IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE NOMINATE YOUR CROSSFIT TEAM CAPTAIN WHO WE WILL GIVE A FREE BIB IN HIS/HER CHOICE OF OUR 3 EVENTS – MARATHON, HALF OR 5K.

We are fast approaching Aspen Valley Marathon 2017 which takes place on Saturday 15th July 2017and we would like to invite you to participate in our 4th Annual exclusive to Crossfit Boxes competition!
After extensive consultation with our race committee and several of the local CrossFit boxes, we have come up with a new scoring system which we believe is fairer and will encourage participation by your members.
If you wish to participate, please nominate your CrossFit Team Captain who we will give a free bib in his/her choice of our 3 events - Marathon, Half or 5K. You can do this by email or by calling Sean Solon, Race Director AVM 2017 at (970) 319 3579. We will then set up your Crossfit Team on www.active.com and send you the direct link. Each Crossfit will be given a unique code which their members can use to avail of a 15% discount in any of our races and will add them to your team. We require at least 5 members for a team (including your team captain) but the more athletes you enter, the better chance your gym will have of taking home our perpetual trophy in 2016.
The scoring system will be as follows: We award 15, 30 & 60 points to each finisher in the 5k, Half and marathon respectively AND we then take the total number of athletes in each race and award additional points to each finisher based to each on their placing in that race. Example: If there are 500 athletes in the marathon, then the winner would get 500 points and the last finisher would get 1 point. The club with the most cumulative points across all the 3 events wins the trophy and of course, the more athletes a club enters, the better chance they have of topping the points list. The advantage of this system is that every athlete who competes for their Crossfit will gain points towards their gym's total score (rather than just awarding points race winners).
As we said, please appoint your captain ASAP so we can set your team up on active and get your members the discount code. Once you nominate your captain, we will get you a set of rules, posters for your gym, etc. Aspen Valley Marathon is the most beautiful Boston Qualifier and is one of the top 50 fastest courses in North America! We hope to see you there!
