Some Challenges are open for new members join until the end. This is usually for Goals Challenges, where the competition is not affected.
Some Challenges, like team Challenges with average scoring, are negatively affected by late joiners with no scores, so a cutoff is used. These Challenges are closed to new members after 85% of the challenge is completed, or 48 hours until the end - whatever is later.
