Serious or fun?

We make a fuss about the winners at the pointy end of the Tough Bloke Challenge who muscle their way through the 25 obstacles risking life and limb for line honours and the added bonus of taking home the trophy but are they really the toughest out there on the day? Those Tough Blokes and Tough Chicks are super fit, muscles bulging and wearing nothing but skin tight compression gear, but hey spare a thought for those that drag that extra few kilos of mud around the 8km course by wearing a FANCY DRESS costume!! We have had some great outfits in the past…a variety of superheroes, an nutty professor and even some unmasked Predator’s turned up one year!! Imagine tackling Hell’s Gate wearing that get up!! For a collection of some of our favourite costumes click HERE Why do it when you know you won’t get a spot on the podium and people will only laugh and point at you? Well its fun, that’s why! Plus we have some great PRIZES for Best FANCY DRESS on offer for both days of the event. Read More
