239,106 Athletes Register for 10th CrossFit Open

Oct 14, 2019 by

At the close of 20.1, 239,106 athletes registered for the 10th CrossFit Open according to numbers provided by CrossFit, Inc. CrossFit also said that between the two Opens this year a combined 450,386 individual athletes signed up to participate.

One big thing: This is actually a net financial win for CrossFit. With two Opens in a single year, there were a combined 597,752 total signups, which is about 181,000 more signups than the 2018 Open. That’s $3,620,000 more in revenue.

The big picture: The reduced number of sign-ups isn’t too surprising given the move from late February to October. It is also the second Open of the year, which is also a lot to ask of affiliates. The important thing to note is where the numbers are next year.

By the numbers:

  • 2019/2020 – 239,106
  • 2019 – 358,646
  • 2018 – 416,000
  • 2017 – 380,000
  • 2016 – 324,307
  • 2015 – 273,257
  • 2014 – 209,948
  • 2013 – 140,000
  • 2012 – 70,000
  • 2011 – 26,000
