the year we hold different competitons and charity events, these
range from the small in-house things to big British comps. We also
participate in a few monthly and quaterly leagues were you can compare
your results to lifters all over the country and the IAWA Postal League
which ranks you by team and as an individual lifter throughout
the whole year giving you scores and handicaps for age and weight which
is a fun way of getting more out of your training .
The Inman Mile is our main charity event held in May every year.
The person attempting this challenge is carrying 1.5
times their own body weight for the furthest distance in the
fastest time. The bar is taken from the stands on to the lifters back
(as if about to perform a squat ) and then carried unaided around a set
course until they can not go any further, then either replaced back on the rack or
caught by two spotters following. The referee follows directly
behind measuring and timing the attempt, at no point is the bar allowed
to be supported by any other person than the one lifting and no one is
allowed to support the lifter in anyway. The lifter can stop and take a drink. This is a real hardcore test of endurance and
25 lifters from all over the country made it to the stage
many records were broken and a good day was had by all that attended.
