Strengthen Community, Serve Your 90%, Have Fun and Make Good Money on October 21, 2023
We are actively recruiting hosts for the October 21, 2023 Individual and 3-Person Same-Sex Teams one-day event. Please check this link to see if your area is still open. FestivusGames.com/host-list If you don’t see a host within about 75 miles of you we encourage you to apply right away before the area is taken.
On October 21, 2023 more than 100 Boxes, from all across the U.S., Canada, and will host thousands of Novice, Intermediate and Masters 45+ athletes. Athletes can choose to compete as two person same-sex and mixed-sex teams in this one-day event.
Festivus Games is in its 12th year as THE nationwide functional-fitness competition for novice and intermediate athletes only (No pure Rx or fire breathers!). Festivus Games was designed so it wouldn’t be necessary to scale the events. No athlete will need to scale any of the events. The competition is about capacity more than a high degree of skill. Everyone can row…just how fast? Everyone can deadlift…just how much?
