About The Event
EARN YOUR DEKA MARK! DEKA, from the creators of Spartan, is a decathlon of functional fitness designed for ALL levels. The DEKA STRONG is ten functional fitness zones with ZERO running. The DEKA MILE combines the ten DEKA zones each preceded by 160-meters of running (1-mile total).
The 10 DEKA Zones include: ZONE 1: 30 RAM Alternating Reverse Lunges (Males 55 lb/ Females 33 lb/ Kids 22 lb) ZONE 2: 500-m Row (Kids 250-m) ZONE 3: 20 Box Jump Over/ Step-Overs (24-in height) ZONE 4: 25 Med Ball Sit-ups (Males 20 lb/ Females 14 lb/Kids 10 lb) ZONE 5: 500-m SkiErg (Kids 250-m) ZONE 6: 100-m Farmer’s Carry (Males 60 lb/ Females 40 lb/Kids 20 lb) ZONE 7: 25-calories Air Bike (Kids 12 cal) ZONE 8: 20 Dead Ball Over Shoulders (Males 60 lb/ Females 40 lb/Kids 20 lb) ZONE 9: 100-m Tank Push/Pull ZONE 10: 20 RAM Burpees (Males 44 lb/ Females 22 lb/ Kids 11 lb)
The DEKA events are held nation-wide and your “DEKA MARK” (time to complete all ten zones) will be ranked on SPARTAN RACE’s Leaderboard along with other athletes. That being said, while this can be a competitive event, it is also designed for all levels. For those that are not interested in competing, it’s still a great way to measure where your fitness level is currently at, and then use it as a benchmark to see how your fitness improves over time.
In addition to individual prizes and awards, we thought it would be fun to have a GYM vs. GYM COMPETITION. The top gym will be crowned EVENT CHAMPION.
