StrongKids Halloween 2023

October 21, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The SPOOKtacularly popular StrongKids Halloween returns for its SEVENTH edition Saturday, October 21st!  The competition will be held from 12:00-3:00pm (Finish time is an estimate depending on registrations and events).

Kids from all over will gather in Halloween costume at Viking Performance Training and celebrate… well, being a strong 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. Dawn of the Deadlift Medley! – StrongKids will have a series of increasingly challenging deadlifts (which could be Kettlebells, Barbells, Trap Hex Bars, etc)! When StrongKids get to the last deadlift, they will use their remaining time limit to get as many reps as possible!

2. Medicine Ball Loading Medley! – StrongKids will have a series of increasingly heavier medicine balls lined up to stack on boxes. The fastest time or heaviest medicine balls loaded wins!

3. Viking Ninja Obstacle Course! – One of the most popular parts of StrongKids classes has always been the obstacle courses, and in 2022 for the first time an obstacle course was part of the StrongKids Halloween event, and in 2023 it’s back BIGGER AND BETTER! Get ready for running, jumping, climbing, crawling, and more!! Fastest time wins!

4. Viking Farmer’s Carry + Sled Push! – This one’s strength and endurance, just like the Vikings had to have! StrongKids will have a Farmer’s Carry for 20-30′ & back, set the weights down then push a sled 20-30′ & back for the remainder of the time. The most total distance wins!


Entry fee: $47 Early bird pricing (effective through Sunday, October 8th), then registration fee will change to $55. Last day to register is Wednesday, October 18th!

* StrongKids registered in the September 23 StrongKids session compete for free! *

The address is 141 Greenbag Rd., Morgantown WV (the main Viking Performance building).

The competition begins at 12:00pm with going over rules and the events! Contact information – Jerry Handley: vikingperformancetraining@gmail.com
