Competitors participate in various MANLY feats to assert their male dominance by lifting up trees, crashing into each other at full speed and determining who can eat a pound of bacon the quickest.
The winner of the contest is determines by the top three contestants from the previous year and is awarded with a gift and a breakfast including (though not limited to) bacon, sausage, bacon and bacon.
It is not mandatory that you be a male to compete. Several women have entered the competition and some of those women have cracked the top three.
It is also not uncommon for participants to attend dressed as something manly (Chuck Norris, Danny Trejo, Black Dynamite, The Bearjew, etc...)
In the end, MANFAST is the greatest way to assert your dominance over the herd.
