The challenge took place on the course inside the New Zealand Army Camp at Linton, Manawatu, a challenging and enjoyable track.  The Tough Guy & Gal Challenge is New Zealand’s biggest mud run series, and with having had over 160mm of rain in the last 3 weeks and more rain forecast for both days, there was sure to be of a great deal of mud included in the fun!

… and sure a lot of mud!

The 1.5km, 3km (for kids), 6km or 12km courses are designed to get participants muddy while completing awesome obstacles including net climbs, barb wire crawls, swamp crossings, climbing frames, tunnels and a wonderful mud pit….!!

A great event, with Friday being the Junior Event with over 700 children registered and Saturday being the adult event with over 900 registered, what a great cause and not one to be missed!
