It wasn’t more than a day after Rogue Fitness announced their sanctioned event — the Rogue Invitational — that personalized physical invitations began arriving in athletes’ mailboxes. 

The Invitational, which will also include an online qualifier, will be filled mostly by invited athletes. There will be 20 male and 20 female athletes, and 10 teams competing in Columbus at Rogue Headquarters over two days. The winners will qualify for the CrossFit Games and $50,000 for individuals and $20,000 for teams. The rest of the field will be vying for upwards of $400,000 in prize money, including $5,000 for each event win.
