5K Run

Post time to comments.


Cass meets "Fran"! 

Why run a 5K? "If you adopt the CrossFit philosophy, you would agree that covering considerable distances is a functional movement.  We evolved tracking animals, gathering food, migrating with the seasons, etc., so covering distances is part of our genetic make-up, just like the squat. "– CrossFit journal December 2007

If we ignored long distances, we would not be providing you with a broad general and inclusive fitness.

Check out CrossFit Tucson in the news.
