Announcing the CrossFit Open, the gateway to the 2011 CrossFit games and beyond.

Athletes one an ALL,

CrossFits MBS, Roots, and Verve are excited to announce a joint effort in the 2011 CrossFit Open "Sectionals".  This great event schedule that will pack the fun into one affiliate each Saturday for six weeks.

Event Outline

The 2011 CrossFit Open Sectionals will consist of a six week competition.  Every Tuesday the CrossFit mainsite will announce the week's workout and athletes will have until the following Sunday to complete and submit their time.  Each Saturday, one of the three affiliates will offer the week's workout to 100-150 athletes in a series of heats (10/15 athletes/heat).

The affiliate host for each week is as follows:

March 19: Verve
March 26: MBS
April 2: Verve
April 9: Roots
April 16: MBS
April 23: Verve

Verve: 3344 Walnut St., Denver, CO 80205
MBS: 10900 West 120th Avenue, Broomfield, CO 80021
Roots: 1980 8th St., Boulder, CO 80302


Sign-up for each week's Saturday workout will open on the Wednesday prior to the event on the website of the hosting affiliate.  For example, if CrossFit Verve is hosting March 19th, you will visit its website to sign-up for a heat.  Roots and Verve will utilize their MindBodyOnline systems for sign-up.  MBS will operate an email sign-up.  Donโ€™t worry, it will be simple!  Each affiliate will post a direct link to the class sign-up or email on the Wednesday prior to the Saturday event.  In other words, if you log-on to Roots on Wednesday morning and the event is at Verve that Saturday, Roots will post the link to Verveโ€™s sign-up page.  


The registration cost for the CrossFit Open Sectionals is $10 and will be paid online through the CrossFit mainsite.  Each athlete is responsible for registering themselves for the Open (note: registration is not yet open, we will notify athletes when it opens).  The cost to participate in the Saturday workouts at each affiliate is $20/Saturday.  Athletes will pay $20 cash on the day of the event to the affiliate host.  If you are a Verve athlete and Verve is hosting the $20 fee is waived for that weekend.


1. Why should I come to one of the Saturday competitions?  Because it will be a FUN time.  You'd sign-up to run a local 5K, so why not come get in a workout with the CrossFit community that you know and love?

2. What if I can't make the Saturday workout?  Each affiliate plans to offer the workout during the week during regularly scheduled class times. Verve will be hosting it as the WOD for each Wednesday for all six weeks.  This is at no charge to Verve athletes (minus the mainsite $10 to participate)

3. What if I sign-up for a spot and then find out I can't make it.  PLEASE take the time to cancel your class sign-up.  Other athletes in the community who would like a spot would appreciate your courtesy and awareness in this regard.

4. What time will the heats start?  8AM.  

For any other questions about the CrossFit Open, please visit http://games.crossfit.com/about/2011/ for more information.

Volunteers and Judges
We will need volunteers and judges for each weekend.  All athletes will be required to also judge a minimum of 2 heats of other athletes that day.  Restrictions, heads and guidelines will apply, so don't stress about this.

  19. Really? Admirable but useless. Look, everyone knows that Blanton will be the first guy out the door in a trade to lower the payroll. And with Andy Petitte having retired, Brian Cashman will come calling for Fat Joe any day now if not already.
