Strong partnership for UK’s Strongest Man competition

The UK’s Strongest Man 2017 takes place this summer, with groundworks and civil engineering distributor Rudridge again sponsoring the event.

The competition is being held in Belfast from Thursday 3rd – Sunday 6th August, with a line-up of competitors from across the country.

Events include the Truck Drag, the Car Roll, the Silver Dollar Deadlift and the Axe Barbarian Crucifix – each one designed to test the stamina, strength and sheer jaw-dropping power of the athletes taking part.

Alan Betteridge, director at Rudridge, said: “We’re really thrilled to be sponsoring this event once again. It truly is a spectacle and draws in huge crowds to Belfast. The contestants seem almost superhuman, but when you read about their gruelling training schedules and high-calorie diets, you start to get an idea of the dedication involved.”
