Winter Challenge: We Need A Team!

It’s time again for CrossFit Taranis to host their yearly Winter Challenge

Are YOU training to compete this year?  Why not get your feet wet with the CrossFit Taranis Winter Challenge!

Registration opens for this great event on Sept 12th.  We want to put in an Affiliate Team again this year, and we need to have the names of the participants upon registration.

We are allowed a minimum of 2 guys/ 2 girls, and a max  of 3 guys/3 girls.  However, only 2 of each will compete in the end.  Please email Deanna at if you want to be on the team, as Deanna will be doing the registering.

If there are more than 6 people interested in competing on a Zone Team, we will come up with a fair way to choose who makes the cut.

Think about it, and get back to Coach Dee A.S.A.P. if you want in!
