One Workout, $5,000 On the Line; Ten Thousand Holds Online Competition
Ten Thousand, a New York-based men’s activewear company, and WillyB CrossFit in New York City have partnered up to hold an online event called WORK with a winning prize purse of $5,000 on the line. CrossFitters of all skill levels will go head-to-head in the virtual workout, with payouts and prize packages for the top ten finishers.
One big thing: WORK will debut on Sunday, October 25 with registration on the Ten Thousand website. The virtual contest will feature just one workout which will be announced on November 1 and distributed to all registered participants. Those athletes will then have six days to submit a video of themselves completing the workout. The athlete with the best score will win the $5,000 purse from Ten Thousand.
- There is no fee to enter the contest, no qualifiers or age restrictions. All participants will be put in one division.
- There will also be chances for affiliates to win gear and equipment courtesy of Ten Thousand.
- Ten Thousand is hoping to throw the WORK contest every six weeks to give athletes a chance to win money and prizes while they train.
- “We are hoping to give the community something to be excited about coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jared Stein, Director of Special Projects for Ten Thousand. “Between the end of the (CrossFit) Games and the Open, we want to rally everyone together.”
