AUSTIN, Texas – Rogue Fitness has announced the third annual Rogue Invitational will take place at Dell Diamond, a 12,000-seat outdoor stadium located in the Austin, Texas area. The event will include three days of competition from October 29 to 31, 2021.
The Rogue Invitational is an elite strength and fitness showcase that features the fittest and strongest athletes in the strength world. Additionally, spectators will be able to partake in the festival-like atmosphere including unique food and beverage, local beer, a vendor village, and more.
Past winners have included the reigning Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth, Mat Fraser (2019) and Tia-Clair Toomey (2019 and 2020). This competition will be held in partnership with CrossFit.
The first annual Strongman competition will be making its debut this year, as 10 of the world’s top Strongman competitors will take on a unique slate of challenges. These challenges were devised and created by the same team behind the Wheel of Pain and the Elephant Deadlift Bar, amongst many others.
For even more feats of strength, the ‘Rogue Record Breakers’ (RBB) will be back throughout the weekend, showcasing amazing accomplishments across multiple strength disciplines. Previous RRB events include the Monster Bell Press, the Elephant Bar Deadlift, and the Steinborn Squat.
Other facets, including powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting, are also under consideration for inclusion in 2021 with more updates to come as they develop.
“The Austin Sports Commission is thrilled to partner with the Rogue Fitness Invitational,” said Drew Hays, director of the Austin Sports Commission. “We can’t wait to welcome the top CrossFit and Strongman athletes in the world to our city and showcase our community as a top fitness destination.”
Additionally, the Rogue Invitational is looking for volunteers to help bring this event to life. Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to register at roguefitness.com/invitational. Information on tickets, hotel partners, sponsors, and more can also be found on the website as well.
To ensure the safety of all athletes, organizers, and spectators, all necessary COVID-19 considerations and contingency plans will be made and the event’s format will follow established Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
