THIS IS IT!! THE NATIONALS AT BODYPOWER ARE GO!!
In association with the 10 year anniversary of Bodypower, the BPU AND ABPU are running the qualifiers for the WPC and AWPC World Championships, the gateway to representing your country - at the biggest fitness Expo in the UK with over 120,000 people
going through the event and WATCHING YOU!
ONLY those who have qualified for National Championships are allowed to enter and will have received an invitation. The link for entry, which is through Bodypower, will be up shortly and you MUST have a current 2018 membership in order to enter.You will not be able to proceed with the entry system unless you do. You will also have to input where and when you qualified to stop people who shouldn't be there from getting in!
YOU will get free entry on the day you are lifting and the weigh ins take place a booth at the competitors entrance, not inside the show. In the entry form there will be a section for you to buy additional tickets for extra days and also tickets for supporters at a discounted price.
Please, any questions on tickets and prices, don't ask us as we don't have anything to do with it!! Direct those queries to BodyPower.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday: 11th: BPU & ABPU ALL MENS Masters, Juniors and Teens. ALL women Juniors and Teens (no, not women's masters)
Saturday 12th: BPU & ABPU ALL FEMALE Open and Masters. ALL MALES up to and including 82.5kg
Sunday 13th: BPU & ABPU ALL MALE OPEN 90kg and over
Start time 9AM all days. Athlete entry from 8AM, from what we know currently, handlers can enter at that time also.
Weigh in times: 24 hour weigh in for all days:
9AM to 11AM and 3PM to 4PM
On the day weigh in 7.30am to 8am (sorry we cant do any earlier but the venue isnt open earlier)
We are in a new area, literally double the size and running 2 platforms. We are also right beside the dedicated athletes toilets and also beside the athletes main entrance as well. The competition area will be facing onto a walkway so all spectators can look directly at you! Seating will be provided n the arena as well.
If you are driving - please remember on the busy days of the Saturday and Sunday: get there early if you are driving as the queues can be long.
Entry lists will go to Bodypower first and then be forwarded to us at 2 weekly intervals so any queries about whether your entry has been received will have to go to Bodypower.
We still need spotters and loaders, so if you can help, please get in touch and you will have entry for the day you are spotting and loading!
I think that's it for now!
Please share the enthusiasm, and remember to keep updated closer to the competition on possible changes/new exciting features.
