Strongman Competition

Written by ironcountylodging on July 29, 2014

Strongman Competition This Weekend! Who are the strongest dudes (and dudettes) in the U.P.? Find out this Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Nylund Food Center here, at the annual U.P. Strongman Contest. It starts at noon, and the public is invited to come over and watch the fun. The event is a fundraiser for the Forest Park High School football program, and admission is $3. Spectators will be seated up close to the action, and concessions stands will be available. This is the second year the Strongman event has been held at Nylund’s and also the second time it will be held the week before Fungus Fest events. Competition will be held in five divisions: four for men (featherweight, up to 175 pounds; lightweight, 175 to 200; middleweight, 200 to 230, and heavyweight, over 230) and an open women’s division. They will compete in five events: the farmer’s carry (heavy cylinders and boulders), overhead lifts (axels and logs), stone and rock lift; tire flips and sandbag toss; and a medley event (grip roller, Conan wheel and tire chains). As the competitors get bigger, the objects they lift, haul or throw get bigger and heavier. Even during an event, they typically have to complete several tasks, each a bigger/heavier challenge than the one before. It’s a daylong test of strength and endurance. Spectators will have a fun time guessing who’s going to come out on top. The competitors have a great time, too, going head to head and rooting each other on. The top three overall in each class win trophies. All competitors win T-shirts. A separate women’s bench press contest is also held. There is still time to enter. Contact Jim Butler (906-875-4266), Bill Santilli (906-875-6020) or Lee Nylund (906-875-4296). Competitors must be 16 or older—minors need parental consent. The entry fee for contestants is $20 until the day of the event—it’s $25 at the gate
