 In Event

DATE:  May 25-27, 2018,  9 a.m.-5:15 p.m daily.

LOCATION:  Del Mar Arena, 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Del Mar, California


When Diablo’s athletes walk onto the arena floor at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, California, they can hear our Community roar! And, in the heat of battle, when they’re pushing hard to finish, they will often look up and see the Diablo red waving and cheering them on. It is a powerful motivator. Please, join us in Del Mar Memorial Day weekend for the CrossFit Games West Regional Competition. You’ll see some spectacular performances while helping our athletes on the arena floor!

In 2018 Diablo CrossFit will likely have 2 Teams and 3 Individual athletes competing at the West Regional Competition:

  • Teams: Diablo & Diablo Moxie (athletes TBA)
  • Individuals: Whitney Heuser, Alessandra Pichelli & Kyle Kleinschmidt

The Del Mar Fairgrounds may be the best venue in the world to watch a CrossFit competition. And, in 2018 the Region is bigger and badder than ever, with many of the world’s best CrossFit athletes competing for a ticket to the CrossFit Games.


From the CrossFit Games site:

The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth.

In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, continuing with the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.

The 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games West Regional features the fittest men, women and teams from the northwestern United States, western Canada, and Northern and Southern California. Only the top 40 men, 40 women and 30 four-person teams are invited to compete at the West Regional.

Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.

The five men, five women and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 1-5.
