Strongman Event 9.5.15

The Pit Barbell Club hosted a Street Strongman Event on 9.5.15 – Saturday of labor day weekend.  We had many inquiries about this event in the month before, but we had only 8 contestants, possibly due to the heat and the holiday weekend.   It turned out to be a nice size meet for all the scheduled events.   It was 94 degrees and very humid.  All would agree it was a great FIRST strongman event!

We had sponsors for this event – and we thank them very much.

Neuhoff Auto Sales (

Thanks to these sponsors we were able

to purchase these awesome trophies:




The order of events was perfect:  First was the tire flip – 250′ was the distance and it was timed.  Next was the sled push – it was a timed event.  Third was the deadlift – it was inside our strongman arena and was timed for 2 minutes.  The log press was inside and timed for 2 minutes.  The last item was the farmers walk and it was down and back for time.

Eric Wedding 0-170# – 1st place

Kevin Mossberger 171-210# – 1st place

Nick DeWig 211-260# – 1st place

Ben DeWig 260+# – 1st Place

Chris Allgood – 260+# – 2nd Place

Adam Grove – 260+# – 3rd Place

Jason Habermel – 260+# = 4th Place

Chris Allgood was injured during the last event, the farmers walk – Chris completely tore his patella tendon, and had to be taken to the emergency room, and later in the week had surgery.

Also, last but not least – we thank our helpers for the day which included Jesse, Dan, Rick, Hanz, the whole Tyring family and our photographer Bud Downen.  We could not do these events without the people who are willing to volunteer – please take the time to thank them next time you see them.
