Event Re-Locates From Baltimore For The First Time
Created in 2012, this marks the first time it will not take place in the Baltimore, MD, area.
The Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge is a qualifying event for the top male, female, and team finishers to compete in the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin. The event’s premise is to provide a competition for everyday fitness enthusiasts in various cities across the USA.
“As we head into our 9th year, we are extremely excited to bring our event and community into Knoxville. We are prepared to provide a safe competition for our athletes, staff, spectators, and vendors.” said Wilson Pak, Director of the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge.
The Knoxville Convention Center will serve as host event venue. Knoxville stands out among competitor destinations thanks to its walkability, the quality of hotels, and array of restaurants.
“This is huge for Knoxville and we are thrilled,” said Kim Bumpas, President of Visit Knoxville. “Knowing that Knoxville was chosen as the host continues to speak to the quality of our destination as it relates to high-caliber sporting events, and we’re looking forward to welcoming these CrossFit athletes, families, and fans.”
“We’re honored to host this prestigious event,” said Chad Culver, Senior Director of the Visit Knoxville Sports Commission. “There are only 10 qualifying events for the CrossFit Games in the world, and we couldn’t be more excited that one of those will happen right here in Knoxville.”
And Knoxville is no stranger to fitness. Several residents go hiking and biking in the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the city is home to the University of Tennessee.
