Registration Numbers Down From Last Year for the 2020 CrossFit Open

The 2020 CrossFit Open began last week, with the 20.1. Now the registration numbers are in, and they are not as good as some may have hoped.

Nonetheless, the number of participants in this CrossFit Open are in. CrossFit HQ released the numbers, which show a dramatic decline in registrations, compared to the 2019 CrossFit Open. For the previous season, 358,646 people registered for the event. However this year, only 239,106 people have decided to take part. This is a notable decline of 119,540 athletes from the last 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

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.
