April 15, 2017

Last year, over 60 women from all over the country came to Santa Cruz to compete in the inaugural California’s Strongest Woman competition. Over $5,000 in prize money was raised between sponsors and athlete donations and more importantly a very clear message resounded through all strength sports:


Now in its second year, we’re sending out the call to all corners of the country to beckon the strongest women back to Santa Cruz Strength. The support of any strong community comes from its members first and this year we are continuing the tradition of taking $10 from each entry fee and putting it into the prize money pot to be awarded to the top 3 winners of each Open division.

This is a Strongman Corporation Level 1 event and qualifier for Nationals 2017 to be held in Las Vegas.

Novice division is for competitors who have competed in 1 or fewer competitions

Events and weights are below and the entry form is at the bottom of the page.

Weigh Ins are Friday, April 14th from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and Saturday 8:00 – 8:45 a.m.

Rules meeting starts at 8:45 and contest starts at 9:00.
