Unbroken Series presents the 4th Annual Battle of Mint Hill 2018

Saturday May 26th as part of the  Mint Hill Madness Festival 

Start time: TBD

Location: Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park

8850 Fairview Road, Mint Hill, NC 28227


This will be a partner event, with the following divisions:

Novice: All-Male and All-Female

Intermediate: All-Male, All-Female, and Co-Ed

Rx: All-Male, All-Female, Co-Ed

Division guidelines to help you find the right one for you:

Novice: This division is for athletes who are newer to competitions. The weights and movements will still be challenging for each individual, but nothing that is unattainable.

Intermediate: This division is for those in between newbies and Rx athletes. If you have competed in Novice or Scaled divisions before and feel ready for more of a challenge, this is the division for you.

Rx: This division is for those comfortable lifting heavy weights, more complicated movements, including some gymnastics. For example, the Rx athlete would be able to do most of the CrossFit "Girls" workouts as prescribed.


This year's event will include 3 WODS for everyone, plus a Final WOD for the top teams in each division.

The WODs will be posted here, as well as on social media, the week of the competition. Any questions before then can be sent here.
