For 18 years, Sunday River has been hosting the North American Wife Carrying Championship. It's a strange competition with a great prize.

Jake and Kirsten Barney from Lexington, Virginia were this year's winners and take home Kirsten's weight in beer, 12 cases, and five time her weight in cash which works out to $620. You do the math if you're curious.

You can see from this video Sunday River provided us with, that carrying your wife isn't easy.

Think you have what it takes? You better start training now for the 2018 North American Wife Carrying Championship.
