South Durham CF Open Intramurals

The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition crowning the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth. Last year, many SODU athletes tried their hand at the Open and participated in Intramurals and it was a ton of fun!!!

Our goals at SODU include educating and inspiring our athletes. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of your friends cheering for you will help you reach levels of performance you didn’t believe possible.

TEAMS

We will be putting together 4 teams to compete against one another each week (5 weeks in total). You must register for the open to be on a team!

Team Captains will be posted soon! Everyone can, and should, participate in what will be a fantastic, fun time and great, supportive competition.

Every athlete at SODU will be fair game to be recruited onto a team. Expect to be courted by one of our Team Captains to join their team – probably more than one. Pick the most fun team for you!
