All levels of athletes are welcome to join us for 2 Days and 3 separate workout competitions, collectively called The SLO ULTRA GAMES.

Go solo or join a 2 person team, however teams must do all the 3 events TOGETHER. Shirts, goody bags, awards, finisher medals, recovery lounge & snacks included!
From 9am-2pm on Saturday we will host Event #1 by heats. It is a 2 min MAX STRENGTH Log Clean & Press event. Then follow it up Saturday with Event #2 that is made up of both a 6 min and then an 8-10min crossfit style FUNCTIONAL FITNESS workout with rest in-between. You will have all day Saturday to complete the two events (three workouts) and will sign up for your preferred heats at packet pick up (first come first serve). Then on Sunday at 8:30am we will host waves of athletes into Event #3, the ENDURANCE Race. Plan for 75-90 min of half mile lake swim, trail running, carries, obstacles, hills, pulls-pushes and unexpected tests of your body and mind. Athletes and Teams will be scored and awarded by male, female or coed categories as well as age groups. Military and First Responders will be in their own division separate from civilians. Water exit drop bags & water safety will be provided. If you pre-reg, you will get the workouts in advance via email to prepare gear and teamwork elements. Train for crossfit style exercises, open water swimming, trail running and mental resiliency.
