Are you ready for the most challenging physical test ever? The Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has just announced registration for the Qatar’s Strongest Man 2018 competition open.

Anyone can register and tryout, but only the eight strongest and most enduring men will qualify to the actual competition on the 7th of December.

While there were two categories in prior years, one for locals and one for expats, both categories have been replaced with only one this year, which is free to enter for all residents in Qatar.

The terms and conditions are easy: you need to be over 18 years of age, a back belt, protection wraps and sleeves. There’s also a QAR100 registration fee.

Last year, the open categories competition was won by the Kenyan champion Cristopher Oketch, while newcomer Abdulaziz Al Kuwari was named the country’s strongest man.

The tryouts, which will be held between the weekends of November 16 to 17 and November 23 to 24, include a series of strength challenges, such as lifting cars, pulling trucks and rolling over giant rubber tires.

Those who are lucky (strong) enough to make it to the main competition will have to face-off at even tougher challenges, like 200kg deadlifts, a 20m farmer’s walk while carrying 120kg in each hand, and a 160kg tire flip.

The main event will be held at Aspire Park on the 7th of December, with free entry to all attendees.
