Strongwoman Event Schedule 

The Strongwoman’s schedule is pretty similar to that of the Strongman, with the only difference being the events. On March 1st, we will see some of the strongest women in the world battle it out on the Elephant Bar Deadlift and the Timber Carry (like the men), but on the second day, they will participate in Jack Stone Carry, Monster Dumbell and Stone Medley, a slight difference compared to the challenges for the men.

When it comes to famous names, you can expect to see Rebecca Roberts, who was crowned World’s Strongest Woman last year, as well as the 2022 winner Olga Liashchuk.

In addition to the two main events, fans will also be able to enjoy additional activities such as the Rogue Record Breakers and the Iron Game Tailgate. And for those who will be at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, Rogue will be hosting a showroom event, as well as a garage sale.
