This event has been running for 5 years and all proceeds go to charity each year. It is a massive fundraiser and a great day out for the whole family.

The categories are filled with the toughest challenges and the competitors train for months to achieve the title of  Strongman and Strongwomen.

Our Sponsors this year include Matrix, C & A Autocentre Glenrothes  and  Inverkeithing , Harry Fairbairn Kirkcaldy and  Owen Buchanan Builders Ltd Kirkcaldy. Timbershack are very generously donating the trophies for the winners this year as they have the past 5 years.
