Re: Beginner friendly strongman contest in NC

I would love to do this since it's beginner friendly but sadly Im in PA. I'm guessing you guys are based in NC only and wont have other events going on in different states?

This is a grassroots level beginner strongman contest, there aren't many like this I'm aware of. I hope as the sport grows there will be more like this.
