On Saturday, Oct. 26, Crossfit BTH in Preston was already packed with athletes. Day two of the first-annual Monster Bash was set to start and nerves were high.
With more than 110 athletes having traveled from Elko, Nev., Meridian, the Salt Lake Area, as well as the local Cache Valley, the day looked to be a promising combination of adrenaline, strength and stink.
The Monster Bash Competition consisted of a timed obstacle course during which athletes were required to climb a rope, pull a tire, swing across monkey bars, and balance walk/run across a telephone pole.
Add to that the walls that had to be climbed and the army crawls and anyone should be forming a pretty clear picture.
The athletes competed individually or with teams in several events. Scores were tallied and winners chosen in different categories. Since Crossfit is a sport that anyone can do, the competition included many different age and fitness levels. The youngest competitor was 14, with ages ranging up to the oldest at 58.
