Scottish athletics owe their roots to the Highland warriors who would keep in shape between battles by competing amongst themselves with everyday implements. A stone, a blacksmith’s hammer, a tree trunk (caber) became tools for building strength for battle.
The McPherson Highland Games & IHGF All-American Amateur Highland Games Championship are proud to present:
Nine events (Eight for IHGF):
- Braemar Stone,
- Open Stone,
- Heavy Hammer,
- Light Hammer,
- Sheaf Toss (NO Sheaf for IHGF), and
- Standing WFH.
NO ENTRY DEADLINE: Show up, pay your money and throw!
Realize, though, festival shirts are First Come, First Serve. Every effort will be made to provide priority on requested shirts sizes to those athletes who pre-registered by 1st September.
Please send us an email or call and tell us you’re coming, though, so we can have enough shirts for all athletes.
