The location of the championship this year will be in two locations: one location of the event is located on the Islote de la Fermina, in Arrecife (Lanzarote), a few meters from the Playa del Reducto, the cradle of the 4 previous editions and this will be the second location, taking back the feeling of feeling the sand under our feet and enjoying this wonderful beach. Both locations allow us total control and the execution of all the relevant anti-Covid security measures. It is a unique location that also gives us the possibility to combine CrossFit events with aquatic events.
