It seems there is some confusion regarding the Throwdown at the Europa Expo and how it pertains to the Beast of the East. Sorry for that but I wanted to clear it up for you here.
The Throwdown at the Europa Expo in June is a 1 day event. 100 individuals and 2o teams of 4 will compete on Saturday June 28th. The use of the word qualifier is what’s causing some confusion. It’s actually less of a true qualifier and more of a chance to win a free slot at the Beast of the East in October. The 1st place male/female and team from the Europa Throwdown will automatically be registered for a free slot at the BOE.
The Beast of the East is a 3 day full on competition and fitness festival taking place October 12-14th. 200 individuals and 40 – 4 person teams will compete for the title of Beast of the East.
Hopefully that clears things up a bit. See you all in June…and October!
Last year CrossFit Shoreline dominated the team event at the 2011 Beast ofthe East. This year they have already dominated the Reebok CrossFit Open and they look like they have a great shot at making the 2012 CrossFit Games. Whether you are going to the CrossFit Games or not we want your teams at the Beast this year.
This week we took a call from the owner of Cynergy CrossFit who’s box is so excited to compete in the Beast that they are talking about fielding 5 or 6 teams. Now that’s a fight box for sure. With the explosion of CrossFit into the mainstream and dozens of boxes opening every month in the northeast and elsewhere we are counting on selling the team event out quickly.
Once the regionals are settled there will be a huge interest in the next high profile event and it doesn’t get any higher than the 3 day Beast of the East competition. There are only 35 team spots left as of this posting. Please register early to ensure your team has their spot secured.
