Race Roster

The Western Canadian Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships will take place at Evolve Strength North in Edmonton. Edmonton has not hosted a Western Canadian Championship for over 5 years and we are excited to bring it back. Evolve is a massive facility which will allow our athletes the most comprehensive warm-up room and spacious competition area including over 8 IPF approved racks 20+ competition bars and thousands of kilos. 

Competing at a CPU Regional event is a requirement for those who have not yet stepped on the National stage. This event requires a Regional Total Standard to compete, which can be found here: http://powerlifting.ca/qual_totals.html 

All other requirements to compete, if any, should be clarified by your Provincial powerlifting body - SPA, BCPA, APU, MPA.

The championship will crown who the strongest men and women are in Western Canada. Last year, the event had over 180 athletes competing. This year, we can expect even more!
