Thank you for your interest in supporting and building the Iron Games Fitness Festival project! 

2019 Media  Overview

The 2019 inaugural year of The Iron Games focused on highlighting a vast array of fitness abilities in the most extreme playing grounds an event could provide! Programmed by Nick Fowler of Brute Strength, all 110 athletes proved themselves Iron Tough by completing 8 events over just 2 days. The first event kicked off with the sunrise as our competitors completed a 5K through Southern Utah University Campus. The day concluded in the heart of Cedar City where we shut down Main Street for the Clean and Jerk Ladder event. We witnessed athletes overcome their fears by doing their first ever swimming event at SUU Olympic swimming pool, and closed off an incredible weekend in the SUU Eccles Coliseum Stadium with a combination of sand bags, sled pushes, 25 yard sprints and the daunting worm for Teams! We were stunned at the support of our community, athletes, sponsors and spectators in 2019, it lit a fire underneath us for the future of our event!
