Arguably CrossFit’s single biggest competition outside the Games itself, Wodapalooza, has announced it will be returning to Bayside in Downtown Miami, May 13-16, 2021.
The 2021 edition of Wodapalooza marks the 10-year anniversary that attracts competitors and spectators from all over the globe to Miami.
The competition, which is usually hosted during the first quarter, has been pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe.
“This year, we’ll have to wait a little longer, changing the date to May for Wodapalooza was guided by logistics. With our desire to maintain our home in the iconic Bayfront Park, we were forced to be flexible,” said the organizers in a post on the Wodapalooza site.
A new change to the competition will be the Online Qualifier that will kick off on January 18, 2021. It sounds like Wodapalooza operators Live and Loud are still sorting through details and logistics when it comes to qualification, but will share details when they are available.
Wodapalooza also took the opportunity to reflect on the current diversity and inclusion discussion, stating, “Wodapalooza has always been about diversity with the inclusion of different abilities and ages invited to throw down on the competition floor, but now seems like a good time to highlight our commonalities despite our differences. Fitness brings us together and it motivates us. We can’t wait to dig into the details of planning a 10th anniversary party for you, the Wodapalooza community. Coming from far and near, you are the lifeblood of the event- injecting excitement, diversity, competitiveness, and unity into a festival that is more than a test of fitness, it’s a celebration of fitness. And we really hope to see you there.
