    CATEGORIES

    Wanting to be an internationally recognized championship, the vast majority of existing categories to date will be incorporated, thus having a participation of the highest number possible of athletes in the qualifying phases.

    • Rx elite m/f
    • Rx intermediate m/f
    • Scaled m/f
    • Master +35 m/f
    • Master +40 m/f
    • Master +45 m/f

    • Rx Team
    • Scaled Team

    The 40 best male athletes and 20 best female athletes in this category, will have the opportunity to face each other throughout the weekend in our WODs, which will be designed with the aim of finding the fittest athlete.

    The next 20 athletes in the RX category who do not get a place, will have the opportunity to face each other to fight for the podium in a new one, here there will also be cash prizes. This category is intended to give more opportunities to fight for a prize, and it will also be important for the scaled category to continue climbing with the aim of becoming an RX.

    This category is designed for those athletes who do not meet the minimum requirements for a rx, or they do not efficiently control them. Here you will have the opportunity to start competing without having a very demanding level, so you can experience the sensations and stress of a competition, and be more prepared for your rise to the premier category.

    With the rise of this category we will give 60 athletes the opportunity to face each other in the final.

    They will have the same tests, except for the category + 45, which will have a reduction in weight of approximately 20%. The movements and weights will be the same as the rx, here the only difference is age, an influential factor in the world of competition.

    1. Master + 35: 20 men and 10 women
    2. Master + 40: 20 men and 10 women
    3. Master + 45: 10 men and 5 women
    4. Master + 50: 10 men

    The category of the youngest and future promises of our sport, 15 boys and 10 girls in this category will be measured to achieve their victory, these will be teenagers who are 15 years old and up to 17 years old, and who are not yet 18 years old the same days that the event is held.

    A category that is having great acceptance, here scaled teams we will also be incorporated, Rx teams and Scaled teams will face each other on the days of the event.

    The teams of both will be formed by 2 men and 1 woman, the movements and weights will be to Rx standard, and those of scaled to scaled standard.

    In total there will be 20 RX teams and 20 Scaled teams.

    PRIZES

    This is one of the parts where we also want to differentiate ourselves from the rest of championships. We will have cash prizes for all the categories, since we want to reward the effort made by all competitors who attend the event, both for the previous preparation, as well as the economic expense for assistance.
