The popular global obstacle course race (OCR) series will be heading to South Africa in September, in the form of the inaugural Discovery Tough Mudder.
The first Discovery Tough Mudder event will take place from 15-16 September, 2018 at Old Mac Daddy in Elgin in the Western Cape. The weekend will feature the signature Tough Mudder challenge, a 16 km obstacle course challenge that features over 20 obstacles, along with the Tough Mudder Half, an 8 km course that brings the thrills of Tough Mudder across 11 obstacles.
As a Discovery supported event, Vitality members will be awarded with 800 points for completing the 8km course, while those braving the 16km route will earn 1,100 points.
Tough Mudder, Inc. started in 2010 in the United States and this year, through its licensees, will host more than 130 events across nearly a dozen countries, including Germany, England, Australia, Ireland, Canada, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and New Zealand. The events welcome participants worldwide into a global community seeking the challenge, camaraderie and thrills that only a Tough Mudder experience can offer.
