The world’s largest and most successful masonry challenge, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500, is back and better than ever! North America’s top masons have prepared all year long for the chance to be named, “World’s Best Bricklayer.” Entering its 19th year, this unique and grueling competition has captured the hearts and mind of people from all over the world.
The SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 Pennsylvania Regional Series event takes place on September 16th at Fizzano Brothers in Crum Lynn, PA. The SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 East Tennessee Regional Series event takes place on September 17th at the Appalachian Fair Grounds in Gray, TN. The competition is designed to test the speed, skill, and stamina of each participant by challenging them to build the best 26-foot-long brick wall, with as few errors as possible, in one hour. Working with their trusted mason tender, the winning bricklayer is determined by a judging panel who subtracts any mistakes from the total number of bricks laid on the wall. The mason with the highest brick count at the end of judging earns a roster spot at the 2021 World Championship taking place in Las Vegas during the World of Concrete.
World Championship prizes total more than $100,000 and include a new Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 truck, Multiquip Mortar Mixer, tools from IQ Power Tools and STIHL, and much more. SPEC MIX and our regional sponsors are adhering to local Covid-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of all competitors, workers and spectators. Capacity for the event will be limited.
