// BALLOT OPEN - WINTER TRIALS 2020 // Sign up via link in bio Due to demand, entry into The Rainhill Trials (Winter 2020) will be via draw from a ballot. Click the link above to enter your details for the chance to gain a place to compete. The ballot will close on SUNDAY 27TH OCTOBER, with all entries contacted the following week either giving details of how to book your place, or that unfortunately you weren't successful this time. To allow more athletes the chance to experience the competition floor, Rainhill Trials events in 2020 will take place over 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) - with one category of athlete competing each day. This will allow us to offer spaces to 720 athletes in total rather than the 480 previously, so we hope that the number of disappointed entries will drop! . . #therainhilltrials #fit#fitnessng #crossfit #ukcrossfit #competition #athlete #workout #wod #throwdown #trainmanchester #fitness #fitfam #functionalfitness #gym #gymlife #fitnessevent #trainhard #trainhealthy

Due to the demand for spaces at The Rainhill Trials events, entry is via draw from a ballot.The ballot for entry into the Rainhill Winter Trials 2020 will open next MONDAY 14TH OCTOBER and stay open for two weeks. Successful entries will then be given details of how to claim their spot the following week. In 2020, the Rainhill Trials events will be held over three days (Friday to Sunday) with athletes competing on one of the three days. The successful 720 athletes from the ballot will be placed into one of three categories following completion of a series of seeding workouts/movements; Rocket, Kennedy and Wood.This will mean that you are competing with people of a similar relative ability to yourself, although you will find that people in your category may be better at certain skills/movements they will be worse at others. Workouts over the weekend will be scaled according to the average ability of people within the group If you want to avoid the ballot and guarantee a spot you can do so by volunteering at our November event as part of the judging or equipment team with just a few spots left on each (http://tinyurl.com/RainhillTrialsVolunteerSept19)

We have a few spaces remaining on both our judging team and equipment crew at the upcoming Same Sex Pairs event on November 9th/10th at SportCity in Manchester. Volunteering will get you a GUARANTEED SPOT at our first event of 2020 on March 6th-8th - avoiding the ballot. There are also lots of other great perks that come with volunteering including discounts and offers from our great vendors and sponsors. http://tinyurl.com/RainhillTrialsVolunteerSept19
