We are officially 66 days from the announcement of the CrossFit Open 16.1 workout. Beginning on February 25, the Open will again consist of five weeks running through March 28. Based on the article published by CrossFit HQ, it appears that it will be similar to last year’s structure.
Qualifying for the Regionals will again require finishing in the Top 20 in your region in the U.S. and Canada, while Europe and Australia require Top 30 to advance. Asia and Africa are allotted 10 spots for Regional qualifying.
The Masters Qualifier will again include the Top 200 in each age division and further narrow the field down to the Top 20 in a 4-day online qualifier in April.
The Regionals will be spread out over the course of three weekends beginning on May 13 and ending the weekend of May 27-29. The first Regional workout will begin in the Pacific Regional, followed by the South and California Regionals. Weekend #2 will be test athletes in the West and Atlantic Regionals. The Central, Meridian and East Regionals will wrap things up.
As of this article, the host cities have yet to be announced.
The CrossFit Games will be held in the StubHub Center in Carson, California, again this year. This year, however, the dates have been moved up one week and will now take place from July 19-24.
Regional tickets will be released on Monday, March 28.
CrossFit Games tickets will be released on Thursday, April 28.
