what we're all about

The NCC is a 3 day event highlighting different aspects of fitness culture and lifestyle in the Northern California region.  

OVER $50,000 in Prizes
Headlined by the largest scale fitness event on the west coast, this event seeks to fill the void left by the departure of the CF Games Regional qualification system.  It will offer participants of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to compete alongside elite competitors while testing themselves across a broad range of challenges. 

Divisions:  Elite, RX, Scaled, Team, Masters. 

Located in West Sacramento’s famed River Walk Park, the NCC takes place in the shadow of the downtown skyline and just a 5 minute walk from the cobblestoned streets of Old Sacramento.  This district boasts riverfront dining, plenty of places to grab a drink, and family friendly shops and museums that pay homage to Sacramento’s rich Gold Rush history.
