We are proud to announce that CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town will be returning to the beautiful Green Point Athletic Stadium for our 2020 event that will take place from 6 - 9th of February 2020.
For the 2020 CrossFit® Games season there will be 28 Sanctioned Events and CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town is once again proud to be a part of the series where the winning female, male & team will receive an invite to compete at the CrossFit® Games 2020.
CrossFit® FiCT20 will be a 4-day event and as per previous years will take place at various locations across the beautiful city of Cape Town. Similar to 2019 we are excited to put together a competition that will put the individual athletes & teams through a very broad and inclusive fitness test aimed at finding the fittest.

There will be no wild cards for CrossFit® FiCT20, however we will use the following as a qualification system based off past performances.
FURTHER QUALIFICATIONS – INDIVIDUALS
FURTHER QUALIFICATIONS – TEAMS
Like last year we will hold a 10-day Online Qualifier where 3 separate Q-WODs will be released on the 22nd, 23rd & 24th of November 2019. All 3 WOD’s must be completed with video submission before the deadline on the 2nd of December 2019.
After video reviews the order of invites will be as follow:
*To qualify for the Community Series a team must register and compete in the official CrossFit® FiCT20 Online Qualifier. The top 50 Box Teams who did NOT qualify for the Main Event will be invited to register for the FiCT20 Community Series.
The Community Series event will be a one-day competition on Clifton Beach 4th Beach and will contain multiple workouts to find the top 5 teams.
TO BE ELIGIBLE TO TAKE PART IN THE COMMUNITY SERIES ALL 4 ATHLETES MUST TRAIN AT THE SAME BOX.
We believe that by allowing athletes to qualify both through the Open and through our own Online Qualifier we are allowing for most athletes to get a fair chance to qualify for CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town 2020, and by using the same qualification system that we had last season for the teams we also have a proven structure that will allow the right teams to qualify to compete both in our Main Event and in the Community Series.
Fittest in Cape Town will return to Clifton 4th Beach in 2020!
As the Fittest in Cape Town has a proud history of attracting a massive field we are proud to announce that the changes in structure for the Community Series are made to continue to be able to offer the bigger functional fitness community in South Africa a great outlet to compete in a high level competition, without the need to be ready for a multiple day competition.
The Community Series will in 2020 be a ONE Day competition taking place on Clifton 4th Beach where the teams will compete in 3 Events where the first workout will be the same as for the CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town 2020 Main Event!
After the one-day competition the top 5 teams will be invited to compete for the remainder of the weekend in CrossFit® FiCT20 Main Event.
As we see this as a way to offer the “non elite” athletes in our community a chance to compete their hearts out while also supporting the top level athletes in our sport, we are also including weekend tickets for all competing athletes in the FiCT 2020 Community Series for free. Which means that the entry fee is meant to be seen as a package that gives you a full 4 day CrossFit-experience of a life time.
CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town 2020 looks forward to once again bring together the strongest field South Africa has ever seen, and can't wait to welcome you all to compete in the most beautiful city in the world!
