Individual Event Times for Day 1 of the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games

Today is the day that CrossFit athletes and fans worldwide have been waiting for: the official first day of the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games. Dave Castro has said on multiple occasions that this year’s Reebok CrossFit Games’ first day will be the hardest in Games history, and that’s for good reason.

For the first day of the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games there are four events, which all test different areas of an athlete’s athleticism. And while four events are awesome (mostly for us fans), there has to be a little more attention to the event schedule in order to ensure not missing a beat. After all, two of the events today (Events 3 & 4) are pretty short, so they’ll come and go fast.

If you’re interested in the set times for the individual events for day one, we’ve included them below, along with a link on how to watch. Remember, the Reebok CrossFit Games are held in Madison, Wisconsin, aka central daylight time (CDT), so convert your times accordingly.

As of right now, there’s only been one individual event time released for Friday (The Battleground), so we’re still waiting on the full schedule posting for the later days of the Reebok CrossFit Games. We’ll be updating and creating new articles for the days that follow as the full schedule is released to the public.

This year, there have been a ton of ups and down in lead up to the Games, and from athlete drug violations to 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games firsts, it’s been an exciting ride. Below we’ve included a timeline of event announcements and hints from the past three weeks if you’d like to play a little catch up!
