More than 260 amateur Strongmen and Strongwomen from all over North America will be coming to the Linq in Las Vegas on November 10th & 11th, competing in 5 events that will test their strength and skill. 

I believe this to be the largest Strongman Corporation Nationals to date, with 265 competitors across 6 divisions and 13 weight classes. The top 20% in each weight class will earn invites to the Arnold Amateur World Championships in March, the largest fitness expo in the world. There are also 9 pro cards up for grabs. 

The top 3 overall in the men’s Middleweight and Heavyweight division get their pro card; along with the overall winner the Women’s Lightweight, Middleweight, and heavyweight divisions. Here's the full start list by division.
