Finish Line

Event Description

Athletes will begin standing on their start mat. On the call of “3, 2, 1, GO!”, they will advance to their ski erg and begin accumulating calories. Once the athlete has completed the required calories on the ski erg, they will begin their Handstand walks. Once the athlete has travelled the required distance on the Handstand walk, they will complete their shuttle runs, then head back to the ski erg. Athletes will repeat this cycle for a total of four rounds. The event is complete when the athlete crosses the finish line or they reach the end of the time cap. The event score is the total time to complete the event or the time cap plus completed repetitions. Each completed 10-foot section on the handstand walk will count for one repetition.
