Strong­man Clas­sic raises char­ity cash

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

THE THIRD Haldenby Strong­man Clas­sic event has raised more than £2,000 for Macmil­lan Cancer Sup­port.

The chal­lenge, which was held last Satur­day, is named af­ter strong­man Mark Haldenby, who sadly died last year af­ter los­ing his bat­tle with cancer.

Mark at­tended the event the first time it was run, help­ing to raise money for the cancer char­ity, but this was the first year with­out him.

Mark’s wife, Caz, Haldenby and daugh­ters Jorja, Ebony and Priya were on hand dur­ing Satur­day’s event and handed out the tro­phies to the day’s win­ners.

Strong­man and friend of Mark, Stu­art Whyte, told The

Oban Times: ‘We asked Caz if she wanted us to hold the event again this year and she was de­lighted that we wanted to. I think they all re­ally en­joyed them­selves.’

Four events took place on Satur­day for both com­pet­ing strong­men and strong­women to take part in – Vik­ing press, tyre flip, dead­lift for reps and at­las stones. There was also a dis­play from Fort Wil­liam cheer­lead­ers Ben Ne­vis All Stars.
