Come check out the 10th Annual Muscle on Main Strongman (and women) event on the streets of downtown Morton! We combined forces with the Strongman Masters Pro U.S. Nationals this year so you will have the chance to see the Pros in action before the Amateurs tackle 5 events, showcasing some of the strongest men and women in the area!

The Pros will be showcasing 5 events at Muscle on Main including the Press Medley, Deadlift, Farmer’s Walk, Carry and Drag Medley and the H Stone.
