You might've carried your wife across the threshold, but it's time to take it up a notch. The North American Wife Carrying Championship tasks couples with crossing a 278-yard obstacle course--over hurdles, through a watery mud pit, and up an unsteady sand hill--all for the hopes of winning the wife's weight in beer and five times her weight in cash.
The 20th annual event will take place on Saturday, October 12, during Sunday River Resort's annual Fall Festival Weekend. This is a classic event that you won't want to miss, whether you're carrying, being carried, or watching the madness unfold.
