It's the CrossFit OPEN! which this year starts on Mar 1.

The games enables us to compare our level of fitness with other CrossFitters around the world. Some of us just join for the sheer fun of it and take part in one or two of the workouts, sharing our sweat and joy with the all the other fans and enthusiasts.

You can read some impressions of the Open from previous participants here.

The CrossFit OPEN started in 2011 and is the largest participatory sporting event in the world, with more than 322,000 participants in 2023.

Masters, teen, adaptive, scaled and foundations divisions welcome a broad group of participants; and continent-based semifinals guarantee that athletes from all areas of the world will be represented at the Games.
