UK's Strongest Man, Folkestone - Saturday 15th July 2017

The Strongest Man UK (U105kg) is organized on behalf of Folkestone Festivals by Marc Cherry of Hyperoptic, who was at the Hawkinge Festival in 2016. Twelve of the UK’s strongest men will qualify for this great final.!

This year it will take place in the area from the bandstand towards the Leas which is ideal for this particularly the hard surface between the grass with viewing either side.

Martin VOS will be hosting on the day. Head Referee for the day is Sean Kennedy 3 times UK Champion 2012-2014-2015.

Rebel Strength will be supplying the kit and will be there on the day.  Straps, belts and suits on deadlift. Briefs, wraps and belts on squats.

Athletes will be announced when qualifiers are finished.  Aaron Davis 2016 Champ will be there to defend his title.

The other side of the bandstand there will be an inflatable 50ft tunnel run with obstacles, Gladiator Joust, lnflatable football out game and plan for pedal Go Karting.

There will be additional toilets, (thanks to sponsorship from a local business), as well as catering stalls (fish/burger type) and ice cream van. There will be no alcohol sold – these can be obtained from the nearby hotels, bars etc if people need them.  Spectators are encouraged to bring their own chairs and picnics.
