Check out our calendar of events below!
Teams of 10 will compete versus one another using a Concept 2 rowing machine to row the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles / 42,195 meters) in the shortest amount of time. Teams of 10 can be a mix of genders, ages, and skill levels and the rowing can split up in any way the team would like.
NEW... After every 5000m completed, each team will be required to perform a task. Eight tasks TBD.
Awards will be given to the teams with the fastest times.
Additionally, each team can enter 1 individual to compete in a 500 meter sprint event and 1 individual to compete in a 2,000 meter distance event. Awards will be given for the fastest times in these events as well.
This is the 2nd annual event, the first of its kind in Northwest Arkansas, and is a collaboration between CrossFit Bentonville and CrossFit Argonaut. Event proceeds will go to organizations like Down Syndrome Connection of Northwest Arkansas and Miracle League NWA which provide programs and services to individuals with special needs in our local area.
The concept is simple - participants, in team of 10, compete together by rowing a marathon as a relay team. But the Firebreather Regatta will be so much more than that! This is an opportunity to come together as a group to compete in a unique event that will raise funds for individuals in our area that face extra challenges everyday due to their special cognitive and/or physical needs.
The registration fee for this event is $50 per participant, $500 per team of 10. The fee will cover an event t-shirt, refreshments, and lunch in addition to the opportunity to compete.
