Tough Guy and Gal + Tough Guy and Gal Championship – Rotorua

27 August

Tough Guy and Gal

So you’re tough, but are you tough enough to take on the Tough Guy and Gal Challenge?

New Zealand’s original mud run series; if you want to get down and dirty and have a whole lot of fun, then these unique off-road running events are for you.

Grab your friends, family or workmates and take on either the 6km or 12km muddy obstacle course consisting of swamp crossings, a spider’s web net climb, crawl under barb wire, beautiful native bush trails, tunnels, hurdles, a climbing frame, water crossings and not to mention, mud mud and more mud!

New Zealand Tough Guy & Gal Championship

Have you got what it takes to be the fastest, muddiest, and toughest Tough Guy or Tough Gal in New Zealand?

Take part in either the Adult Wellington or Auckland Tough Guy and Gal Challenges and podium in either the 6km and 12km, or take part in either of the Secondary School Tough Guy and Gal events in Wellington, Hamilton or Auckland and podium at the event and you will receive a letter inviting you to the 12km Steinlager Pure Ultra New Zealand Tough Guy & Gal Championship.

Or if you have podiumed at any of the Tough Guy and Gal Challenge events (6km or 12km) in the last 3 years or if you are confident you can run a distance of 10km in 45 minutes (for men) and 50 minutes (for women) then you are welcome to enter the NZ Champs.
