20/15

Pull Ups 

Hand Stand Push Ups (very low volume)

Thrusters 40/30

 

How serious is this competition?

For the fire breathers in the RX comp, things get spicy. For 80% of our competitors its about having fun. We try to deliver a professionally run competition for people still new to CrossFit. 
Bring our family and friends to cheer along. There are bouncy castles, food vendors, stash suppliers. Its a great day out. 

 

What are the costs?

Entry is £15 each athlete. £30 a team. Free for spectators. 

The fee covers the leaderboard system, hiring bouncing castles, camera crews, insurances, prizes and much more. Any profit made from the competition, as always, will be donated to charity.
