What is the AFG? - The Anytime Fitness Games is a non-profit, competitive, team-based obstacle course race to be used as a fundraiser to help a non-profit organization within Caldwell County. There is no other purpose than simply promoting healthy, fun lifestyles and teamwork while giving back to our community. Anytime Fitness, Lenoir chooses a new organization every year based on specific criteria. More information about our supported organization can be found below.
What to Expect? - The course is approximately a 5K designed with some familiar obstacles and some entirely unique ones. Our obstacles range from strength and stamina to dexterity, communication, and mind-teasers that are combined in such a way to maximize teamwork, a challenging environment, and the most fun! We believe in teamwork as one of our core values and our course is designed in such a way that individuals cannot accomplish the entirety of the race without their teammates.
Are there Prizes? - Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams based on completion. Another Anytime Fitness value is that one good rep is better then 100 bad ones. Strength and speed are important but not when it comprises the integrity of the motion.
Who Can Participate? - The race is open to anyone age 12 and up. All fitness levels are welcome and modifications are encouraged for those appropriately who need them. Because the race is based on completion and the obstacles are based on more then just brute strength, the playing field is leveled.
Regular Individual tickets are $55
Anytime Fitness Member, Law Enforcement, Military, EMS Discount - $45
2018 featured our kickoff of the AFG. Gold Sponsorship from Chick-fil-A, Smith Crossroads and all other proceeds supported the Exceptional Children's Program of Caldwell County.
2019 brought new sponsors, new obstacles, and new team challenges to be completed by teams of 4. Gold Sponsorship from Blue Ridge Energy, LLC. Propane and Fuels and all other proceeds supported The Caldwell House - a Caldwell Organization to promote sober living.
2020 became 2021 due to COVID restrictions, but once we had it, Blue Ridge Energy LLC. was our top sponsor for the course - all proceeds went to the Robin's Nest to help abused children in Caldwell County.
SAVE the DATE - April 30, 2022!
