Children are allowed to enter with parental approval and those who identify as other genders are very welcome and will be accommodated on the day of the event (please inform the judges prior to the commencement of the event). The competition is to complete as many reps as possible without a break. The contest is free to enter and everyone gets a prize. The judges decision is final.

Every entrant will also be given free access to advice on training, diet and recovery. You can learn how to replace animal products from your diet and how to help make healthier choices throughout the month of February, by a team of experts over at www.veganbodybuilding.org
