It’s no secret that married couples face a lot of hurdles, but not like the contestants in the North American Wife Carrying Championship.
As the event title implies, a man has to carry his beloved wife over a threshold of an obstacle course featuring log hurdles, sand traps, water hazards and mud. Lots of mud!
The couples that enter do not have to be married but each team has to have a male and female member over the age of 21.
The winning couple gets fame, glory and the woman’s weight in beer and an amount of cash equal to five times her weight.
