2014 Crossfit Open dates

Have yet to see any word at all from Crossfit HQ on when and how the Open will take place this year.

One would assume it will be a similar process as 2011,2012 and 2013 but who knows ?

Only reason i care is I actually am training for it this year and also because depending on the dates we have a tripped booked around it. Currently gone to Disney as of April 27th.

As a participant each year (cut short in 2012) I am looking forward to seeing the dates.

Re: 2014 Crossfit Open dates

Haven't heard anything yet, but if I had to guess, I would say that you would be safe to go on your trip. The latest the games sectional wods have went is mid April.

Keep an eye on http://games.crossfit.com/(WFS). I expect a timeline to be released within the next 3-4 weeks.

Re: 2014 Crossfit Open dates

I find it odd that something has yet to surface about any of the details for this year. I doubt anything would change (based on the fact HQ makes a pile of money from the Open)

However, in 2012, they announced the dates towards the end of October. Last year the dates were known by the end of November, and this year.....almost the end of 2013 and still nothing.

My guess is a similar time frame and format to last year, but as no one has yet to hear anything and it is so well known that the last three years has been a total of 14 movements, are we about to see something different for a qualifier ?

Re: 2014 Crossfit Open dates

Looks like one change that is being made is releasing the WODs on a Thursday, instead of a Wednesday.

If the deadline for submission is still the same, that means we have one less day to complete it.

Also, hopefully they make the change and make competitors declare Individual or Team. Some of the competitors in the Team comp at Regionals were clearly not at that level and some better competitors had to watch a mediocre Competition.

Re: 2014 Crossfit Open dates

Help out a newb. So CF releases a workout every week for five weeks. Athletes that want to compete at regionals do each of the five workouts, and submit their scores. Must the athletes do each workout in a specified time? Do they have to submit their score before the next workout is posted? And the athletes with the best combined score in each region get to go to regionals? Are scores posted publicly as they're submitted?

Actually, the timeline is usually just till Sunday I think, and then the next workout isn't announced till Thursday.And the athletes with the best combined score in each region get to go to regionals? Yes.Are scores posted publicly as they're submitted? Yes.

Re: 2014 Crossfit Open dates

Thanks, Jeff! Not for a second did I think about competing, but at least one person from my box is going to. I didn't want to be clueless when it comes up in discussion.
