1. Beard Beauty Pageant: The victorious team from the Ladies’-Only Competition will sit on the Judges’ Panel to determine who has the grandest beard at CrossFit Austin. Beards will be judged on a scale of 1-10 in 4 categories:

  • Manliness: Does your beard demand respect? Or should we get a nice little sundress?
  • Girth: Can you keep a small village warm or do you have apache tribe on your face?
  • Presentation: Does your beard fit your face? Your personality? Is it creative?
  • Back Story: The epic tale behind your furry face…

2. Shave and Weigh: Let the scales tip in your favor! The beard that weighs the most at weigh-in / shave-off will be the heavyweight champ!

Beer and Mimosa Mile:
Easy….. Drink a beer or a mimosa, run a lap around the building. Repeat 4 times.
