- On the count of 3,2,1 GO Athletes will have 2 mins to try and lift all the provided stones on top of the pedastals.  Stone weights will start lighter and increase in weight after each successive lift.  Pedestals will start taller and gradually become shorter as the Athlete reaches heavier stones.  If the Athlete is unable to lift all of the stones on to the peds, time will be recorded for the heaviest stone they successfully lifted.

Score: Time to complete all or as many lifts as possible.

Event # 4- Husafell Stone Carry (for max distance)

This is a classic event named after a famous stone in Husafell Iceland.  The original stone weighs over 400 LBS!  Don't worry ours won't be quite that heavy!

On the count of 3,2,1 go Athletes will have 2 mins to pick up the stone and walk with it for max distance.  Athletes will walk around 2 distant markers, one at each end.  As soon as the Athlete drops the stone the event is over and the max distance they traveled will be recorded.  5 FT markers will be set, and athletes must pass a marker for that distance to count.  Meaning if the athlete is halfway between 2 distant markers and drops the stone, only the distant to most recently past marker will count.

Event # 5 - Dead-lift ladder.

An assortment of barbells will be loaded starting from lightest to heaviest.  On 3,2,1 GO Athletes will have 30 seconds at each weight to make a successful lift.  Athletes can make as many attempts as possible in the 30 second time span.  Only successful lifts under the cap will count.  Athletes must stand all the way up, legs and hips must be fully extended with the shoulders behind the bar.  Dropping the bar is permitted only after the judge has waived it off as a good lift.

Switch-grip or overhand grip permitted, lifting straps are not permitted.
