Thirty Strongmen to Battle it Out at World’s Strongest Man May 1-5 in Myrtle Beach

In partnership with Visit Myrtle Beach, the 47th edition of the World’s Strongest Man competition returns to the Myrtle Beach oceanfront at Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place May 1-5.

Thirty of the world’s top strongmen will once again be pushed to their physical and mental limits with an epic series of events, including the return of the Car Walk, a fan-favorite event where athletes will race two-by-two, strapping a vintage VW bug to their shoulders before racing down a 25-meter course.

This is the second year in a row that the competition has been held in Myrtle Beach.

New this year is the Sandbag Steeplechase, featuring a twist on the standard loading race; large sandbags are carried and thrown over a bar before being collected and loaded onto a platform in the fastest time possible.

The current list of athletes competing in the 2024 SBD World’s Strongest Man Championship includes: Mitchell Hooper (CAN), Tom Stoltman (GBR), Luke Stoltman (GBR), Adam Bishop (GBR), Gavin Bilton (GBR), Shane Flowers (GBR), Trey Mitchell (USA), Evan Singleton (USA), Rob Kearney (USA), Bobby Thompson (USA), Thomas Evans (USA), Kristjan Jon Haraldsson (ISL), Pavlo Kordiyaka (UKR), Eddie Williams (AUS), Mathew Ragg (NZ), Jaco Schoonwinkel (RSA), Aivars Smaukstelis (LVA), Rauno Heinla (EST), Spenser Remick (USA), and new to the competition this year, Nathan Goltry (USA), Marcus Crowder (USA), Austin Andrade (MEX), Evans Nana (GHA), Oskar Ziolkowski (POL), Kane Francis (GBR), Nicolas Cambi (ITA), and Wesley Derwinsky (CAN).

Tickets are on sale now for the four-day competition, which also features a FREE Fan Festival area including a viewing area, food trucks, giveaways and a special sensory room hosted by KultureCity for families and individuals who have sensory needs or non-visible disabilities.
