The Rogue Invitational is one of the most prestigious CrossFit-licenced events of the year, featuring many of the sport’s greatest athletes and offering one of the biggest prize purses in the CrossFit competition calendar.
Set to take place in Austin, Texas, between October 29 and 31, 2021, the competition’s previous winners include five-time Fittest Woman and Man on Earth, Tia Clair Toomey and Mat Fraser.
The event, organised by Rogue, is known for being a trail-blazer – being the first big event to move to an online format when the pandemic hit while streaming all the action in 2020 and offering Bitcoin and an uncapped prize purse for its competing athletes for 2021.
The 2021 Rogue Invitational minimum prize purse is set at $1,250,000 but with Bitcoin and ticket sales contributing to athlete payouts, the prize money currently stands at $1,434,255. All competing athletes will receive a percentage from this pool based on their overall placement.
Now on its third iteration, the Rogue Invitational will see 20 male and 20 female top CrossFit athletes compete for the top spot, as well as host a Legends event with athletes such as Rich Froning and Julie Foucher, as well as debut a Strongman competition with 10 of the world’s top Strongman competitors.
