Tough Guy and Gal logo + sponsor

Every year around New Zealand at Tough Guy and Gal Challenge events official event mugs are handed out to participants. Every year they’re a different colour.

The Tough Guy and Gal series, comprised of the main Loaded Tough Guy and Gal Challenge events, spans six cities across New Zealand’s North Island. The series also encompasses the ITM Junior Tough Guy and Gal Challenge events – open to primary and intermediate aged kids – the Secondary Schools Tough Guy and Gal Challenge events – allowing students to take on other students from around the country in NZQA approved events – and the Moa New Zealand Tough Guy and Gal Championship.

Now adorning living room mantle pieces, and stocking op shop shelves, throughout the country, the cups have covered a gamut of colours over the years.

    I have one from 2011! Not sure how to upload it…I actually won my entry through the Wanganui Chronicle. When I asked where I watched the event from the promoter laughed and said ‘No, you’re taking part in it! Waow! I had 3 young kids, the youngest was 2, Pre kids I was used to tramping, so tracks and mud didn’t worry me. I gave my ticket to another mum so she could take part with her twin sister.
