Event description

Description

Men of bravery and valor are invited to gather for a new type of fellowship! Competitive-minded attendees will be challenged by classic strength events, and those not so inclined will have opportunities to attend active breakout sessions. National Catholic speaker and author, Jared Zimmerer, will frame the day’s work by talking about authentic masculinity through physical endeavors.


All men young or not so young, regardless of fitness level are welcome. Grandads, dads, and sons can all attend, since high-interest activities will be offered for everyone. Competitor and non-competitor tickets are available for $30.00 per person, which includes lunch and a social hour. You must be over 18 to take part in competition events.
