FORMER county champion Tim Wilding is behind a new-look strongman contest planned for this month’s Northwich Festival at Moss Farm.
It replaces the UK North showpiece that has traditionally formed part of the annual four-day event on August bank holiday.
“I want to make it faster and more achievable with an emphasis on encouraging the crowd to get behind local lads,” said Wilding.
Winnington-based Works Gym sponsors the event.
“It would be great to create a competitive edge between the gyms in the town, and the revamped format will make it entertaining to watch for spectators,” said owner Mike Blake, also a former Cheshire’s strongest man.
