Kong Fest is back! What started as a small, local event put on by August Schmidt and the team at East Valley CrossFit has grown to become Arizona’s marquee functional fitness event. Kong Fest is the heavy hitter’s event based around the classic CrossFit workout “King Kong”. This year we expand registration to a third scaled division called Spider Monkey. This competition has historically been inclusive of CrossFit, Strongman, Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, and Gymnastics elements, this year will be no different.

The King/Queen Kong Division is for the advanced to elite athlete.

Prizes: $500 cash prize + 365 lbs Hi Temp Bumper Plate Set and more will go to King Kong & Queen Kong Division Champions

Angry Chimp Division is for the upper intermediate to advanced athlete
