Lincoln Divisions

This year we are offering two ways to compete, either as an individual or as part of a same-gendered team.

RX Team Athletes

RX Female Team Reg. RX Male Team Reg.
  • able to perform gymnastic movements consistently seen in general whiteboard programming
  • able to perform most barbell movements as prescribed in CF "girl" workouts
  • exposure to many elements/movement typically found in CF style training.

These athletes would likely be able to participate in the CF open as prescribed, but not likely finish all workouts under the time cap.

$180* / person

Competitive Female Reg. Competitive Male Reg.
  • able to perform, but not necessarily proficient with all gymnastic movements

Volunteer

It takes a lot of committed volunteers to pull off an event like this!

We have multiple options for volunteering:

Judging - Be close to the action and willing to evaluate athletes' movement quality and reps (training provided).
Equipment - ensuring the appropriate equipment is clean, safe and present on the floor throughout the competition.
Athlete Services
- making sure athletes are cared for and where they are supposed to be throughout the weekend.
Set up and tear down - Set up will happen mostly on Thursday evening/all day Friday and tear down takes place Sunday late afternoon. Many hand makes light work!

What you can expect in volunteering...

  • Being a part of a great experience.
  • Watching some incredible athletes.
  • Participating in a fun community event.
  • Free T-shirt.
  • Lunch and drinks on Saturday and Sunday.

In our first two years our volunteers have been one of the best parts of the weekend and we expect that same trend to continue!

Origin

In 1901, delegates from Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, banded together seeking to form a new state in the union, one they would call Lincoln. The proposal was unsuccessful, yet surfaced again in the 1920’s, this time to include Western Montana with the hopes the larger area might be more convincing. Likeminded people were hoping their voices would be better represented in their new state. Although the idea did not gain the traction necessary, it has since surfaced multiple times, each with the goal of coming together to better represent the strengths of this geographical area.

There are similarities to this idea in the Fitness community. Many significant competitions are held yearly in the I-5 corridor, but what about the athletes that live and train in the geographical boundaries of the proposed northern state of Lincoln? Our area is home to many incredible athletes and yet there are not many individual competitions that our area hosts where elite, competitive, and RX athletes can come together to compete against and push one another towards betterment.

The Lincoln

The Lincoln Fitness competition will have multiple different divisions in 2022:
Elite and Competitive individuals
Competitive and RX same gender teams.

Converging in Spokane, Washington (what was the proposed capitol of Lincoln) at the county fairgrounds on November 5th and 6th, this two day competition will use CrossFit Open/Regional style programming to find the best male and female athletes from the region.

In its 3rd year, The Lincoln will allocate 50% of all registration fees (up to $6,000!) toward the podium cash prizes. It's our belief that those competing in regional events should have an opportunity to win more than a bag of coupons and supplements.

We look forward to an incredible event showcasing the best athletes in the “State of Lincoln”.
