The Winter Giants Strongman Competition

This December Hyndburn Leisure Centre, Accrington is hosting The Winter Giants Strongman competition. At 12:00p.m. on Sunday 13th December 2009 12 athletes will meet at Hyndburn Leisure Centre to take part in 6 events including, stones and the deadlift, over 3 hours.

We are proud to say that one of our valued customers Mark Felix is one of the 12 athletes who will be taking part in this Winter Giants Strongman competition. Mark Felix is a leading strongman competitor and regular entrant to the World’s Strongest Man competition. In winning the Rolling Thunder World Champi­on­ships in 2008 and 2009, as well as holding the world record in the event, he is regarded as having one of the strongest grips in the world. As Mark Felix is a valued customer of Greengates Builders Merchants, Lancashire we have decided to support him and sponsor this exciting event.

Included in the 12 athletes at The Winter Giants Strongman competition are the BIG 4: Felix, Terry, Loz and Jimmy who are Britain’s top 4 and inter­national athletes. The Winter Giants Strongman event will be the first and the last time this year that these top 4 will have the chance to battle and compete against each other. There are 400 tickets up for sale but hurry now because they’re selling fast. All the proceeds made at this event will go towards setting up another event in the future.
