PIT Score + Mountain Run Score = Overall Score
The PIT is designed to be the great equalizer by leveling the playing field between power athletes and endurance runners to determine the best overall conditioned athlete.
1. “The PIT” will consist of separate stations per heat
2. Each station will consist of 4 strength elements:
• Thruster (75lb men; 45lb women)
• Box Jumps (20 inches tall both M/F)
• Kettlebell Swing (20kg men; 12kg women)
3. Per heat: competitors will fill the PIT per heat accompanied by professionally trained judges (1 per element)
4. At each station there will be a JUDGE to record the competitor’s total repetitions
• Note: This judge will remain with the competitor for all 4 stations.
5. Each strength element will be 1min 30sec in duration followed by a 30 sec rest and rotation period to the next element. This time will also allow judges to record the amount of reps completed by each individual.
