We are one week away from the Toro Loco Challenge. We will all be starting the race at 9:00am on Saturday, September 29th. To show team cohesion we will all be wearing a CrossFit Yuma shirt and the socks that we ordered. The socks were an optional item for fun, but I would like to see us all wearing our CrossFit Yuma shirts! If you do not have one, please see Coach Joey or Coach Nichole about getting one. Feel free to wear any goofy, fun or outrage items to have fun during the race.Plan on meeting at the event 30 to 45 minutes before our heat time. Below is some additional information provided by the event organizers.
IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS FOR POST RACE FUN, PLEASE POST IT TO THE COMMENTS SECTION.
Before you leave the house:
Before you leave the house: A photo ID, cash, a towel, a water bottle, anything you’ll need for kids and dogs (pet waste bags), sunscreen, a change of clothes, YOUR SIGNED WAIVER (Click to view and print) and a good attitude.
Plan on showing up at least 30 minutes before your wave. You’ll park as directed and head to the registration tent. You’ll show us your photo ID and give us a copy of your signed waiver (Click to view and print). We’ll get you checked in and give you a racing bib. You can take your stuff back to your car or there will be a bag check for $5 where proceeds will go to a non-profit. Head over to the starting line when your wave is called.
The Raging Bull folks have a longer course with much more difficult obstacles, so they’ll be in front. The Leisurely Longhorns will be in back. Once the wave starts, you’ll head out onto your respective course. They will be well-marked…orange for the Raging Bulls and green for the Leisurely Longhorns. If you get to an obstacle that you don’t feel comfortable with, skip it. We’ll have water available at various spots on the course. Stay hydrated! You do not need to know how to swim, but your wallowing skills should be well honed. We have plenty of folks on the course keeping an eye on things. They’re the ones with huge grins, Toro Loco Challenge shirts, and radios. Feel free to grab one of them if you have any kind of problem or concern. Have a good time!
Post Race and Festival:
After you finish and get cleaned up, then throw on your Toro Loco Challenge t-shirt. Drink plenty of water and have a snack, enjoy the food and music, laugh and play with the hounds (maybe pick up a new one at the Humane Society Adoption Area). Food and beverages will be for sale but remember don’t drink and drive and have a good time!
