Think you’re tough Melbourne? As the toughest assault course returns to Victoria for 2013, here’s your chance to prove it! The Tough Bloke Challenge will see Melbournian adrenaline junkies tackle one of the most gruelling adventure runs in Australia on the 23rd and 24th of March at Wonga Park, Victoria.

The 2013 Tough Bloke Challenge is not your average fun run! It is an event open to all men and women of Victoria who are game enough to confront a hellish 7 km cross-country course in a brute test of strength and endurance whilst having a whole heap of fun!

For the first time ever, those partaking in this year’s Tough Bloke Challenge will also have the option to run for fun or to raise money for the McGrath Foundation. McGrath Foundation Ambassador and Director, Tracy Bevan, says the McGrath Foundation is thrilled men and women are participating in the Tough Bloke Challenge and literally jumping through hoops and overcoming hurdles to show their support.

“We’re looking forward to seeing splashes of pink throughout the muddy course and we hope that by making a difference to the lives of Australian families experiencing breast cancer, it will motivate all participants to do their best both on the course and in their fundraising,” Tracy said.

The Tough Bloke Challenge features a number of muscle-burning obstacles, mud pits, trenches covered with barbed wire, dark concrete tunnels, ice-cold water crossings, plus many other demanding challenges.

One particular highlight of the event is considered to be the ultimate hurdle, aptly named ‘Hells Gate’! The obstacle is not for the feint-hearted, coming with tales of rope burns at nerve racking heights and is feared most by the experienced campaigners.

The Tough Bloke Challenge is cross-country running at its toughest, whether you’re a seasoned veteran, or new to the whole experience, the event promises to be a fun day for all! Every participant will receive a finisher’s medal, but ultimately bragging rights and the satisfaction of accomplishment is the greatest reward!

Get ready for Mud, Sweat and Tears!
