2017 Barnyard Throwdown Introduction

Welcome to the Barnyard Throwdown Registration.

Barnyard Throwdown will be on April 1, 2017


The Barnyard Throwdown will be a 3 person Team Competition where each Team will be required to have 2 guys and 1 Girl. This year just like previous years event is all about coming and having fun. There will not be your regular judges for each event but there will be counters at any movement for the WOD to keep up with total reps. We will lay out a range of motion for each exercise before the WOD, and we will expect everyone to do their reps to the full range and the standard which we all would strive for everyday in CrossFit. The counter will however make sure that you are doing your reps correctly and let you know if your range of motion starts to drop off.

There will only be one division this year for the Throwdown but all WODs should be doable for most average crossfitter. There will be awards for top 3 teams. There will also be an after party offsite to follow at Harp and Clover.

Our Title Sponsor this year is Wright Equipment and will be selling all the equipment used in Barnyard Throwdown at a discounted price. Great way to pick up some extra gear that has already been field tested for your Box! We will be listing the rest of our sponsors on our Facebook page so make sure to Like our Page Barnyard Throwdown to stay up to date with any news we have concerning other sponsors or possible tweaks to WOD’s. We will be posting pics of the event T-shirts and Venue soon.
