GRID 6 SC – RACE 5 – Thruster Ladder

Race 5 of 9. Individuals accumulate points for their team… moving down the GRID.





The goal of the Ladder is to accumulate as many points as possible, as a team, within 2.5 minutes.

Each lane will have 4 male bars and 4 female bars; 1 of each per quadrant. The bars increase in weight moving down the GRID.

The bars in the first quadrant are worth 1 point when successfully lifted. The bars in the 2nd are worth 2 points, 3 in 3rd, and 4 in 4th.

  • In each lane, only one Player at a time may be in play on the ladder.
  • No succeeding Player may leave the Start Zone to enter the ladder until the previous Player has crossed into the Finish Zone.
  • A Player on the ladder may attempt to accumulate as many points (with a maximum of 10 points) for their team as possible by choosing which bars to attempt to lift. Males may only lift male bars, females may only lift female bars.
  • A Player may start anywhere on the ladder and may skip any bar, but may only move forward through the ladder. A Player is permitted only one lift attempt per bar.
  • Players must alternate by gender: each Player entering the ladder must be of a different gender than the prior Player. A Player is not required to attempt a lift (may run through) as long as adhering to the gender alternation rule.
