Rules: * A runner’s time will be based on how many times he/she can bench press the weight for their gender and age category. * There are four lifting divisions * Runners not competing for prize money, may scale their weight

Those participating in the 5k only will not be competing in the above divisions.
20 seconds per rep will be deducted from the competitor’s final 5k time for the Pump and Run Division. The maximum deduction is 15 minutes (or 45 total reps)
Lift starts with the bar in the extended position. Feet must remain in contact with the floor throughout the lift (no hooking bench support with feet/legs). Bar must touch the chest and be fully extended on each press – stopping terminates the lift. No bouncing bar off chest. Shoulder and rear must stay in contact with the bench during lifts. If necessary, plates may be placed under lifters’ feet. No baggy clothing, belts, wraps or lifting suits. Decisions of our judges are final.
Participants will begin by completing their max rep bench press. Registration will begin at 11:30am and Bench Press will begin at 12pm. Race will commence after all racers have completed their lift (approximately 1:00 pm)
The event will take place rain or shine. If the forecast, calls for rain, then the lifting portion will take place at Crossfit Hoboken at 38 Jackson Street Hoboken, NJ 07030.
This past weekend we witnessed the best run event I’ve ever attended outside of the Crossfit Regionals/Games. Unlike the regionals, the competition isn’t riddled with exceptional Crossfit athletes. In fact, many of the competitors were there doing CrossFit for the first time. Everyone was there just enjoying themselves and the event. There are vendors there giving out free samples and spectator games set up. Our coach Rocky won the overall event and Dave finished close behind him. Every Crossfit athlete in our gym is capable of attending this competition. If you think competing is fun, and are looking for a great way to spend a Saturday, then I would encourage you to sign up for this event.

Everyone has been doing an awesome job during the 2013 CrossFit Games Open! A lot of you really stepped up to help be apart of the CrossFit Hoboken team… and we still have more workouts to go! You cheered people on, you worked your ass off every Thursday/Sunday on the Open WODs, and we’ve really come together as a team. The comaraderie, the support and encouragement, and the FUN and competitive intensity in the air is what CrossFit is all about!
Let’s get the whole team together (that means ALL CrossFit Hoboken members!) to celebrate the end of the open and the beginning of the next step!
