South East Queensland's Woodfordia might mostly be associated with the serene tunes heard at Woodfolk Folk Festival, but for one weekend in May, Tough Mudder is taking over for a down-and-dirty event like none other. For the uninitiated, Tough Mudder is an all-encompassing trial of strength, stamina and grit that sees participants battle it out over a nine- or 16-kilometre course spattered with obstacles and challenges.
Held from May 19 to 20, the SE Qld Tough Mudder features more than 20 stumbling blocks, with a host of new obstacles making their first appearances this year. Some of the challenges you'll encounter — and will have to conquer — include a field of dangling electrified wires, a mile of mud that you must crawl across, a 16-feet-tall wall and the Arctic Enema, an ice-filled pool that you have to swim through.
Tough Mudder is not to be taken lightly. Despite its beautiful backdrop of rolling hills and dense forest, the daring endurance challenge will test both first-timers and Tough Mudder veterans. But luckily, it's less of a race and more of a team challenge. There's no winner and no clock — just an ice cold beer waiting for you at the finish line.
To celebrate the first Tough Mudder race of the 2018 season, we're giving away a VIP team package to Tough Mudder SE Qld. The package includes four VIP passes — for either the full (16 kilometres) or half (nine) — two VIP parking passes and four bag drop passes.
