The Mayan CrossFit Classic announced, in an Instagram post, on Monday afternoon that “due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the safe hosting of large-scale events, the Mayan CrossFit Classic will be postponed until a later date.” The event was originally scheduled to take place July 3-5 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
One big thing: Although not surprising, this postponement brings us one step closer to a total disruption of the 2019-2020 Sanctionals season. Only the Asbury Park Summer Games remains on the season schedule as originally planned.
The Mayan CrossFit Classic is the fourth Loud and Live event to be postponed in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers did not announce a new date for the competition.
From the announcement: “The extent of the spread of the virus worldwide has led us to make the decision to postpone the Mayan CrossFit Classic.”
- “We are considering the safety of athletes, spectators, and partners when making this decision and we regret not being able to bolster the Latin American community with a live event in Mexico in July as planned.”
- “As we look for a new date, we will communicate plans for the future as soon as we have them and appreciate your patience during this time of uncertainty.”
- “We hope we can all continue to celebrate this community together and remember that we are stronger together. You encourage us to continue our fitness and motivate us to get better.”
