2014 Southie Showdown

Click here to Register!!

On November 8th and 9th CrossFit Southie will be hosting the Southie Showdown; an annual individual competition. Located in what was once considered the “toughest” area of Boston, CrossFit Southie occupies 15,000 square feet of industrial warehouse space that was originally cannon factories in the late 1800s. The buildings have been restored since, but they still carry a thick industrial feel. CrossFit Southie is located close to Copley Square, the Boston Seaport, and Downtown Boston. There are plenty of places to stay and lots to see if you decide to make a trip out of the event.

The two-day competition is designed for competitors new to CrossFit, fire-breathers, and everyone in between. It is a last chance to compete hard in the crisp fall air before the winter rolls in. There will be 5 events over the two days for everyone, and then a final event for the top RX competitors.
There is parking on site, but it does run out fast. Please carpool if possible. The facility is also only a 5 minute walk from the redline.

In the past several years the event has sold out in less than 48 hours. For that reason, we have a NO REFUND policy. If you can no longer participate please send an email to [email protected] If there are wait-listed participants in your same division, an exchange may occur, and in that instance you will be refunded for your forfeited spot. No exchanges will be made after October 31st.

If you are a sponsor and are interested in becoming involved with our event, please contact [email protected]

    IS there any age brackets an/or scaling for age divisions. eg 60+? or is this strictly open division?
