The Timed Event Championship of the World debuted in 1985. In the world of rodeo at that time, cowboys were beginning to specialize in one or two events.

EK Gaylord II, builder and owner of the Lazy E, and a few close cowboy friends had the idea to develop an event that showcased the all-around cowboy, the cowboy who could excel in multiple events, and thus the “Ironman of ProRodeo” was born.

ProRodeo’s top 25 timed event cowboys in the world are invited and required to compete in all five timed events—heading, tie-down, heeling, steer wrestling, and steer roping—over five rounds & three grueling days of competition. While there have been a few minor changes over the years, the event has essentially remained the same. With a total purse of $200,000, the winner walks away with a $100,000 paycheck and bragging rights.
