First Individual Event of 2018 CrossFit® Games Regionals Announced

It’s been a great day for CrossFit® athletes and fans.

Yesterday, Dave Castro provided a hint for one the 2018 CrossFit Games Regionals workouts, and now we’re getting a glimpse of the first full individual workout. What was Castro’s hint earlier? Check it out here.

A few hours ago, CrossFit HQ subtly released the first workout for the Individual Regionals athletes. With the announcement of this first workout, athletes competing the first weekend of Regionals now have a little over three weeks to prepare. So what does the workout entail? Check it out below.

Triple 3

For Time

  • 3000-Meter Row
  • 300 Double-Unders
  • 3-Mile Run

Score: An athlete’s time to finish the workout, and there’s a 49-minute time cap.

Workout Description

As per CrossFit’s workout description, an athlete will begin at the beginning mat and proceed to the rowing machine after a countdown. After completing the row, they’ll advance to the double-unders and advance after every 100 completes.

Once the double-unders are complete, athlete will then run 3-miles on an Assault AirRunner before crossing the finish mat.

Wait, doesn’t that workout look familiar? Why yes, it does.

We got the first taste of this workout at the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, and now we’re seeing it once more, only at the Regionals level. The workout was performed in a similar manner, so how did the athletes fair in 2014?

Below we’ve included the men’s and women’s top three individual athletes from 2014.

These were some seriously impressive times, and it’s going to be interesting to see how scores compare this year. Every time we see a repeat workout whether it be at the Open, Regionals, or the Games, scores always tend to improve. For example, check out the differences between this CrossFit Open workout 18.5 vs. 11.6 vs. 12.5.
