Male and Female OPEN Divisions

Our goal for the Southern Crusade as an event has always been to remain inclusive for the CrossFit Community. Having the OPEN division structured in this way, we believe, achieves this.

This goes a long way to solving the age-old dilemma of “should I Rx the division or not?”. This year’s event allows you decide which version of the workout best suits YOU for YOU to get the best outcome for YOU, as you do day in and day out at your box when your coaching team write it on the board.

  • This division will be programmed and scored as per the CrossFit Games OPEN.
  • Athletes will be required to select which version of the workout they will complete, the “Rx” OR the “Scaled” version.
  • As with the OPEN, athletes completing the minimum work requirements in the “Rx” workouts will score higher than athletes who complete the minimum work requirements of the “scaled” workouts.
  • The workouts will be released in the week prior to the event and you will let us know which version you will be doing on the day.

18 male + 18 Female spaces ONLY (1 division each) 
All athletes will complete 3 Workouts with an “Rx” and “scaled” version available for each.

There will be a 4th workout, a TOP 6 Male + TOP 6 Female Final, to award overall division placings.

$150 – 1st place, $100 – 2nd place, $50 – 3rd place. 

Other prizes will be available and will be announced closer to the event.


If you are ONLY intending to volunteer, please follow the form as we still need your name and t-shirt sizing.


Athletes should talk to their Coach/Affiliate owner to determine the most suitable division to enter and as the WODs are released, the best version of them to compete in. As a rough guide, if you compete in the CrossFit Open and do a majority of the WODs as Rx, you would be suited for the Rx workouts. Similarly, if you compete in the CrossFit Open and require scaling on a couple of the WODs, then the scaled workouts would be more suited for you.
