Description

The 2019 Comox Valley Strength Festival is a one day event held on Saturday, April 27th , 2019, at the Valley View School baseball fields along Lerwick Ave., in Courtenay, BC. The event will host 3 marquee & premier strength sports: Strongman/Strongwoman & Highland Heavy Events and Courtney Crossfit Team Challenge!

Strongman/Strongwoman: Strongman/Strongwoman events host a series of strength challenges that vary from event from event, typically harkening strength challenges of the past. Five to six events will be held for 2019 CVSF, including likely events: truck pull, overhead log press, deadlift, super yoke, squat lift, & atlas stone loading. The event will be sanctioned under BC CAASA & Canadian CAASA as a Provincials qualifier & will be run by 2019 CVSF Co-Coordinator & BC CAASA Director Sean Hayes. As the season opener, the event is expected to draw several Nationals-level and even Worlds-level athletes across weight class & gender.

Highland Heavy Events: Highland Heavy Events are traditional Scottish strength events. Standard events include Braemar & open stone throws, heavy & light weights for distance, heavy & light hammer throws, weight of bar, sheaf toss, & audience favourite, the caber (pole) toss. The event will be run by 2019 CVSF Co-Coordinator & Highland Heavy Events athlete Adam Drummond. The event’s convenient timing 3-weeks prior to the Victoria Highland Games means it will be used by athletes from Novice to Pro as a season opener & tune-up.

Other Events & Attractions: While still being finalized, several other attractions are planned for the day to make it fun for all ages. Two adjacent playground areas and a bouncy castle will highlight a children’s play area. Both sports are planning to allow children an opportunity to see & feel the implements, even including an opportunity to try (children-sized) ones. For adults, a volunteer-run beer licensed beer gardens will be open to the public. A vendor area with vendors ranging a variety of wares will be open for shop
