Ten Thousand Hosts Another $5,000 Workout Just In Time For The Holidays
Back in October, men’s activewear company Ten Thousand debuted their first-ever one-workout online competition. With a prize purse of $5,000 for just one workout, the event drew hundreds of athletes competing for the top spot. At the end of thirteen grueling minutes, Lazaar Đukiç, the 5th place finisher at the 2019 Dubai Fitness Championship took home the top prize. Six weeks later, they’re back for more.
One big thing: “WORK” will make its return to gyms across the country as athletes fight once again for a $5,000 prize purse.
- The second round of competition begins on December 7th (registration is currently open) with the release of the workout.
- Athletes will have until December 16th to complete the workout and submit their scores to see how they stack up on the leaderboard.
- The event is free to register and open to any and all skill levels.
- The last event saw 526 athletes register for the online competition and they hope to bring in even more athletes this round to compete for the $5,000 purse.
Why it matters: Nearly a year has passed since the start of this pandemic and in the last nine months, the functional fitness community has continued to find more and more ways to continue to be connected despite the distance that separates them. As we enter what would usually be a busy competition season filled with Sanctionals and local throwdowns, many event organizers have found ways to keep the community together online through events like this and other events, like the Filthy 150 Twelve Days of Filthy.
