Weight Catergory - Open
Level - Intermediate (really dependent on interest)
Date - 18th November
Venue - The Piazza, Truro City Centre

Events (subject to change)

6 events to find the Strongest in the Duchy! (anyone can enter, no matter what region)

Event 1: Log Press 100kg 1 Point, 120kg 3 Points

The athlete will have 75 seconds to lift a metal log weighing 100kg or 120kg from the floor and press it over head. They must wait for a good lift signal from the referee. The athelete must then return the log to the ground at this point he will be able to attempt another lift. One repetition with the 100kg log will equal 1 point, and one repetition with the 120kg log will equal 3 points. The highest number of points from an athlete wins the event.

Event 2: Car/Van Deadlift

This event has a frame under a Car/Van with handles enabling the athelete to lift the van off the floor. When the athelete lifts the van to lockout where he is stood up straight he will be given a good lift signal. The athelete must then lower the van to the floor where he may attempt another lift. Most repititions in 75 seconds wins the event.

Event 3: Cornish Stone carry 135kg

This is a stone resembling a tombstone style shape with a cornish flag painted on it. The athelete will have to pick the stone off the floor and carry it as far as possible, after 20m the athelete will have to turn and proceed back. This event has no time limit. If the stone is dropped then the event is over and the distance will be measured. The furthest distance carried wins the event.

Event 4: Medley

In this event the athelete will have to carry a super yoke which will be resting on there shoulders, weighing 260kg. Once this has been carried 20m, they will then have to pick up a an implement called a farmers walk weighing 110kg in each hand and carry those 20m. Finally the athelete will then have to drag a sled with 200kg of weight 20m. A time limit of 75 seconds will be given, the fastest time to complete the event wins. If the event is not completed a distance will be measured.(This event could be changed to a lorry pull, if we have space to do so).

Event 5: Block Press

This event consists of big steel blocks weighing 80-90-100-110-120kg. Each athelete will start off by lifting the 80kg block and pressing it overhead, when given the good lift signal from the referee they will then proceeed onto the next one. If all blocks are lifted a time will be given for complettion of the event. If the athelete is unable to complete all the blocks a time will be given for how long it took them to lift the heaviest one.

Event 6: Final event

The final event will be keg loading. A range of keg's filled with different materials will be carried and loaded onto a platform, the weights ranging from 80kg-130kg. The lightest keg will be further away from the platform, and as the kegs get heavier they will be closer to the platform. The quickest time to load all of the kegs wins. If the athelete is unable to load all of the kegs a time will be given for the heaviest keg loaded.

Weights -TBC (again really dependant on the level of interest)

15 entry for Athletes, Spectators free! Prizes for top 3, t-shirts for all.

Just like to add, a great location for a family weekend, and an awesome location for a competition as its in the center of a city, hope to get lots of interest from passers by as there is a large footfall as big named shops cover the Piazza.

All the weights are TBC at the moment. When we get a final athletes list in we can then decide what the final weights will be to the standard we get.

That's okay. There isn't many people training Strongman in deepest darkest Cornwall so we need to appeal to the majority of strength levels.

Yeah we are looking a the weights again when we have had a better idea of the standard of athletes generally Cornwall and the south west don't have the same base as most of the rest of the country, I made these events to try and have a balance between static strength, conditioning and speed.
