The Granite Games is more than a competition; it is a global community that encourages all levels of athletes to achieve personal greatness.

For our team, the goal of the Granite Games is much more than putting on a world-class event. We view it as a chance to give back to our communities and strengthen their bond with fitness. Over the past 4 years, the Granite Games has given support to local and national non-profit organizations. Every year, we aim to support the growth of the fitness community both locally and nationally.

2013 – We partnered with Rogue Fitness, providing equipment to communities to improve their members’ fitness experience.

2014 – We  introduced a revenue sharing program that allowed gym owners, fitness brand owners and Community Leaders to reinvest profits back into their communities. Through this program, many gyms were able to improve their facilities, hire extra staff, and provide better quality service to their members.

2015 –  Staying true to our brand, we expanded our Community Giveback Program further still to include Fitness Education Scholarships to help advance health and wellness education worldwide.

2016 – A handful of gyms were outfitted with new Rogue equipment and one lucky community received $10,000 to revamp their facility.

2017 – We delivered prizes to communities based upon the athlete numbers each brought to the Granite Games, such as rowers, bikes, Nike training shoes and exclusive insight and training from Factory Forged.

2018 is upon us and we look forward to helping even more fitness affiliates and community leaders to achieve their goals and spread a healthy lifestyle in their own communities.




CEO, The Granite Games


National Hockey Center

The National Hockey Center is the first competition floor and primary entrance into the event.

Halenbeck Field House

Halenbeck Fieldhouse is our dual purpose arena that hosts our Vendor Expo as well as a 30 station competition floor.

Husky Stadium

New in 2016, we’re bringing back the Husky Stadium in 2017 as our final competition floor.

September 6 -9 – This year, the sixth installment of the Granite Games will play host to approximately 3,000 athletes from around the globe. In order to help athletes determine which division is best suited to their current skill level, we created the Online Qualifier. Athletes begin the Road to Minnesota with an invitation that is extended to everyone, regardless of experience or ability level.

Those who make the cut punch their ticket to the 2018 Granite Games Championship in September, where the campus of St Cloud State University will again play host to 4 days of world-class fitness in action.

Spectators will be treated to incredible feats of athleticism, a Vendor Expo to satisfy even the most avid fitness fan’s wish list, and not just one, not just two, not even three, but FOUR of the FIVE venues for the weekend’s events.
