What – Team competition (teams of 2 – male-male, female-female), with only one skill division. This will be a fun competition aimed towards people who are new to CrossFit and/or competition. Your level of skill should be at the beginner/intermediate level. There will be a mix of events designed to test different aspects of fitness.
Who is this for? This is a great first time competition for newer CrossFit athletes who are curious to test the competition waters, and for athletes who are still developing their skills. (Basically, if you have a 3 minute Fran time and a 2.5X body weight back squat… then this competition is not for you.) We ask that all athletes be familiar with all basic CrossFit movements, as well as Olympic Lifts. It would be to your advantage if one of your partners has some gymnastics skills, such as pull-ups and toes to bar, but it is not required. There will be scaled movements available for teams who do not have these movements, however you will be scored lower than teams who can complete it RX. There will be no high skill gymnastics in this competition. Please note that there is only one skill division in this competition.

At the top of each air squat they will high five with hands above head. One partner will then move to the rower and complete 500m. Once complete, they will get out of the rower and high five again.

2018 Harvest Games-Presented by CrossFit Outland
Come out and enjoy a mixed partner CrossFit competition at the Harvest Festival in Winkler, Manitoba! Mixed teams will test their fitness across broad time and modal domains with 3 events and a floater WOD throughout the day. All WODs are partner workouts where athletes can divide up the work any way they want. Workouts will include many of the well known CrossFit movements, but will also include a few movements that will challenge all athletes. Athletes should bring all of their usual gear, including a swimsuit!
RX: RX teams have at least 1 athlete who is a seasoned athlete, proficient in all CrossFit movements. 1 athlete should be able to snatch 185# and clean and jerk 225# comfortably. This division is for athletes who RX CrossFit workouts regularly.
Intermediate: Intermediate teams have athletes who do some workouts RX’d. These can be seasoned or newer athletes, but may be missing those higher level movements (MU and heavier lifts). These athletes can lift moderate weights and may be proficient in pull-ups, DU's, etc. These athletes are beyond scaled but not quite an RX athlete yet.
Scaled: Scaled athletes are either new to CrossFit, or are here to have fun and maybe want to try their hand at a competition that will challenge but not kill them. Athletes should be familiar with all the standard CrossFit movements including Olympic Weightlifting.
