The Shaw Classic is hosted by, Brian Shaw, a 4x World's Strongest Man, and Colorado Native. During the Covid pandemic, many events around the world were cancelled, which left professional strongmen without contests to compete in. Brian created a response, to help his brothers in strength, in a time of need. Shaw hosted the first Shaw Classic, at his private gym, in Estes Park. He funded over $50,000 in prize money and covered all travel & food costs for the top 10 strongest men in the world.


Just two years later, in 2022, the Shaw Family is making the Shaw Classic bigger and better. The best of the best, the strongest of the strongest, will all be at the Budweiser Events Center putting on a spectacular display of strength, which will be sure to leave those of all ages speechless.
