We’re always looking for athletic adventures to support at Get Jerky – so it’s a pleasure that we’ll be supplying jerky at the IAWA weightlifting championships on the weekend of September 25th, at one of our most loyal stockists, the lovely Ked’s Gym in Port Talbot!

The International All-Round Weightlifting Association has been running since 1987 in the UK, and every year hold competitions in Men’s, Women’s & disability championships with deadlifts, seated lifts and old school all part of the mix! And we can’t wait to be supporting this year’s Welsh Open Championships, which kick off on 25th & 26th September!

The all ages Ked’s Gym goes through a heap of protein packed Get Jerky bags every month, so we’re delighted to be providing free jerky for this year’s championships, to help keep competitors replenishing energy & replacing all that muscle being tested during the lifts!

This year, 11 lifters are going head to head to test their mettle in the Welsh Open on the 25th, and then the 1st ever British Disability Championships will take place, with 8 competitors lifting on 26th September.

Taking place at Michna St Community Centre, the competition will feature powerlifters, weightlifters, to strongmen and even newbies – a perfect competition for beginners and experienced lifters.

IAWA members can take part by getting in touch with Ked’s Gym, entry £15.
