Lumberjack 20 Competition and PR for Pat Fundraiser
Our friends at CrossFit Portsmouth are hosting their fifth annual Lumberjack 20 Competition on Saturday, September 20. This is a one-day, single event competition focused on community and fun. All participants will receive a t-shirt, drinks and paleo food. There will also be vendors on site and food trucks throughout the day. This is an awesome opportunity to meet some new CrossFitters from a different community.
After the Lumberjack 20 competition is complete, participants will be completing a scaled version of Pat’s WOD. Donations will be collected and all money raised will go to the PR for Pat fund. Pat has just started his chemo and radiation treatment, so he still needs all of the support he can get. We really appreciate CrossFit Portsmouth’s efforts in putting this event together and hope some members of our community can participate!
CrossFit Portsmouth has invited you all to register for either the competition WOD or Pat’s WOD, or both! They are also looking for judges and volunteers for the day. For more information or to sign up to get involved, please click here.

“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for a good score. One point is given for each rep.

    197 Rx. Woof. I liked FGB, so I thought this would be a similar tune… not so much. Stayed relatively consistent through the rounds and happy to get some decent C2Bs though 🙂
