Overview

The fittest men, women, and teams from each region of the world advance to the second stage of the CrossFit Games season: the Regionals.

CrossFit splits the world into 17 regions. There are 10 regions in the United States (North East, Mid Atlantic, South East, Central East, North Central, South Central, North West, South West, Northern California, Southern California), and 7 international regions (Canada West, Canada East, Latin America, Asia, Africa, Australia and Europe). Athletes are placed in their region during Open registration based on their residence as of Jan. 1 of that year.

To qualify, the Regional competitors had to prove that they were their region's fittest athletes by competing in the five-week, five-workout online Open and finishing well in the overall standings. The number of athletes to qualify from each region varies from 10 to 30 (20 for all U.S. regions).

  • 20 men, 20 women and 15 teams advance from regions in the U.S. and Canada.

  • 30 men, 30 women and 20 teams advance from Europe and Australia.

  • 10 men, 10 women and 10 teams advance from Latin America, Asia, and Africa.

The 17 regions feed into eight Regional competitions.

At the Regionals, 40 men, 40 women, and 30 teams compete over three days for the right to advance to the CrossFit Games. (The larger South Regional has 50 men, 50 women and 40 teams.)

All Regional competitors face the same workouts, whether they're in Wollongong, Australia, or Atlanta, Georgia.

Competitors care about how they place relative to their peers at their Regional, since that's what determines how many points they earn and where they'll rank in the overall standings. Claiming first in an event earns an athlete 100 points, second earns 95 points, third 90, fourth 85, fifth 80, sixth 75. The scale then drops by 2-point increments for seventh through 30th, and then by one-point increments from 30th-50th. The athlete with the most points will claim first in the overall standings; the top five athletes overall at the end of the weekend earn the right to advance to the CrossFit Games.

All Games qualifiers will receive a piece of the season's prize purse. All cash prizes are paid in U.S. dollars.

Individual Division

  • First Place: $5,000
  • Second Place: $4,000
  • Third Place: $3,000
  • Fourth Place: $2,000
  • Fifth Place: $1,000

Team Division

  • First Place: $3,000
  • Second Place: $2,500
  • Third Place: $2,000
  • Fourth Place: $1,500
  • Fifth Place: $1,000

Drug testing is required for any individual athlete or team to advance to the Games or to collect prizes.

Overview

The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth.

In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, advancing to the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.

The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Atlantic Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from the Mid Atlantic and South East, United States. Only the top 40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Atlantic Regional. 

Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.

The five men, five women, and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 3-6.

Overview

The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth.

In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, advancing to the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.

The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Meridian Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Only the top 40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Meridian Regional.

Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.

The five men, five women, and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 3-6.

Overview

Much like the CrossFit Games Open, the Online Qualifier challenges athletes’ mental and physical game with max lifts, high-skill movements and tests of general physical preparedness. In its fourth year, the Online Qualifier will be a stepping stone for both masters and teenagers on their journeys to get to the CrossFit Games.

In 2017, the number of teenagers competing at the Games will double. The top 200 teenagers from each division after the Open will join the masters to compete in the Online Qualifier. The four-day competition will decide which 20 teens from each division will head to Madison, Wisconsin, for the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games. In 2016, only 10 teenagers from each division were invited to compete at the Games.

A new competition division will be introduced this year, too. In 2010, the first masters divisions were created. In 2013, the 40-44 Masters Division joined the fray. 2017 will be the inaugural year for the new 35-39 Masters Division. Athletes in this division are encouraged to participate in the worldwide Open and Online Qualifier for the chance to compete at the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games.

In the Online Qualifier, Masters athletes will submit scores and/or videos for four workouts. Once the Online Qualifier workouts are released, athletes will have four days to complete them. Athletes submitting scores must use a registered judge for each workout and have their performances validated by a licensed CrossFit affiliate in good standing. In addition, all four workouts must be videotaped. Alternatively, athletes may elect to submit videos of the four workouts online for judging and validation. All videos submitted for review must adhere to standard Open video submission guidelines.

The 2017 Online Qualifier will take place Thursday-Monday, April 20-24, 2017.
