Fraser Valley Throwdown debuting on Saturday

CrossFit sports event runs all weekend long at Abbotsford Centre

A competitor gets set to lift at the Okanagan Valley Throwdown earlier this year. The first-ever Fraser Valley Throwdown runs on Saturday and Sunday at Abbotsford Centre.

The CrossFitters are coming.

For the first time ever, Abbotsford will host the Fraser Valley Throwdown this Saturday and Sunday at Abbotsford Centre.

The event, presented by Hoodoo Adventure Company and Evolution Athletics in partnership with CrossFit Abbotsford, will challenge and showcase athletes competing in several different team and individual divisions of CrossFit sports.

The Throwdown Series competitions are designed for athletes who participate in CrossFit competitively and at the recreational level.

Athletes battle it out in a number of weightlifting, agility and cardiovascular competitions. Some of the movements at the event may include: pullups, clean-and-jerks, handstand pushups and pistol squats.

Divisions at the event include recreational and competitive male and female, master male and female, and team recreational and competitive.

Individual participants will compete in four workouts throughout the two-day event, with the top performers in each division moving on to a fifth and final workout on Sunday afternoon.

Teams will compete in three workouts with the top performers in each division moving on to a fourth and final workout on Sunday afternoon.

To prevent athletes from training specifically for the workouts and to further reward inclusive and well-rounded fitness, workout descriptions and movement standards are not revealed until just days before the event.

Tickets for the event are $8 for a one-day pass or $14 for two days. A family of four can attend for $30 for one day or $40 for both days.
