THE search is on to find Hawick’s Man of Steel.
A charity challenge has been set up which incorporates a number of different events, including strength, muscle stamina and cardiovascular tests.
And the winner will hopefully still have the strength to lift a huge cheque for their chosen good cause.
Organiser Scott Weddle, pictured, who arranged the hugely successful bench press marathon last year, explained: “I’m trying to find Hawick’s all-rounder.
“It’s something that is suited to a variety of people, from rugby and football players to boxers, sprinters and athletes.”
In total there will be 11 events ranging from a single bench press and single lift squat, to a farmer’s walk and incline treadmill run, followed by a 500m row and bleep test.
Six events will be at the gym at Fairhurst Drive with the other five taking place at Think Fitness.
Scott added: “I’m not looking to sicken people. Although it’s all being held on one day, there will be enough time for people to recover.”
A minimum £50 sponsorship is required to enter the competition, which will take place on June 26. Sponsor forms are available from Yeomans, Northport and Think Fitness.
