Don’t let the name fool you.
The 10th-annual Night of the Living Dead professional deadlift competition will be held at Elizabethton High School on Saturday and will feature more delights, than frights, for on-goers inside John Treadway Gymnasium.
Professional lifters from across the globe will set up in Carter County, but another local legend will be gracing the stage, according to meet director Alex Campbell.
“We have some of the best athletes come out and it can serve as inspiration,” Campbell explained. “With this being our tenth annual event, we wanted to make it special and make it about Josh Wandell.”
