Punk Rope Games IX

Day, time, and location to be determined

The Punk Rope Games have been held annually in New York City since 2009. A cross between the Olympics and Mardi Gras, the Games embody Punk Rope’s spirit and philosophy. They’re a celebration of community, fitness, music, and wackiness. The Games feature teams of 3 in costume competing in 10 events, ranging from the athletic to the slightly silly. People of all fitness levels and ages are welcome to participate and there’s no cost for spectators to attend.
