As this year's race falls on Father's Day there will be a Father's Day Challenge - A Test Of Strength!
This activity is kindly facilitated and sponsored by Stevenage Leisure (Flitwick Leisure Centre).
Is your Dad (or Mum!) strong enough to win the Father's Day Test Of Strength?!
The challenge is to:
1. Do as many bench presses as you can, with sacks of potatoes on each end of a 10kg barbell (approx 50kg in total), in one minute.
2. Take a 30 second rest.
3. Do as many dead lifts with the same bar in one minute.
Your scores will be added together and you will be placed on the leaderboard! Entry fee £5 paid on the day, and you can have as many goes as you like (as long as there are no new contestants waiting!).
Whilst the strongest competitor on the day was Anatoli Krassavine (102 reps), the prize of three months membership at Flitwick Leisure Centre was taken by his nearest rival Steve Ball (97 reps) as Anatoli does not live locally so would be unable to make best use of the prize.
The organiser would like to thank Stevenage Leisure for supplying a great prize, and once again congratulate Anatoli, Steve and Sophie - can the world records be broken next year?
