CrossFit, Inc. confirmed the second CrossFit-sanctioned event: the Granite Games, a four-day competition, which will take place in June of 2019.
Along with the recently announced Dubai CrossFit Championship, the Granite Games competition is a newly sanctioned event that will award CrossFit Games spots while continuing the Granite Games tradition of giving back to local communities and strengthening participants' bond with fitness.
"The Granite Games is our second sanctioned event partner and part of a new chapter for CrossFit," said Greg Glassman, CrossFit's Founder and Chairman. "Through sanctioned events like this one, we'll be able to keep pace with the explosive growth and interest in the Games and better serve our affiliates, trainers and athletes at the same time."
CrossFit-sanctioned competitions are replacing CrossFit's Regional events and will become a direct pathway for the top men, women and team finishers to receive invitations to compete at the CrossFit Games.
CrossFit's partnership with the Granite Games builds upon the Granite Games' success over the past eight years. The Granite Games also has a rich legacy of supporting local and national non-profit organizations through programs like revenue sharing and Fitness Education Scholarships.
Details regarding the 2019 season will be released in the annual Rulebook. Stay tuned for more announcements.
