UK’s Strongest Man Live at Stadium MK

Over the bank holiday weekend, we hosted the Channel 5 show UK’s Strongest Man.

The event took place from 29-31 May and saw 16 athletes from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales battle it out on our MK Dons football pitch.  

It was fantastic to welcome 4,000 spectators each day who witnessed superhuman feats of strength.

The events included an 8,500-kilogram truck push, a brick lift, a carry and drag medley, the Viking press, and the Atlas Stones.

The weekend culminated in a dramatic final as eight finalists competed in five gruelling events. Defending champion Gavin Bilton came out on top, retaining the UKs Strongest man title.


  1. Gavin Bilton —30 points 
  2. Paul Smith — 27 points
  3. Andy Black — 27 points
  4. Pa O’Dwyer — 26 points
  5. Scott Milne — 5 points
  6. Matthew McCoy — 5 points
  7. Andrew Flynn — 5 points
  8. Louis Jack — 5 points
