Rudridge limbers up for more strongman action

Published:  08 August, 2016

Rudridge has announced that, for a third consecutive year, it will be the sponsor of the Rudridge Ultimate Strongman Giant Weekend when the event takes place at the end of August in Belfast.

The groundworks and civil engineering specialist, which has branches in Horsham, Gravesend, Farnham and Brentford, will be supporting some of the strongest men from around the world as they go head to head to compete for the coveted X11 CNP Trophy.

Competitors will take part in an exciting display of disciplines designed to showcase their strongman credentials. These will include the boulder busting ‘caveman lift’, tiring ‘tyre flip’, and back breaking ‘truck push’.

Alan Betteridge, Rudridge director, said: “We are delighted to once again be involved with this extremely popular event. The athletes are truly incredible and entertaining to watch and really have their work cut out with a series of tough tasks that will test them to the limit.”
