Event 1 - The Iron Cross
Competitors are to start behind the competitor start line. On the judges call, the competitor must pick up the iron cross from behind the event start line, and then carry it for the maximum amount of distance they can carry it along the 10m track. The tombstone must be carried in front of the body. Competitors must wait until they receive a ‘yes’ call at the end after both feet have crossed the line, and after they have received this they may turn around and continue the process back to the start line for the remaining time. The total time for the event is a maximum of 45 seconds. Drops are allowed, but resets can only be done by the competitor. No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn, as well as knee/elbow sleeves, and ‘warm’ pants – no equipment apart from this shall be worn. The event will be won by carrying the tombstone the greatest distance.

Event 2 - Pursuit Physiotherapy Press Party
At the start call, competitors will attempt to press the 3 implements in order within 60 seconds – two dumbbells, an axle and and finally a log. Any method may be used to get the implement from the ground to the overhead and locked out position. Once the judge is satisfied that the competitors have achieved a successful lockout (implement controlled overhead, elbows/knees/hips locked out, head ‘through’ and feet together), the competitor will receive a ‘Down’ call. On the down call, the competitor must lower the implement under control back to the ground – any throwing or dropping of the implement will result in the competitor having to retake that lift again.
This event will be scored those who are fastest to complete the final implement, followed by successive split times.
Competitors may wear a maximum of 2 belts; one hard and one soft. These may be layered, but cannot be stacked up the torso. Knee and elbow sleeves may be worn, as well as wrist wraps. Chalk is the only substance that may be applied to the body.

Event 3 - Dreadnought Strength Equipment Sled Slaughter
Seated in the designated area with their hands on the rope, on the judges start call competitors may start pulling the sled towards themselves in an arm-over-arm manner. Once competitors have pulled the sled over the 20m finish line and received a judges call, the competitor will get up, get their hands on the handle which will be sitting on the sled and begin dragging the sled backwards for the return 20m run. Once the sled has crossed the mark and the competitor has received a ‘Stop’ call, the time will be stopped for the event. A maximum event time of 60 seconds is allowed. If the competitor doesn’t finish the course in that time frame, they will be given a split time for the fastest stage they completed – partial drags will not have distance measured! One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn, as well as knee/elbow sleeves, and ‘warm’ pants – no equipment apart from this shall be worn. Competitors will be scored off the fastest time for completion of the course, followed by the fastest split time for the arm over arm drag.
Exact Weights TBA
Event 4 - Thiccc Farmers
Starting at the minimum weight for the event for their class, competitors may jump in/out of a rising weight implement as they wish – competitors may sit out weights until they decide to jump in again, and are only elimited if they are unsuccessful with an attempt. If a competitor misses their chance to attempt a weight before the weight increases, they will not have a chance to do a reduced weight. Once a competitor has elected to attempt a weight, they must stand between the farmers handles, hold on and stand up with them. Once a competitor has made it to a locked out position, with their knees/hips locked and their shoulders neutral, they will receive a down call. Upon receiving a down call, competitors must lower the implements to the ground under control – if implements are dropped on the way to the ground, this attempt will not be counted! If competitors are successful, they will return to the continuing athlete section, however if they are eliminated the competitors must return to the competition staging area. Only one attempt per weight may be taken, and once a genuine attempt has been made to lift the implements, athletes will be eliminated if they are unsuccessful.
No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn – no other equipment can be worn.
All Women – Minimum Weight of 25kg
All Men – Minimum Weight of 50kg
Event 5 - Matthew Wilson Transport Deadlift Domination
At the judge start call, competitors will attempt to lift the 3 implements in order within 60 seconds – an axle, farmers walk handles and finally a deadlift bar. Strapping in must be done in a competitors own time. Once the judge is satisfied that the competitors have achieved a successful lockout (competitor standing ‘tall’, with their knees/hips locked and shoulders ‘neutral’), the competitor will receive a ‘Down’ call. On the down call, the competitor must lower the implement under control back to the ground – any throwing or dropping of the implement will result in the competitor having to retake that lift again. Once successful, the competitor may move on to the next implement and repeat the process. If a competitor is successful with the final implement, they may continue to rep out until their time has lapsed.
This event will be scored with repetitions at the final implement weighted highest, followed by split times for each successive implement.
Competitors may wear a maximum of 2 belts; one hard and one soft. These may be layered, but cannot be stacked up the torso. Knee and elbow sleeves may be worn. Straps may be worn, with both figure 8 and figure 6 straps allowed. Chalk is the only substance that may be applied to the body.
