Strongman battle at Salt Ayre

John Freeman
A competition to find Northern England's strongest man under 105kg will take place at Lancaster City Council’s Salt Ayre Sports Centre next week.

Over 20 athletes will be battling it out over six gruelling events to be crowned Northern England's Strongest Man under 105kg. The events will include the ‘Deadlift’, ‘Double Van Pull’, ‘Farmers Walk’, ‘Log Lift’, ‘Medley’ and ‘Atlas Stone Loading’.

The top competitors will also qualify for England's Strongest Man under 105kg in June.

Last year's champion Stuart Hayes will be defending his title against some strong opposition including local lads Graham Hicks in his first competition and Salt Ayre lifeguard and gym instructor Kenny Cardwell, who last year won the under 90kg Olympic Dragon Strongman title.

• The events take place on 11th April at 11.30am - 3.30pm in Salt Ayre's sports hall. Spectators are welcome with tickets costing £2 for adults and children can enter for free. For more information, please contact Salt Ayre Sports Centre on 01524 847540.
