NorCal CrossFit is gearing up for the 2014 NorCal CrossFit Masters Competition and Expo. Registration will open between November 15 and December 1, 2013. This news comes from Alison Belger of TJs Gym CrossFit in California. Alison is author of the book CrossFit and the Power of Community. You can get that one on Amazon. Alison reports that registration will open some time between November 15 and December 1, 2013. They will be offering priority registration for CrossFit Masters athletes who competed in the 2013 NorCal Masters Competition. The competition will be held at the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond, CA. Richmond, CA is in the San Francisco area. The Craneway Pavillion itself is an awesome venue. Here it is, in most of its own words:
The Craneway Pavilion is a re-purposed 45,000 sq ft sustainably designed event, concert and production facility centrally located in one of the planet’s most iconic destinations. The Craneway Pavillion is as state-of-the-art as it is historic. The facility is an award-winning, architecturally significant Ford Assembly Plant building dating back to 1931, with an adjoining 20,000 square-foot open-air patio, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor spaces. Additional conference space with break out rooms are available. It is set on 25 waterfront acres, Craneway Pavilion delivers an awe-inspiring panorama of the Bay, the San Francisco skyline and the surrounding environs.
Suffer and sweat with other Crossfit Masters
Last year’s competition had separate division for athletes 40-44, 45 to 49, 50 – 54, 55-59 and a special class for 60 and over. Hopefully this year will see some more classes for those over 60. You really can’t celebrate older athletes enough. Bring your families and friends. There is plenty to do in the San Francisco area. Its well worth the trip. If you have college bound teens consider checking out some of California’s excellent Universities. Stanford University is just a short hop from San Francisco. I hear there are some other colleges around there too . . .

Last year’s event had three paleo-friendly food trucks parked outside. The Craneway also has healthy food for sale. I think bringing your own food is frowned upon. Parking is free and plentiful. Doors opened last year at 7:00 am and closed between 5:00pm and 6:00 pm. Keep an eye out for future announcements.
