All entries are non-refundable. There are no exceptions.


ABOUT THE LADIES OF IRON: Each interested state will run a WOMEN ONLY event on the same date, May 6, 2023. Scoring will be done via LiftingCast. This will allow all competitors to compete against women all over the United States at the same time without being in the same place. These combined results will be entered into our lifting database as “United Ladies of Iron” to form, possibly, the largest women’s only powerlifting event!

In addition, each lifter will also compete against the lifters at their local event. Awards and placings will be given to those on location as well as the nation wide placings.

SPECTATOR & COACH PASSES: Admission for spectators is $12.50. Coach passes are $20 and allow access into the warm-up area with the lifters. Passes can be purchased ahead of time online via the link below. Tickets are non-refundable.

This meet can be used as a qualifier for any USA Powerlifting Nationals. There are no qualifying requirements to compete in this event. Any USA Powerlifting Member can compete in this event.
