The FITNESS RAMPAGE isn’t just another adventure race. It’s about peer support, teamwork, focuses on all the components of fitness, and is a fun competition that is age graded. The FITNESS RAMPAGE was created to put all age groups and both men and women on an even playing field where completing a course based on a clock isn’t the only objective.
The way it works is like this. There are 4 event groups; TEAM, FITNESS, ENDURANCE, and STRENGTH. All team members participate in 12 total events chosen from these four groups. So you’re going to do 12 different events per person working with your teammates. Each of you earn a score in each event based on your performance, age, and gender. Your 4 scores are averaged into a team score and that score is ranked against other teams.
This makes things interesting. So if you’re a distance runner, you may kick some tail in the endurance group, but stink it up in the strength event group. If your a gym rat, you may be strong as a bull, but have the endurance of a firecracker. The FITNESS event group involves your personal fitness level, but the TEAM event group requires teamwork in order to complete each event.
How Do I Know If We Won?
Your team average is ranked against other teams. As well as your individual score rank. Remember, regardless of your age, the scores are scaled based on age and gender, so going against someone who is older or younger doesn’t necessarily put you at an advantage or disadvantage. Your individual score is combined with your teammates to create an average team score. This score is ranked against other teams. Depending on where your team places in each event you earn event points on a scale of 1-10. There are 8 places per event scored as follows:
Rank Points Awarded
Each event has a gender and age-based score. These scoring tables are available at the event, with an update on rankings occurring every hour or so. Remember, performing low in one area doesn’t necessarily put you out of contention to win. You still have your other 11 events!
What Do We Win?
There are 4 winning teams; 1 for each of the 3 divisions (men’s, women’s, coed) and the team with the best overall score. Winning teams receive pint glasses, get to host the winner’s trophy, and other swag.
