Rogue Fitness Announces CrossFit-sanctioned Event
Columbus-based company Rogue Fitness has announced The Rogue Invitational, a two-day, CrossFit-sanctioned event taking place in May 2019 at the Rogue Fitness Headquarters, 545 E. Fifth Ave.
The event will feature top competitors from around the world, with 40 male and female athletes in single competitions (including finishers from the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games), as well as 10 teams in group competitions. Details on remaining competition spots will be released at a later date.
Winners of the male, female, and team divisions of The Rogue Invitational will be invited to compete at the 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, WI. In past years, competitors would qualify for the games through participation in the regionals. This will be the first year independent fitness events will take place.
Winners of the male and female divisions will each receive a $50,000 cash prize. Additional prizes range from $35,000 for second place finishers to $1,000 for 10th place.
The Rogue Invitational is scheduled to take place on the weekend of May 18 and 19, 2019. For more information, visit roguefitness.com/invitational, including details surrounding spectator tickets, sponsorships, and volunteer opportunities.
