“Mayhem in the Meadowlands” is inviting CrossFit affiliates, CrossFitters and all other athletes to compete in a “football” themed CrossFit challenge at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. This is a CrossFit event for ATHLETES OF ALL LEVELS–BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED.
From the Weekend Warrior to the Elite Athlete… everybody is welcome! This is an opportunity for everyone to compete on the turf in MetLife Stadium where the NY Giants and the NY Jets kick off every Sunday!
Due to the nature of the stadium and its connection with the NFL, the event will be themed around the College/NFL Combine. This is a new and unique approach to the CrossFit workout that adds an additional component of football exercises.
This combination of CrossFit and football is a new twist and will be fun for the football fan and CrossFit athlete alike.
How will the competition work?
This is a Team competition. Each team will be made up of 3 athletes. ONLY 300 TEAMS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Each team will enter one of the following divisions:
- Men’s Scaled (Novice)
- Women’s Scaled (Novice)
- Men’s Rx (Intermediate and Above)
- Women’s/Rx (Intermediate and Above)
- Co-Ed Rx (Intermediate and Above)
- Police/Fire/EMS/Military (Intermediate and Above)
We will divide the teams into their respective categories. The teams will then be sent to different starting points on the turf and within the stadium to begin their competition. Each team will compete in 3 rigorous workouts during the course of the event. We will allow 2 hours for all teams to complete the workout before they move on to the next challenge.
Over the course of the day the groups will have rotated through all 3 workout stations plus a fourth station for athletes and their families to take tours of the stadium, including the Giants’ and Jets’ locker rooms.
For the final event, the top 3 teams in each category will compete in a 4th and final workout on the turf in front of an audience of over 2,000 people.
How much does it cost?
The entry fee is $450 per team. The entry fee gets you into the competition, a limited edition Mayhem in the Meadowlands t-shirt, a full tour of the stadium, including the Giants’ and Jets’ locker rooms, full access to the Family Day events, access to Vendor Village, and snacks and beverages all day long.
