The day saw championship strongmen take part in a tractor and trailer pull, as well as being the venue for the first Peak District Dinnie Stone Challenge. This event saw the strongmen have to lift two huge boulders and hold them as long as they could.

Paul Smith was the winner with a time of one minute and four seconds.

There was also a tug of war with children being given the opportunity to challenge the strongmen.
