The Sandwell's Strongest Man competition returns on May Bank Holiday weekend in a trial of strength spread over two days, culminating in the spectacular in Lightwoods Park as part of the Mayday Festival. Last year's event saw the winners being cheered on by thousands of people on the green in front of Lightwoods House.
This year's event is intended to be even better and there are a range of events which will include: the Vehicle pull – Giant dumbbell press – Farmer's walk – Log lift for weight – Carry and drag – Tyre flip – Dead lifts and NEW for 2014: The Super Yoke
Sandwell Leisure Trust who run the annual competition have a strong field of competitors in the over 90kg category (14 stone) but are looking for more strong men in the under 90kg event.
If you or anyone you know wants to give it a go in either category you can get more information from the Sandwell Leisure Trust website or by contacting Mike Child from SLT via: firstname.lastname@example.org
