Legend has it that the Husafell stone was originally crafted in Iceland over 200 years ago and used by an Icelandic pastor to help keep one of his stable doors open. The stone is still kept in Husafell, Iceland, at the site of Pastor Snorri Björnsson’s stables.
The challenge for this event is to carry the stone held high across the chest over a set distance whilst being timed. The original stone itself is a flat, somewhat triangular rock weighing 182kgs. However various competitions now have stones in different weights.
Our goal of running strongman meets now is to introduce a variety of strength based competitions to the younger generation and also to show the current fitness community the benefits (and fun!) of using strongman movements in their daily fitness regimen.
As an introductory, we will be running two events in the novice category for those who want to have a feel of what strongman events are! For only RM60 nett per athlete, you will get a limited edition T-Shirt and goodie bags with discount vouchers. Winners of these events will get a limited edition medal and cash vouchers! 🚩Registration link in our bio!
