The Spartan Group X Catamount Games, described on the event registration page as an event/workout ran by three coaches with military, SGX, CrossFit™, triathlon, and extreme endurance race backgrounds. In true fashion of an event that embodies both mental and physical challenges, very little information was provided up front, with the exception of what you should physically expect and a packing list. We were provided the location of Frozen Head State Part in TN and to expect WODs (CrossFit workout of the day), and a general time frame of 12 hours of work. Rucks had to weigh 25 lbs for women and 35 lbs for men, including water. Tents and sleeping bags were on the list, which gave some indication of what was in store. We would work as a team as we hiked, however WODs were scored and one had the opportunity to be the top male and top female of the event. The event only allowed 15 participants.
The next event is already in the works according to Crossfit Xiphos and is being setup for an April/May timeframe.
