The Hudson Valley Regional Open is open to youth, junior, senior, and master ages, and novice lifters.

2019 Hudson Valley Open – Registrations Closed!

We’re happy to report a spectacular showing for this inaugural competition.  Registrations are now closed.

Thank you for taking part in this historic competition – the first of many more!  We are fortunate to have many technical officials from local through international level.  We are looking to make this first competition a memorable and fun one.
This is a packed event so please look for your name in the start list with the official weigh in and lift times. Please note, a few lifters were moved up to an earlier session to accommodate the overall number of lifters.  We’re aiming to make things go as smoothly as possible.
Due to the large volume of expected lifters and supporters, we have secured additional parking about 200 meters up the road  – Herring Road is a private road and they are supporting this us by providing this access.  Please park there if necessary, just do not block the gravel or paved roads.
See you soon.
