Event Details

The Victoria Strength Challenge is a five event strongman competition held on the Monday during the Victoria Highland Games weekend.  The Victoria Strength Challenge is sanctioned by CAASA (Canadian Alliance of Amateur Strength Athletes) and will be a regional qualifier where athletes can gain points to the BC championships.  All competing members should be current CAASA members.  

EVENT #1- The Victoria Stone throw, athletes will throw a heavy stone (Men=50lbs, Women=26lbs) for distance.  Each athlete will get three throws and best distance counts.  Athletes will get 10' run up to the throwing trig.  

Events #2- Keg for Height, athletes will attempt to throw a standard beer keg over a bar, athlete will get 45 seconds at each height and moves on if he successfully clears the bar.  

Event #3-  Farmers Walk, athletes will attempt to walk with the farmers walk implements covering 50' with the most weight possible, the weight will start at your classes perscribed amount and each round we will add weight with the successful athletes moving on.  The winner is the athlete that completes the course with the most weight.    

Event #4- Log Press, athletes will attempt to lift the log from the ground to the overhead position as many times as they can within the allotted time, winner is the athlete that achieves the most reps.

Event #5- Strength Medley, a timed event where athletes will attempt to carry, pull and load four different objects, winner is the athlete that completes all objects in the shortest time period.  

 


Competition will start sharply at 10am, weigh ins will happen the morning of the competition.  All CAASA weight classes are offered but there must be at least 3 athletes in your division for it to be contested, if not you will be merged into the nearest appropriate class.  Lunch will be provided for all athletes competing on the day.  Water and energy drinks should also be provided.   

REGISTRATION CUT OFF WILL BE APRIL 15/19 IN ORDER TO GIVE US ENOUGH TIME TO ARRANGE TSHIRTS, TROPHIES, ETC.

THERE MUST BE AT LEAST THREE ATHLETES REGISTERED IN A CLASS BY APRIL 15/19 IN ORDER FOR US TO CONTEST THAT CLASS, AFTER THAT DATE WE WILL MERGE CLASSES THAT DON'T MEET THAT REQUIREMENT AND CANNOT REOPEN CLASSES AFTER THAT DATE. 

Registrations may be excepted on a case by case scenario after that date but will not be guaranteed a tshirt.  Sorry but refunds will not be possible after the cut off date.
