The internationally renowned obstacle challenge is set to make its debut in the Middle East on December 9 and 10. Organised by IMG in partnership with du telecoms company, the Tough Mudder and du Mini Mudder events will take place in Dubai’s Hamdan Sports Complex.
The hardcore adventure race, which has been held in 10 countries, including the United States, Australia, China, Mexico and more for the past six years, involves participants battling a series of obstacles such as an Arctic Enema 2.0, which is an icy water plunge and the Electroshock Therapy - a sprint through dangling electrical wires.
The Dubai event, which is scheduled for December 9-10, is the first in the Middle East. The team challenge will take place in the grounds of the Hamdan Sports Complex and includes a 16km course with more than 20 obstacles, and an 8km Tough Mudder Half, with 14 obstacles. There will also be a challenge for children ages 7-13, the Mini Mudder, which will be a 1.5km mud run. Tough Mudder has several popular obstacle challenges, including the Reebok Spartan Race, Talise Sandstorm, Wadi Adventure Race, Desert Warrior Challenge and The Sandpit Run.
According to Tough Mudder’s website, it takes the average participant around three hours to complete the course. If you’re feeling chicken though, you are allowed to skip obstacles you don’t feel comfortable with. The money raised from ticket sales for the Tough Mudder goes towards Help For Heroes – a charity that seeks to provide better facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty. Since its inception in 2010, Tough Mudder has welcomed a total of 2.5 million participants, holding over 200 events in 10 countries that have helped raise more than US$10 million for charity.
Tough Mudder events have united millions of active, fun-seeking individuals, and with its challenging obstacles and unique team-focused ethos, camaraderie and thrills, the du Tough Mudder will provide a memorable experience for participants.
The ticket costs include entry, T-shirt, headband and post-race refreshment. For more information, or to sign up to participate or spectate, visit www.toughmudder.ae.
