This event begins with all six teammates on the starting mat. At the sound of the beep, the first male/female pair will move to their Assault AirRunners for a 500-meter run. Each athlete, upon completing the run, may advance to the wall to perform 24 strict handstand push-ups. They will then advance to the dumbbell and complete 24 alternating snatches, advancing after every 6 reps. After their last snatch, they will advance to the chess piece and place their hand on top.
To advance from one exercise to the next, an athlete must complete the required number of reps at each station. There is NO requirement that an athlete wait for their teammate. However, both athletes must have a hand on the chess piece before the next male/female pair can enter and begin running. Once the second pair starts their run, the first pair will advance the chess piece past the red line and then move to the finish mat.
The second and third pairs will advance through the exercises in the same fashion as the first. However, the second pair will perform 28 reps each of the handstand push-ups and dumbbell snatches, advancing every 7 reps, and the third pair will each complete 32 reps of each exercise, advancing every 8 reps. Once both athletes in the third pair have completed their work and touched the chess piece, they will move to the finish mat.
The team's score is its total time to complete the event.
There is no minimum work requirement for this event.

Scoring at the Regionals will be the same as at the Games. Every event will be worth up to 100 points, and teams earn points based on their finish (see chart). At the end of the weekend, the team with the most points is the winner. Teams that tie receive the same number of points. If a team fails to complete an event within the time cap (for timed events), its score will be capped and it will receive a 1-second penalty for each rep not completed.
Minimum Work Requirement
Some events will have a minimum work requirement. For those events, if a team fails to meet the minimum work requirement, it will not be eligible to move on to the next event. Teams must continue to work to complete all the repetitions until the time cap expires.
1 of 5The run will take place on an Assault AirRunner. The treadmill display will count down from 500 meters, and the athlete must remain on the machine until the display reads zero. Athletes may not run with their hands on the rails.2 of 5This handstand push-up begins at the top of a handstand with the arms fully locked out, the heels on the wall, and the hips open with the body in line with the arms. The hands must be placed within the clearly marked area. The marked area will be a 36-by-24-inch box, and the palm of the hand must be placed within the clearly marked area (fingers may extend outside of the box).3 of 5At the bottom of each rep, the athlete's head must touch the mat. At the top of each rep, the athlete must return to a fully locked out position, with the heels on the wall and the feet within the width of the marked area. Kipping is not allowed. The athlete's hips may not touch the wall, and their legs must remain straight. Athletes may not wear any material over the heels of their shoes.4 of 5The dumbbell snatch starts with the dumbbell on the ground and finishes with the dumbbell directly overhead. At the bottom of the movement, BOTH heads of the dumbbell must touch the ground. The dumbbell must be lifted overhead in one motion. Touch-and-go is permitted. Bouncing the dumbbell is not allowed. Athletes must alternate arms after each repetition and may not alternate until a successful rep is achieved. The dumbbell may not be dropped until after it is lowered to below the waist. The non-lifting hand and arm may not be in contact with any part of the body during the repetition.5 of 5At the top, the arms, hips and knees must be fully locked out with the dumbbell clearly over the middle of the athlete’s body when viewed from profile. Once the athlete has reached lockout, the repetition will count. The athlete may choose to do a split-style snatch. However, both feet must return and be in line under the athlete’s body while the dumbbell is locked out overhead for the repetition to count.
