The 2020 CrossFit Sanctionals Season

ByCrossFitMay 31, 2019

Last August, CrossFit, Inc. announced its first sanctioned event, the Dubai CrossFit Championship: an inaugural step in boldly expanding the competitive CrossFit season to meet the explosive growth of CrossFit competitions around the globe.

Today, CrossFit, Inc. announces the 2020 CrossFit Sanctionals™ season.

The season will kick off in November 2019 with the much-anticipated CrossFit Filthy 150 in Dublin, Ireland, directly following the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Open in October 2019. The season will conclude in Mexico at the Mayan CrossFit Championship during the first weekend in July. The 2020 CrossFit Sanctionals™ season will span the globe: 28 events in 21 different countries on six continents. From November to the following October, a CrossFit-sanctioned event will take place nearly every weekend somewhere around the world.

As in 2019, top finishers at each CrossFit Sanctionals™ event will receive invitations to compete against National Champions and the top 20 Open finishers at the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin.

These 28 independently owned and operated events represent the hard work, aspirations, and dreams of CrossFit affiliates, enthusiasts, volunteers, and athletes the world over. The majority of these competitions are long-standing events in their communities, with histories predating this new format. Each is a unique and particular expression of CrossFit’s universal methodology. Together, they represent CrossFit’s extraordinary and diverse international community.

The best way to enjoy a CrossFit Sanctionals™ competition is to participate in one. CrossFit is a participatory sport. Many sanctioned competitions have open categories for athletes of every ability. Others have robust team divisions. All need volunteers. All are welcoming. And all are eager to share their hard work and competitive vision with the worldwide CrossFit community. The Sanctionals™ have expanded the opportunities available to all who wish to express their fitness or enthusiasm in an officially sanctioned CrossFit competition.

Check out the CrossFit Games website for updates as the 2020 CrossFit competition season gets underway in October 2019 with the 2020 Reebok CrossFit Open.
