Our goal for Strongest Badge VI is for it not to just be an event, but the ultimate armwrestling experience! Located inside Ballpark Village in St. Louis, MO right next to Busch Stadium, you won’t have to go far to get great food, cocktails, and a plethora of entertainment. Live! by Loews is a beautiful, upscale hotel and venue and we are honored to be partnered with them to bring you our best event to date.
Strongest Badge runs completely paperless, so to speed up registration at the event we urge competitors to fill out their waiver online in advance. This will not commit you to competition, although you do have the option to pre-register at a discounted rate. Those that do pre-register will also be allowed express entry to the scales during weigh-ins.
Early Weigh-Ins will be at the Venue Friday at 12pm until 1pm, and 6pm until 8pm
