UK City League Week 2: Scotland & The North
The start of our second week off has gone off with a bang with 3 brilliant classes at Forest Flow Fitness.
We had teams taking it on all evening; the coaches jumped in, newbies to the gym joined the fun and it was great to see so many Battle Cancer patches placed proudly on laces. Lots of laughs, lots of Cotton Eyed Joe, lots of friendly competition and money being raised!
All COVID measures are of course being taken, hence why we have limited slots for the challenges, no judges, social distancing organised and obviously thorough cleaning between workouts!
Next, we hit the lakes in style and landed at District L Fitness. We took over their evening classes and danced around to Usher while they put in a mega shift during the challenge. We just love the smiles and laughs while you’re all sweating for the person you’re thinking about.
We always ask in the classes who has been affected by cancer and 9/10, if not all put their hand up. This is not 1/2. This is why we’re on the road!
On day 11 we were in the gorgeous York to challenge the mighty Vikings at CrossFit Jorvik.
What a bunch they have there! All threw themselves into it and their gym has raised SO MUCH money! We couldn’t believe the efforts - hundreds of cupcakes were made for donations, plus teams from CrossFit Scarborough made the trip over to get involved in the challenge.
We then ventured across the Scottish border and beyond to the beautiful Sweatbox Dundee to see our good friend Sheli, Sam and meet their community there. The incredibly kind Kris from Porsche Perth also got involved and is giving out a ridiculous prize of WINNING A PORSCHE FOR THE WEEKEND! Whaattt!
Day 13 saw us visit some of the Go Train East Rocks OGs who have come year on year to our annual Manchester events. We kicked off our morning with bagpipes and the energy from each and every team carried on all the feels throughout the day. We endured all the mud, sideways rain, and burpees in puddles.
We had some incredible teams who had an adapted workout to fit them, and they all worked so hard! Cancer doesn’t discriminate so neither do we.
A huge thank you to the coaches who managed to get so many teams together with just 4 days notice at CrossFit Dauntless! What an epic gym and community. THANK YOU!
We had to change our route due to restrictions so a couple of last-minute calls have been made and we have secured another week in gyms in England rather than crossing over to Northern Ireland. We are trying our hardest to keep the challenge going, and so far YOU have all raised thousands for cancer charities.
