StrongKids Halloween 5!

October 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

After a year off, The SPOOKtacularly popular StrongKids Halloween returns for its FIFTH edition Saturday, October 23rd!!  The competition will be held from 1-3pm (may be slightly longer depending on registrations).

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 trophies 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.  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. Alternating Overhead Press & Medicine Ball Over Shoulder for Reps! – StrongKids will have one Overhead Press (again depending on age, this would be kettlebells or a light barbell), then a bigger medicine ball to lift from the ground and toss over their shoulder. Then back to the overhead press, and then back to medicine ball, etc… most reps wins!

4. Farmer’s Carry + Sled Push + Seated Arm Over Arm Sled Drag! – StrongKids will have a Farmer’s Carry for 30′ & back, set the weights down then push a sled 30′ & back, and finish by sitting down next to a rope and pulling a separate sled across the finish line… fastest time wins! (Younger kids will have slightly shorter distances).












Entry fee: $42 Early bird pricing (effective through Monday, September 27), then registration fee will change to $47! Last registration date is Wednesday, October 20th!
