This is our second annual event and is for athletes who are between the ages of 40 and 49. We feel this is a proud group of athletes who needed a competition to show that they are as dedicated and well balanced an athlete as any other age group. There is no scaling for this competition.

The date will be January 29th, 2012 and the location is to be determined.  We will be updating via this site and the NorCal 40’s Facebook page.

    I am curious as to why there are not many women signing up for this? This is the age group that needs to be seen by the CrossFit community! I have just joined a local box here in San Jose and love it, but may not be ready to register for this throwdown bummer! Maybe next year! Will your box post the workouts a few days or weeks prior to the competition?

    Thanks and come on ladies let’s get out there!!!

      Thanks for your great comment and question. Probably because we aren’t having a scaled division this has many women questioning whether or not this is something they can do. THEY ABSOLUTELY CAN!! Yes we want to have a solid competition showing the skills, fitness and athleticism of this age group but we also understand some of the hurdles we older athletes need to deal with. Hopefully letting people know that not completing all of the workouts won’t DNF them from the competition will help to alleviate some of the concerns out there.

        Hi. Thanks for your response and sorry you missed the registration. If I were you I would contact the event sponsors and find out if it’s still ok to sign up.

      Hi Arlene, We are having trouble getting masters at NorCal Crossfit also in the 40+ category. We dont have enough to form a team for sac throwdown either. Sigh…

      • Arlene Abastillas says:

        Hey Rob. Yeah I know what you mean I would love to go there at Norcal Crossfit should you guys ever had a 40+ masters event. The interest is there but the marketing and advertising is not. This has to be done through word of mouth to the entire CrossFit community. There’s a petition to get a Masters event in the Regionals.
