Feel free to shoot us an email if you don’t find the answer

Talk to your CrossFit Affiliate and ask them to register for the event. Once they have registered they will give you a code so that you can register your team. Team registration will open soon. We will give you the link here as soon as we set it up)

Teams are made up of 4 person mixed teams. Teams can be either MMMF, MMFF or MFFF. No changes to the team can be made on the day of the competition.

The competition takes place in all participating CrossFit Affiliates all across Switzerland simultaneously on the the same day.

Yes! The competition is divided into three categories, the Firebreathers, the Regulars and the Rookies. You would be in the Regular category (people who regularly scale their WODs) or Rookie category if you’re new to CrossFit.

The Firebreather category is for those who can Rx the majority of their workouts. If you are not sure you can complete all the movements, there is probably someone on your team that can do what you can’t! Challenge yourself and have fun. The Regulars category may be too easy for you.

Once you have registered your team, your team captain will receive a username, login and link for recording your results. These results will then have to be validated by your Affiliate.

You can still participate, but you have to complete the workouts in a Swiss based CrossFit Affiliate.

The competition is free for teams! But your CrossFit affiliate/box must be registered (check the box list). Tell them to contact us if you don’t see them in that list.

Yes, there is. You can order it directly on (check in the main menu for direct link). It is also available through your Affiliate.
