There will be a 40 and over class this year!
I am going to send the link to friends of mine at the Clemson Weight club. Lots of young guns there who want to try strongman so maybe this is a good contest for them.
So I have some people interested, but they are worried about competing since they have Zero experience with any of those events. Are there going to be any group training days offered or do you know of any groups in the area who will be training for this?
DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO APRIL 9TH.
