Event Information

All levels of athletes are welcome to join us for 2 Days and 3 separate workout competitions, collectively called The SLO ULTRA GAMES. You can compete in THE GAMES (do all three Saturday-Sunday events) or do a Single Event (pick the strength, functional fitness or endurance event). 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!

SATURDAY 9a-2p

Event #1: a 2 min MAX STRENGTH Log Clean & Press event.

Event #2: a 6 min and then an 8-10 min cross-fit style FUNCTIONAL FITNESS workout with rest in-between.

*You will have all day Saturday to complete the two events (three workouts) and will be pre-assigned heats. Recovery tent is open all day and teams are welcome to camp and cheer from the side of arena all day.

SUNDAY 8:30a-12p

We will host waves of athletes into Event #3, the ENDURANCE Race. Plan for 75 min to 90 min of lake swimming (half mile est), trail running (1.5 mile est), 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 co-ed 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 & what to expect via email to prepare gear and any teamwork elements. Train for crossfit style exercises, open water swimming, trail running and mental resiliency.  

Your friends and family can spectate or participate in the SLO ULTRA Trail runs and Obstacle races as well. We offer them a trail marathon, a trail half, or a 5k obstacle race-run. All events are taking place at beautiful Lopez Lake in addition to the 2 Day SLO ULTRA FESTIVAL where spectators and athletes will enjoy activities, music, food & beverages plus awards celebration. We truly have something for everyone who loves the outdoors, every level of fitness and for connecting with like-minded humans who are passionate about adventure. These events are to help raise funds for the SLO Sheriffs Advisory Foundation and SLO County Parks. Stay 10 minutes away in Historic Arroyo Grande or camp at Lopez Lake. Bring friends, family and fans because there is plenty parking and festivities for all.

Owner: Headstrong Fit. When asked why he started Headstrong, Robby says, “I’ve always wanted to find the smartest way to train. I’ve competed in a lot of different types of strength sports and sports in general, I’ve been injured a lot, and I wanted to take all of those experiences and create something special. I wanted to create a community that focuses on helping people with their fitness goals, mental goals, and injury prevention goals. There isn’t one right way of fitness—every method has its merit.”
