The Railyard Games

How do you prove you will survive Panther Attacks? Register, Compete, and Win the Railyard Games! The Railyard Games is an event to test all levels of functional fitness.

The event is held at the historic Albuquerque Rail Yards right in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, and is open to all Albuquerque gyms, general fitness enthusiasts, and to gyms in neighboring states. It not only tests fitness and creates a competitive environment, but it brings the fitness community together in an epic display of fortitude and Zombie survival skills!


It is with a heavy heart that we have to make the following announcement.
Due circumstances beyond our control, we have to postpone the Railyard Games until 2020. We'd like to thank you all for your continued support and interest through out this difficult time, and we look forward to bringing you a world class event next year.


The moment you’ve all been waiting for

Hey guys!
First, we just want to thank every single person who came out to the Railyard Games, everyone who helped, and everyone who participated. This year was epic because of you!

Just a few things:
1. We will send out a short survey to competitors covering the weekend, so that we can continue improving. Look out for that in your email.
2. Please allow us and our photographers a few days before photos come out. They have thousands of pictures to work through, and we want you all to have the best quality we can provide.
3. If you missed out on any custom RYG Wear over the weekend, shoot us a message! We have hats, and shirts up for sale!

Thank you for the weekend!

We had a blast hanging out with our friends Red Door Brewing Company and Sandia CrossFit for the The Railyard Games this past weekend! Here’s another sweet look from Estevan Robles. 💪🏋️‍♂️
