Aged to Perfection Masters Competition – A Talon Throwndown Series Event
The Masters “Aged to Perfection” will be held on Saturday, November 18th, 2017.
Thank you to all of you who participated in our survey. The results are in and it will be a TEAM competition this year!
Please contact Tara if you are interested in becoming a sponsor for this event. (See contact form below).
All athletes must be 35 years old or older by the day of the competition. Teams will be comprised of 2 athletes, and the division will be determined by adding the ages of the two athletes together. We will have a male/male division as well as a female/female division in the following age categories:
70-79 total age
80-89 total age
90-99 total age
100+ total age
There is no Rx or Scaled divisions in this competition, but rather your “scaling” is that you are grouped into divisions by your combined age, competing against people similar in age. We will run very similar to CrossFit standards in regards to weights, meaning you won’t see much actual scaling unless you are in the 100+ division. With that being said, we want everyone to be able to compete, so we will have scalings options available in each WOD should you not be able to perform a movement as prescribed in the workout. You will basically have “options” for some workouts or portions of the workout which will allow you to complete the WOD, but adjust your score so you are ranked appropriately. Example: Pull-ups would have a scaling option of using a band to assist you. Toes to bar would have a knee raise scaling option. WODs with barbells would have a lighter option, as well as if we throw a heavy kettlebell in there, we will allow a lighter one as a scaling option.
We want this to be inclusive for our Masters athletes, but we do not want to water it down for those Masters athletes who can indeed do all the weights and movements just like the younger athletes…just maybe not as fast. Therefore, we will program a tough event to push those top athletes, but will provide options so our athletes that need scaling can participate safely as well. (Lord knows we don’t need anyone getting injured, as it takes us WAY TOO long to heal at our age!) This truly is a competition for all! (Well…if you are 35 or older.)
Event schedule will be posted with heats closer to the event.

Please be patient when hitting “submit”…the link to paypal is apparently a masters athlete too, and needs a little extra time to get it done.
