Hero throwdown Final 2016

Big thanks to all the athletes, volunteers and supporters. It was a fantastic day and the Final really lived upto the hype.
The different challenges the swim, run and Hero wod meant the athletes were constantly changing positions in the event.
The final workout was:

We had 7 Finalists competing in the Event, the qualifiers were so tough all the athletes were of a really high level:

Mike Powel, Nick Apps, Nick Stone (Crossfit 888), Ed Miller, Duncan Boltt, Oliver Beeney & Charlotte Ruff.


After the morning briefing for coaches and athletes the 7 competitors lined up on the start line with around 30 Spectators.

The race started with the 100m swim, So our life guard and park ranger Mick counted us down from his Paddleboard.


Every one one went for it on the first swim but GB triathlete Micheal Powel got out of the water 20m ahead of Duncan, who was 10m ahead of Nick Stone & Ed Miller. Next came Oli, Nick Apps & Charlotte.


Duncan closed the gap on Mike in the first run but decided breast stroke was a good option for the second swim and mike gained another 20m, Ed came out of the second swim still 10m behind Duncan and had gained a small gap on Nick Stone.


In the final swim Mike was 50m up from Duncan and appears to have the Final well won. Duncan was only just ahead of Ed in the last swim and Lost second place as he put on his shoes at the start of the run. Ed ran strong and Duncan entered the gym a second behind Ed.

Hero throwdown Final

Next Saturday the 17th @ 11:00am

We will be having a fantastic day in the Milton country park. Starting with the Hero throwdown final where 12 athletes will compete in a massive workout (Swim, Run Crossfit).

The workout will be tougher and longer than any Hero we have done for the qualifiers so be prepared.

Athletes are advised to where shoes they can swim in (light beach shoes are probably best) as you will need to run in-between swims.

Athletes must meet at 10am on the balcony overlooking the lake for a briefing.

Spectators can watch the athletes from the balcony overlooking the lake or anywhere on the course to help sure them on.

Photo’s. please take lots of the day so we can share them after.

Following this Mick and the team at Milton country park are letting us use the “wild place” where we can have a BBQ, Beers and a campfire. This will start approximately 1:30pm.
Please invite friends & family and anyone who just wants to come and watch is welcome. 

Check out the wild place below for the after party:



Who is organising the world throwdown?

We are Crossfit Stags and Does in Cambridge UK. Cambridge is a very international city and in our 4 years as a Crossfit gym we have trained athletes from all over the world visiting from other countries and gyms.
Our team & box also love traveling and visiting gyms around the world so would we are excited to build on this further.

We love Team workouts

Every Monday our box does a team workout. They strengthen our community and people push harder working for someone else.

Team wods by their nature are also nearly always a max effort interval WOD with one person working while the other rests & Interval training is one of the best way to improve your fitness levels.14249185_10154380316831271_807197697_n14256535_10154380328626271_1495325069_n

World throwdown Launch

The world throwdown is our latest event. 

We aim to bring athletes and gyms from around the world competing on 3 workouts to find the fittest gym & country.


About teams & how many? 

Unlimited team size for each gym, this means your whole gym can compete in the workout. Your top to scores will be submitted. This means you can mix and match teams for each event, which makes this event really inclusive for your members and also means you don’t have to spend time confirming teams and excluding members form your team.

In our first year we will be looking for just 3 teams from each country.
