the event that will make you believe in yourself
THE PYRAMIDX EVENT
6 Events from the Pharaoh's to test your Physical, Mental Strength and Endurance. 5 of the events stay the same for our Calendar Season. This means you can train for all 5 of our events throughout the season and try better your times. Only in the new Season will we change certain aspect's of the workout - however the core idea will stay exactly the same. Our main focus was to keep movements simple, so that anyone could do them. This means that YOU or ANYONE can do the workouts if you are just looking for something new and fun to help set goals. So with simple movements we decided that we want you to have the opportunity to go in, set a time, then come back and beat that time. We want to motivate you to set goals and get fit! It's not just competition its to better yourself. We have high standards for our #Xnation Community which is a platform to grow Mentally as well as Physically. The events are programmed to test you on all those fronts but - at the same time show you that you are capable of anything if you just set your mind to it!
4 of our events are part of the Pharaoh's Series. The only way to be able to take part in the Pharaoh's Series is to qualify via our Online Qualifiers. You then will compete over 3 Weekends and tally up score on our Leaderboards. Our 1st weekend will have 2 events which will always be *Osiris and *Nut Sky Series. If you are only interested in doing one of the events, you can enter events separately but will not be able to compete in our Pro Class.
(DUE TO COVID-19 OUR AGE GROUPERS WILL HAVE TO QUALIFY THROUGH OUR ONLINE QUALIFERS, AS WE WILL ONLY TAKE TOP 5 MALE AND FEMALE ATHLETES TO KEEP IN LINE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING. PRO TEAMS WILL HAVE TO ENTER PRO CLASS INDIVIDUALLY AND IF EACH TEAM MEMBER MEETS OUR PRO STANDARDS, WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IF YOU WISH TO ENTER A PRO TEAM IN THE FUTURE)

Below are Events:
Events named after Egyptian Pharaoh's have sneaky riddles in Graphics for you to try and solve. If you work them out we will be giving Discounts/Free entries as well as Prizes. Be warned, they not easy and are all related to Egyptian Mythology.

*Osiris, *Nut Sky Series, *Set Storm Series, *Ra Sun Series. Athletes will earn points based on placement as well as Time Goals. For example you finish 1st - 100pts but also go under our Best Time Goal of 4 Times to beat you get +4. Which means you walk away with 104pts (See points description below Events). This means every second counts - so don't give up as 1pt can separate the Overall Winner. The Series is Winner takes all. 1st Money Prize Male and Female, 2nd and 3rd get Sponsored Prizes. (As we grow as an event we are looking for Prize Money for top 10 Athletes).
*Osiris - Only available to Pro Teams and Pro Individuals. Short 10min workout with 3 movements. This is the most Technical of our workouts due to the Squat Cleans that have to be preformed.

*Set Storm Series - Can be entered as a Separate Event Solo or Teams. This event is only 1km total of Running with 25 Movements. All are simple but Weight and Rep Schemes will challenge each Class - with that being said careful thought has gone into each Age Group Class and Weight was programmed so that everyone can move the Weight. However our Reps Scheme will challenge Athletes. Only our Pro's will have challenging Weights.

We always keep the distance as close as possible but cant promise it to be the same due to different GPS watches and Software used.
*PyramidX Unknown - This event has no classes and is 1st come first serve. We have created this event to push you beyond what you thought was possible. This event is to GROW as an Individual it is NOT a competition, It's YOU vs YOU. You can motivate fellow participant's but will have to complete all tasks by yourself. None of the tasks will be disclosed to any of the participants including you until you have to do them - it will be Unknown from start to finish. To complete Unknown you will have to reach an undisclosed amount of points. Each Task will have an undisclosed amount of points if completed, which means you will have to think about Tasks to do or skip, based on assumption of how much they are worth once they are revealed to you in that moment. Unknown is a 2 day STAY OVER event , but we will do the odd 1 day event. Accommodation and Food will always be Venue based, but we will always try provide these in your Entry Fee.
