Tough Mud­der

Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

What:

A 16-20km course with mil­i­tarystyle ob­sta­cles de­signed by Bri­tish Spe­cial Forces to test all-round strength, stamina, men­tal grit and team­work.

Why:

Co-founder Will Dean, bored with “just run­ning in a straight line” in marathons, con­ceived Tough Mud­der as a fun chal­lenge to be done with mates.

Mud fore­cast:

Thick. Main ob­sta­cles Kiss of Mud and Mud Mile will give par­tic­i­pants a new way to think about fit­ness and ad­ven­ture.

Ob­sta­cles:

These test people’s fears of heights, con­fined spa­ces, swim­ming in icecold wa­ter or run­ning through elec­tric shocks, are de­signed for a 78% suc­cess rate.

How:

“The goal is not to win a medal, but sim­ply to fin­ish (and) the course is de­signed to be vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to com­plete in­di­vid­u­ally,” Aus­trala­sia gen­eral man­ager Jeremy Kann said.

Where:

Tough Mud­der Sun­shine Coast is the big­gest course on the planet packed full of haz­ards, such as hills, wa­ter, ropes, walls, elec­tric shocks and mud.

Char­ity:

Tough Mud­der sup­ports Sol­dier On, which helps wounded De­fence Force work­ers and aids their re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and re-en­try into the com­mu­nity.
