Weightlifting Competition - Stock C Pack

I thought it would be interesting to run a contest for building a plane that can do a 400m circuit (standard running track) with a stock power pod & C-pack and 10x4.5 prop. Winner is the one that can carry the most dead weight, do the circuit and land in one piece. What high lift wings to use? Flying wing or conventional? Pusher or tractor? Hand launch, dolly or wheels?

Does anyone have good examples that might fit the criteria? How much cargo weight could you get into the air?
