The competition will be held outdoors at the Castle Bridge Event Center grounds.  The meet will include a replica Husafell stone carry path (dirt) and all other events will be held on horse stall mats placed over ground.  Every attempt will be made to level the ground, but expect OUTDOOR conditions.  In the event of rain we will move under a covered open air structure and all events will be held on concrete flooring.

 

Viking attire is not required, but is highly encouraged.   However, any attire, language, etc. related to white supremacy will not be tolerated and will result in your immediate expulsion from the event with no refund.

The starting weight for men is 95#.and the weight will increase by 10# each round up to 165# then 5# increments thereafter. The athlete may skip weight increments.

2. Overhead Press Medley (Block – Axle – Log)

The athlete will have 60 seconds to press all three implements. The athlete must press the implements in order. Once the athlete reaches the log they will clean and press it away for reps to finish off the minute. 

Women will use a 10” log and Men will use a 12” log. Novice Women and Open Women (u140) will press a keg instead of a block.

3. Replica Husafell Carry

Do you have what it takes to be fullsterker? 

The athlete will have 60 seconds to carry the Husafell stone of their choice as far as they can. Once the stone has been lifted the athlete cannot choose a lighter or heavier stone. Once the stone is dropped the distance will be marked. The event will be scored using a point multiplier.

Example: Each stone is assigned a multiplier. Your distance will be multiplied by the multiplier assigned to the weight of the stone for your final event score.  If the athlete carries the 210# stone for 30 feet, they will be credited a score of 45 (30 x 1.5 = 45)

100# = x1

150# = x1.25

210# = x1.5

310# = x3

409# = x4

NOTE: All belt buckles must be to the side or back of the competitor to protect the stones.

If the athlete prematurely jumps the down command the rep will not be rewarded to the athlete. If the athlete is using straps the hand must be wrapped around the bar. No fingertip deadlifts allowed. Shins must be covered for the event for hygiene purposes.
