Competition Information

I am hosting a charity strongman event on 23rd July 2011 to help raise money towards Everton in the Community. Everton in the Community is an award winning registered charity that delivers a range of programmes to promote health, education, social inclusion and equality of opportunity across the country using the power of sport.
... Their aim is to instil confidence in people, by creating routes into education, training and employment, and steer them away from crime and anti-social behaviour. The Community also runs a wide range of programmes for people with disabilities including wheelchair soccer schools, deaf, blind and visually impaired teams.

“Oswestrys Strongest Man” will be held on 23rd July 2011 at the Oswestry Rugby Club, Park hall, SY11 4AB.

As well as the main event there will also be a bar, a BBQ, a raffle and several stalls offering information on local sports clubs, health and nutritional advice and sports massages.

We are also offering the opportunity for local businesses to sponsor an event in the strongman competition.
Sponsorship is £25 per event. This entitles the sponsor to advertise their business at the event with billboards and posters etc. Also, before each sponsored event the business sponsoring will be announced over the PA.

‘Oswestry’s Strongest Man’ will be judged on several events. These are:
• Deadlift for reps (using an Olympic bar) – Weight to be confirmed
• Overhead Log Press – Weight to be confirmed
• Farmers Walk – Weight to be confirmed
• Truck Pull (18 tonne scaffold wagon)
• Tyre Flip - Timed over distance
• Loading Race

Official registration will take place at 9am on the day. Competitors will be weighed and placed in their designated categories.

Please either email me at oswestrystrongman or message me on the event facebook page, or my personal facebook account.

If you are interested in taking part in this event please message me beforehand with your name, age, weight and any experience you have in strongman competitions. Please also include your deadlift, bench press and overhead press PBs (personal bests). This will help me place people in categories with people of similar strengths.

There is an entrance fee of £12 per competitor. This will cover the costs of prizes, expenses and help raise more money for my chosen charity. Spectators enter for free, but donation buckets will be present if you wish to make any contributions.

Due to demand from several rugby clubs in the area we will now also be hosting a Tug of War competition in the afternoon, after the strongman competition. 5 people per team. Anyone welcome, teams will be registered on the day
