Hey everyone! Rainier CrossFit is throwing our hat into the Strongman Contest arena. Here is the first bit of information we put out. It is in the "News" section at www.ironmind.com . If you know anyone that is interested send them our way. We are also looking for sponsors and volunteers if you know anyone in our neck of the woods that may like to help out.

Mt. Rainier's Strongest Man, to benefit the Fragile X Research Foundation, will be held August 5th, at The Old Cannery in Sumner WA. Check-in and weigh-ins will begin at 9am with the first event to begin at 10:30.

The events, in order, are:
1. Tire Flip, 100 foot course, 90 second maximum time limit
2. Overhead Keg Press, for reps, 90 second time limit.
3. Double decker bus pull, 100 foot course, 90 second time limit
4. Farmers walk, 200 foot course, one turn, for distance or fastest time, 90 seconds.
5. Medley, including granite ball loading into or onto what, TBD.

This event is open to anyone, no federation membership is required. The entry fee is $50. Weight classes will be under 200 pounds and 201+ pounds. Trophies for top 3 places in each weight class will be awarded. A percentage of the particiapnts will be drug tested.

There will also be an open novice division for people who wish to try the events or play with the implements, with a trophy being awarded for best effort. The entry fee for the novice group will be $35 and this group will start at the end of the competitive weight classes, approximately 4:00pm.

Information and registration will be available (soon!) at www.rainiercrossfit.com. Our phone number is 253-686-9994 and Kurtis will be happy to answer any questions.

The event will benefit Fragile X research through www.fraxa.org, the Fragile X research foundation. Fragile X is the most common inherited cause of mental impairment. It is also the most common known cause of autism. It affects 1 in 4000 men and 1 in 6000 women although the numbers are sure to be higher as Fragile X is largely unknown and misdiagnosed. It also affects one very important person in our lives, our son Casey.
