Welcome to the 2010 CrossFit Games!
The 2010 CrossFit Games season is upon us. Because of the extraordinary success of the 09 Games, we have added another layer of qualifier. Last year, the Regionals were the starting point for potential competitors. This year, there will be 13 Regionals around the world that all take place in May. But unlike last year, you now have to qualify for the Regionals (with a few exceptions in continents with sparse populations of CrossFitters).
Feeding these Regionals will be approximately 30 Sectional competitions, which will be open to anyone. The Sectionals will take place from mid-February to late March. There will even be a Sectional held as one of the events at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio.
We are going to launch a special Registration Website with detailed information on each event, hopefully on Monday, December 21st. Athlete and spectator registration for the Sectionals will open at launch. We will do our best to allow everyone in who wants to compete, but at some point we may have to cut it off. Spectator attendance at most Sectionals will be limited, so you'll want to act quickly.
In the meantime, you can scroll down (or click on the Qualifiers tab on the left) for preliminary information about the Regionals and their respective Sectionals. There are 7 Regions in the US, divided into 21 Sections. Canada, Europe, and Australia are their own Regions with 4 Sections each. Asia, Africa, and Central/South America are their own Regions without Sections. There are some maps to help those of you who are visually oriented.
Similarly, affiliate teams will have to qualify to compete in the Games this year. The Regional events will also serve as the team qualifiers for this year's Affiliate Cup. There will be no team workouts at the Sectionals. The Regionals are not until May, so you have time to prepare. More information about the Affiliate Cup competition coming soon.
Also, there will be a limited Master's competition (50+) for both men and women. Like the Affiliate Cup qualifiers, the Master's qualifiers will also take place at the Regionals in May. There will be no separate Master's workouts at the Sectionals. More information about the Master's competition coming soon.
There will be an Online Qualifier for deployed armed services personnel only. This will take place in May also. More information soon.
Finally, the winner's purse for the 2010 Games will be $25,000 each for the World's Fittest Man and Woman, generously sponsored by PROGENEX.
