Competitors can sign up for both events together to receive a discount, AND… total points will be calculated from both events at Maidens of Fury to crown a “Grand Maiden Valkyrie Queen” for Open & Masters Divisions! (and possibly Teens or even individual weight classes!).  The “Grand Maiden Valkyrie Queen” will receive a special award AND… that’s not all… free entries to both of the next year’s Maidens events!

Farmer’s Carry Viking Ship Forward Drag!

  • 60sec time limit to cover the course
  • Two forms of moving weight at the SAME TIME. Athlete will begin between farmer’s implements with a harness around their shoulders attached to our Viking Ship (possibly Prowler sled for lighter/novice competitors). On the command athlete picks up the farmer’s and starts carrying, dragging the Ship/sled behind! Course will be 40ft long.
  • Oh, did we mention that weather permitting the event will be on a slight incline? So yes, there’s that.
  • Everyone will use the same harness. Please do not pester me about using your own harness. I won’t budge. In 9 years, probably 14 plus contests, and countless training sessions with 110 pound ladies all the way up to 400+lb men, no one has ever “come out” of the harness in mid-pull. The only way to accomplish that would be to literally stop pulling and move backward to create slack while letting your arms hang down to the side and slumping your shoulders. If you do that, you didn’t want to win anyway.
  • Fastest time wins.

Max Mouser Block Over Bar    *eligible for WV state records*

  • Three attempts to make the biggest lift possible!
  • 30 sec to get the Block over a 44in bar. Block may start vertical or horizontal. Athlete starts with hands off.
  • Each athlete may lift or pass on any given weight. Once you miss a weight, you are “out” and will be credited with your highest successful attempt. The athlete is responsible for maintaining his/her position in the rotation; failure to do so may result in disqualification from the event.
  • In the event of a tie, the athlete that took fewer attempts to reach the weight will be credited with the higher placing. If that doesn’t work, we go to higher opener. If that doesn’t work, we got to higher second attempt. If that doesn’t work… well then you just tie and split points!
  • Elbow sleeves & knee sleeves (buckling mechanisms and straps must not be tightened), a single belt, and wrist wraps are legal. Belt buckle to back/side
  • If the Block has been loaded over the bar and time expires as the Block is falling, the lift will still count.
  • Blocks will increase in 10 or 20 pound increments (see chart). Classes using the Mini-Block will switch to the big block once they have maxed out the capacity of the Mini.


Growing Yoke

  • Athlete will have 60sec to complete as many “laps” as possible with the ever increasing yoke
  • Course will be 25ft
  • Once the front of the implement crosses the line, the athlete will set the yoke down and turn around to head off the other direction with it. However, during the transition, our staff will VERY quickly toss more weight on the yoke! Thus each lap is heavier than the last! ***see chart for weight and how much it goes up each time***
  • Split times will be taken as each lap is finished. Those who complete the same number of laps will be placed based on the faster time to do so.
  • Distance will NOT be measured. You will only get credit for fully completed laps.
  • Unlimited drops but please don’t hurt yourself.
  • Same equipment rules as everything else lol


Log Clean and Press for Reps

  • 60sec time limit
  • From ground to overhead, max reps! Every rep must have elbows locked out, feet in a “square” stance, and wait for the judge’s down command! You may just any technique (except placing the log on your head… seriously) to press the log, such as a split jerk, but if you do feet must come back together to a square stance during lockout before the down command.
  • The log must fully touch the floor/tire it’s on after every rep!
  • Light, medium, and heavy options for each class!
  • 8″ and 10″ logs will be used – heaviest log in each class will be a “real” wooden log!
  • Choose your Log, clean and press for reps. Most reps wins, heavier automatically beats lighter
  • Once you choose your Log, you are stuck with it til death do you part. No switching after you begin.


General Rules/Usual Viking Stuff

  • Podium place ties will be determined by tiebreaker!
  • Sportsmanship is expected and required. This is the greatest sport in the world, let’s keep it that way.
  • This is a drug free contest. If you are juiced feel free to come cheer on your buddies but please do not bother to sign up. Don’t be surprised if I show up with a duffel bag full of testing kits!
  • If you have a question, please ask! I would rather take a minute to clarify something than to see someone have a poor showing due to a misunderstanding.
  • Registrations are non-refundable due to limited spots!
