CrossFit Brand X in Ramona will host “The Gauntlet,” a teen competition on Oct. 16 that will benefit the Infant Swim Resource program. The event is open to the public and booth space is available for vendors.
According to Debbie Rakos with CrossFit Brand X, 40 teams from all over the United States will be competing in three levels: varsity, junior varsity and novice. High school students, ages 14 to 18, will each do four different workouts.
To compete, teen athletes must pre-register and pay a $25 participant fee that will go toward Infant Swim Resource (ISR), a provider of survival swimming lessons for infants and toddlers worldwide.
ISR teaches child survival skills in conjunction with basic swimming lessons to give children the competence required to safely enjoy the water.
The Gauntlet is free for spectators.
Vendors can rent booth space for $100. The emphasis for the vendors will be on health and fitness, Rakos said. Vendors will include Ramona Family Naturals, food booths and an apparel company with workout clothes.
Opportunity drawing tickets will be available for purchase with gift baskets given away as prizes.
The event is sponsored by Reebok and will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at CrossFit Brand X, 432 Maple St.
