*For our calculation of finishers, we include all statistics from doubles and relays. Hence, 144 doubles results translate to 288 finishers. We acknowledge that some participants in these doubles and relay events might also have individual results. Nonetheless, this methodology ensures a consistent comparison across all HYROX events.

Women’s Pro Race

We knew there would be a battle for the podium on Saturday in Birmingham as several HYROX veterans took to the women’s field. We were not disappointed. Kate had over a one-minute lead after the burpee broad jumps and did not look back. Jade pushed hard and was comfortably in 2nd from then on out, but the battle for that final podium spot was not decided until the very end. Chiara and Shaunie were externally close and Chiara got to the wall balls first. Shaunie made it count at that final station however finishing in 4 minutes flat, while Chiara’s wall balls were 5:23.

Another athlete to be on the lookout for is Jodie Digby. She had the fastest run lap at 2:57, the 5th fastest run total at 33:47, was 6th in BBJ, and 8th in the lunges. Her sled pull took 11 and a half minutes, however, causing her an overall 6th place finish with a high 1:19.

Earlier, in the 8:40 wave, Adam Corlett of Warrington was the first to finish. His impressive timing not only won him his age group but also secured him the second-place overall.
