On the first day of competition at the 2018 Kill Cliff Granite Games, HQ announced the second addition to the CrossFit Games Qualifiers. Just one week after the Dubai announcement, HQ shared that the Granite Games will become the second qualifying event on the competition calendar, replacing regionals, in 2019.
Athletes competing at the 2018 Granite Games will not be competing to earn a ticket to the 2019 CrossFit Games.
“The Granite Games is our second sanctioned event partner and part of a new chapter for CrossFit,” said Greg Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and Chairman.
The top athletes from the female, male, and team events completed in June of 2019 will earn a golden ticket to the CF Games in August of 2019.
It’s hard to say at this point how many sanctioned qualifier events there will be, and per usual, HQ is keeping everyone on their toes as they roll out the new format and announcements.
Glassman states that “Through sanctioned events like this one, we’ll be able to keep pace with the explosive growth and interest in the Games – and better serve our affiliates, trainers, and athletes at the same time.”
