About RCF's Strongest Man and Woman

  • Mt. Rainier's Strongest Man began in 2006 as a way to combine a love for Strongman and a need for funding and awareness for a little known genetic condition called Fragile X Syndrome. Our son Casey has Fragile X, the most common cause of inherited mental retardation and the most common known cause of autism yet largely unheard of and drastically underfunded. We heard our call to action, paired with The Old Cannery, and MRSM was born. The contest has grown from 5 local competitors to 4 divisions of men and women, more than 40 competitors from 5 states, and has raised over $40,000 to date. In 2010, we added a CrossFit spin, saw a surge in interest and competitors, and knew we hit our mark with a fun, challenging event supported by our peers and the best people around- CrossFitters
