2023 RPG Raise the Bar VII

Raw & Equipped

Deadlift Only, Wagon Wheel (13") Deadlift Only or BOTH

Saturday, December 16th, 2023

This year we're doing something different -  A portion of the meet proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in loving memory of Amy Drouillard-Adcock. Breast cancer is a beast, come lift some heavy weights to help people in their fight against it!


We are back at it with the Raise the Bar 7 Deadlift Only Meet! We are going throwback with it this year...deadlift only from the floor or from the wagon wheels!  The same ol' story applies; Unsanctioned, no singlets required, you can wear a costume, get as goofy as you want, or come ready to go in full meet gear - the choice is yours!  This is an awesome environment for a first time lifter, and has also proven to be fun for some of the local old-heads to come show out in front of the home crowd.  We will still have some awesome best lifter awards ready to go in honor of the seventh annual Raise the Bar Meet!  Let's party!  See you there!
