2019 CrossFit Games Rulebook Released, Updates for All Athletes

The Rules of the 2019 CrossFit Games are now released! These rules were finalized last week after months of discussion with our athletes, coaches, judges and staff. They reflect all the feedback we’ve received from athletes, teams and fans over the past year.

We want to make sure these rules provide a fair competition for everyone involved: athletes, teams and fans alike. That’s why we have taken steps to ensure fairness, including:

A new scoring system based on the athlete’s performance rather than their time. For example, if an athlete finishes in first place they will score higher than someone finishing in 25th place.

An increase of points for quality events (i.e., weightlifting) and elimination of points for quantity events (i.e., running).

Allowing athletes to compete in multiple events. Previously, only one event could be competed in at any given time.

New age limits for women and men (18 years old), which means there will no longer be a separate 18+ category. You’ll see us use the same term for both genders throughout the rulebook.

A reduction of the number of events per day from 10 to 7, with 1 being a timed event and 5 being open field.

Athletes will no longer be required to do the and event each day. They can choose which ones they want to compete in.

We’ve also included some new requirements that were not previously in place, including:

All athletes must have either a mobile or a home phone. The cell phone requirement still stands.

Athletes must attend athlete meetings, which will take place on Wednesday and Thursday of competition week.

Athletes can no longer leave the venue during their entire stay.

Event qualifiers will be held Saturday and Sunday in the afternoon for all athletes. The top 5 men and top 5 women from each event move on to the main competition. The top 12 men and top 16 women advance to Monday’s event finals.
