This years CrossFit Games, July 16-8th, will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson California (LA). This came as a surprise to many and the CrossFit Ranch in Aromas has been the home of the games since it started. However, with CrossFit becoming increasingly popular and thus permitting issues became an issue, CrossFit decided to go even bigger this year.
The competition will be held in the 8,000 seat tennis arena as well as the 8,000 seat track arena. Box suites will also be sold for those who want to watch the competition in style. One parking lot will still be designated for those who want to set up day tents for their groups, however there will be no overnight camping allowed.
And as for the terrain, although none of the athletes have to sweat over that nasty, dusty hill this year, there will be some “unusual” structures built by Rogue to insure the programming of the unknown and the unknowable.
For us, I feel the biggest bummer is that it will be tough to get as many CFWSC folks to come support, as it is a pretty big commitment to go all the way down to SoCal for a weekend. But if you have the means, mark your calendar as it would be great to have a good CF West representation down at the Games. If you’d like to read more, check this out.
