How to sign-up?
Click here to reserve a spot in a heat for Saturday’s workout. Simply click the “Sign-up Now” button for your desired time slot, and follow the on-screen instructions.  As the heats fill-up, we will add more time slots to the schedule.

How much does it cost?
There is a $20 drop-in fee for visiting athletes.

How will the morning run?
We will run every hour like so: 
:00 – :20, athlete warm-up
:20 – :30, Heat 1
:30 – :40, Heat 2
:40 – :50, Heat 3
:50 – :00, Heat 4

Please plan to come warm-up for your time slot in the :20 minute warm-up period at the start of each hour!

Who can participate in the workout? 
EVERYONE!  In other words, even if you did not sign-up for the CrossFit Open, you should still come take part in the fun. We hope that all Roots athletes will take this opportunity to come and do the workout just as you would on any Saturday. We will scale as needed. AND all athletes that participate in the workout will be entered to win a prize from the Lululemon Boulder store!

What’s going on afterward?
The Roots Community Day!

What is Community Day, you ask?

Community Day is about celebrating CrossFit and the great community of athletes we get to workout with on a daily basis. Bring the family, bring a lawn chair, come watch some of the heats, participate in the workout, and stick around for some mingling and food! We’ll start-up the grill at 11:00am and host a barbecue and social event. We’ll have lots of burgers, compliments of Yampa Valley BeefBoo Bars, and Silk Pure Unsweetened Almond Milk from Whitewave Foods.  Our favorite coffee shop in town, The Cup, will provide coffee throughout the day.  Roots athlete, chiropractor Dr. Jason Orowitz, will be there with his adjustment table to talk shop and give athletes a once over. We’ll also host a “Show a Friend” workout where you can take a non-CrossFitting friend through a workout.  We’ll host that around 12:00pm after the heats are completed.  AND the CrossFit Headquarters media team will be on-site to film the action and get everyone’s reaction to workout 3!

Roots would love your help.
If you are interested in volunteering, judging, or helping out, please email Stefanie.  Roots Crew! – we’re in search of folks to bring fixings for the Yampa Burgers – we’re going to create a Junk Burger Bar!  If you’re interested in pitching in some toppings, please click here to list your name, and thank you!
If you have any questions, please post to comments so that everyone may benefit from the answer.

Roots hopes to see you there!

    Hello Ververs, yep that is me enjoying my moment of celebrity, and “battling” is certainly the word for what I was experiencing in that photo! I have really enjoyed the brief time I have had with you and everyone I have met is so nice! Looking forward to meeting everyone. I really appreciate the time and effort that Zac, Cherie and Matt have put into making this Sectional WOD process work. Great job guys!
