Another year has gone by, and it's time once again for an NYC affiliate throwdown: the 2014 Subway Series! All NYC affiliates are invited to participate--the affiliate with the best overall score at the end of four events wins the Subway Series Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year!
We're mixing things up a little this year, and making this a true team competition! Each box will field one 4-person competition team, and any number of additional 3-person open teams.
There will be TWO winners this year -- a competition series winner, and an open series winner. Two trophies are up for grabs!
Prior to the beginning of the series, each box must choose between 4 and 8 athletes to place on their competition roster. Each week, 4 of these athletes (2 men, 2 women) will compete in the competitive division. Athletes declared to be on the competition roster may not compete on open teams in weeks they are not competing on the competition team.
Place points will be awarded based on finish each week. The ultimate competition series winner will be the box with the least points after all 4 events have been completed. In the event of a tie, a 5th tie-breaking event will be held.
Each open team is comprised of 3 athletes, including at least one female athlete. Open teams may register for any combination of events (they do not have to participate in all events, and athletes may participate on different open teams for different events.)
Each week, the top-finishing open team from each box will contribute their place points to the overall score for that box. The ultimate open series winner will be the box with the least points after all 4 events have been completed. In the event of a tie, a 5th tie-breaking event will be held.
There will be no scaling options available for either division. However the open division workouts will be accessible to a relatively novice athlete. Minimum requirements will be released prior to each event.
All open teams MUST register for each individual event in advance via EventBrite in order to participate. Each event will be capped at 50 total teams, so we strongly advise you to register early!
