Southern rivals | THE SQUADS



2024 event coming soon! 

Join us on TBC for a mixed teams of 6 (3 male, 3 female) competition by CrossFit Southampton. There’s no RX or scaled, the event caters for all abilities with just a handful of minimum ability requirements per team.

This time we’re leaving the box and heading to a huge 90-Acre site on the South Coast. Located just off the M27 between Hedge End and Botley in Southampton, Fairthorne Manor will be the host site of The SQUADS 2023.


Accessible to all abilities, this flagship mixed teams event will feature 4 functional workouts; 3 using kit you’re familiar with whilst the other will be a paddleboard relay agility event (for 2 team members) running alongside a woodland trail run for the rest of the team. The final 3 teams on each day will win some huge cash prizes and stash from our event partners!


Refreshments including top quality speciality coffee from our in-house coffee shop ‘Coffee Box’, energy drinks and snacks will be available on the day as well as breakfast and lunch from our catering partner.


Workout demos and movement standards will be announced online in the weeks leading up to the competition.


Our free Stretch Den sessions will be running all day to keep you mobile, as well as on-site sports massage provided by one of the biggest names in the industry.


We’ll be revealing all of our sponsors and event partners over the coming weeks!


Entry is £60 per person and can be purchased using the link below – places are very limited! No need to give your team names just yet, we’ll be in touch nearer the time.

If you’re keen to reserve your team spot before having a full team you can just tick ‘add team members later’.


Minimum standards/ability

We’re regularly praised for our event accessibility whilst still ensuring a challenging and fun day. There’s no RX or scaled with this competition, we just ask that as a guide, any 2 of your 6 team members can do the following:

  • TTB
  • Pull Ups
  • Double Unders
  • Are confident on water
  • Deadlift 100kg/70kg
  • GTOH – 70kg/45kg

Not all team members need to be able to do these, for example if 2 team members can do pull ups but cannot GTOH 70/45KG, but 2 others can, this is fine.

These are an example of the types of movements and weights you’d need to be able to perform, not a guarantee they will all appear!


If you have questions regarding any of the event details, get in touch!


This is something different | This is functional fitness | This is The Squads.
