The Mount Nebo Truck-Pull will be Saturday, July 24, 2021. This competition will take place
at the Tractor Bar in Mount Nebo as a part of their belated St. Patrick’s Day Parade festivities.
What is a truck pull? A rope is tied to the front of a firetruck. Teams work together to pull the
truck a set distance in the fastest time. Co-workers, cross-fit members, businesses, friends,
families, kids, high school alumni, co-ed teams, worship friends, police departments, EMS
teams, and fire department teams are all welcome to participate. No super strength is required.
Active SWV along with partners at the Wilderness Volunteer Fire Department have chosen a
beginner friendly course and truck.
Registration is $25 per person with 6-person teams. Individuals may also register and will be
placed onto a team the morning of. Both pre-registration and day-of registration is available.
Registration will be from 9:30am until 10:15am. The Truck-Pull competition will run from
10:30am until 1pm. Prizes are provided for winning teams, and first place will have the
opportunity to ride in the parade.
