StrongKids Halloween 2022

October 22, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm


The SPOOKtacularly popular StrongKids Halloween returns for its SIXTH edition Saturday, October 22nd!  The competition will be held from 12:30-2:30pm (may be slightly longer depending on registrations and events).

Kids from all over West Virginia and neighboring states will gather (in Halloween costume!) at Viking Performance Training and celebrate… well, being a kid!

Bring the kids for a great time competing, showing and testing their true strength… and since it’s Halloween, in costume! Kids being strong, being active, and most importantly- having a great time. Viking and Halloween-themed prizes and medals for 1st through 3rd, as well as Halloween treats and contest shirts for everyone who signs up at least a week before the competition*!

  • We will order several extra shirts for kids who sign up all the way to the contest date, but in order to help us get a more accurate order count please sign up in advance!

Age groups are as follows… 2-3, 4-5 years, 6-7 years, 8-9 years, 10-11 years, 12 years.  Events and challenges will be increasingly scaled to make them truly age appropriate for the StrongKids!!!

We will be competing in 4 kid-friendly strongman events, with a bit of a Halloween flair!


1. Deadlift Medley! – StrongKids will have a series of increasingly challenging deadlifts (which could be Kettlebells, Barbells, Trap Hex Bars, etc) for speed! Who will finish the medley, and who will be fastest?!

2. Medicine Ball Carry & Load! – StrongKids will be between 2 boxes, spaced 18′ apart. They will need to pick up increasingly challenging medicine balls and carry them 18′ across to the opposite box. Fastest time or heaviest carry wins!

3. Viking Ninja Obstacle Course! – One of the most popular parts of StrongKids classes has always been the obstacle courses… and now for the first time, an obstacle course will be part of the StrongKids Halloween event! We can’t say too much… but get ready for running, jumping, climbing, crawling, and more!! Fastest time wins!

4. Viking Sled/Ship Drag + Farmer’s Carry + Sled Push! – StrongKids will start with a belt or harness attached to a sled (or wooden Viking Ship!) and have to run forward 20-30′ to move on! Then StrongKids will have a Farmer’s Carry for 20-30′ & back, set the weights down then push a sled 20-30′ for the finish! Fastest time wins! (Younger kids will have the shorter distances).
