Fancy yourself as an extreme athlete but intimidated by obstacle courses? Tough Mudder returns to Dubai in April.
Fans of flinging themselves around the five-kilometre track and anyone looking for a pre-summer challenge should sign up now, while early bird tickets are available.
The adults and kids races are now at a new home in Sports City for a finale on 12th April, where weeks of training, or possibly none at all, will pay off for the untimed event.
It’s a lighter version of the standard 16km Tough Mudder Course, but there are still 13 mud and water-based obstacles to tackle and finishing with a clean tee is not an option. So get your friends together ready for a day of “courage, personal accomplishment, teamwork and fun.”
There’s also a Tough Mudder evening at Adventure HQ in Times Square Center store on 27th March. Between 4pm-8pm, anyone who purchases can try out the climbing wall there for free.
Plus, Little Mudders aged five to 12 have their own 1.6 km run and early bird tickets for all are available now. Spectators go free too.
Nic Cartwright, from organisers Sabco Sports, says: “We wanted to create a brand-new event in Dubai and bring the 5k course route to Dubai Sports City to give people who might be intimidated by the full Tough Mudder course, the opportunity to try out Tough Mudder. It is the perfect challenge to take on with colleagues or if you’re new to fitness.”
Adults aged 13 and over AED 350 (early bird AED 275), kids AED 150 (AED 75 early bird). 12th April from 8am. Dubai Sports City. www.toughmudder.ae
Sorry, Dubai Mudders – the free training sessions with Gold’s Gym that we mentioned have now been cancelled.
