Strength in Depth Online Qualifiers Are Up and Running


From: Morning Chalk Up

What happened?

Yesterday, while you were still finding new ways to eat Thanksgiving leftovers, the CrossFit Strength in Depth qualifier for individuals and teams got rolling as the event released all three WODs.

Athletes have a full 10 days to complete and submit their scores, giving them plenty of time to test and retest until their heart’s content. The deadline to submit scores is Wednesday, December 5th at Noon PT/ 8:00 PM GMT.

What about teams?

Team qualifier scores will be the sum of the team’s collective individual scores on the qualifier workouts. Athletes have the option to register as an individual and also as a member of a team. However, if they qualify for both they must choose just one division to compete in for the final.

Sorry guys, no double-dipping.

Once scores start pouring in, you can follow along with the leaderboard here.

15 Calorie Row
