WHAT IS THE HOPPER?

The Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge was initially created to be a fun competition for a few affiliates in the greater Baltimore-Washington D.C. area.  But once the ball was rolling and word got out, it grew to include competitors from ten different states and almost 100 competitors in its first year.  The top three males in 2008 were from Ohio, New York and Maryland.  The top three females were from Maryland and Virginia.
Each year the challenge has gotten bigger and better.  We expect to see even more competitors this year and in its fourth year, this challenge has become the premier fitness challenge of the Mid-Atlantic region, if not the entire east coast!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anybody.  Over the years, competitors have ranged in age from 10 to 60+.  There will be a cap of 120 this year on the number of athletes allowed to compete in the individual competition.  20 of those spots are reserved for the masters division if enough athletes over 45 want to compete.  In addition to the individual competition, there’s also a team competition of 20 four or five-man teams.  Competitors under 18 must have a parent with them to sign a waiver in order to participate.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

There is a $75 registration fee for all competitors in the individual competition and $325 for teams.  Your entry fee gets you into the competition, a limited-edition t-shirt that has been specially designed just for the challenge, miscellaneous snacks and beverages throughout the day.

WHEN IS THE CHALLENGE?

This year’s challenge will be held on Saturday and Sunday, November 12-13th, 2011.  Registration will begin on Friday night at 6:00 pm.  The draw for the first day’s WODs will be held on Friday night at 7:00 pm.  For those who are unable to check-in on Friday night, check-in will continue on Saturday morning at 7:00 am.  The competition will kick-off at 8:00 am on Saturday.  The day will probably end around five or six.  Sunday will begin around 9:00 am.  The day will probably end around 3:00 pm with an awards ceremony to recognize the top performers in each event and the overall teams and male and female winners.
