Part of the Fall Festival Weekend. Contestants must carry their "wife" through a series of obstacles. Obstacles can include running through water, sand, grass, around sharp curves and over log hurdles. As host of this prestigious event for over a decade we've see teams from across the United States and Canada compete head-to-head for fame, fortune and a chance to compete at the World Championships in Finland. Fun for competitors and thousands of spectators alike, the Wife Carrying Championships receive international media attention each year.
