The 2018 du Tough Mudder and Mini Mudder ends on a HIGH note this year

A new generation of Middle Eastern ‘Legionnaires’ were created this weekend as ’Mudder Nation’ came together as a team to conquer their fears and complete the latest edition of du Tough Mudder in Dubai.

Taking place at Hamdan Sports Complex, competitors joined together in a life-changing adventure and faced the ultimate challenge of physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

With a line-up of more obstacles than ever before, including six new obstacles, the 2018 edition of du Tough Mudder proved to be the most successful yet with ‘Mudders’ travelling from across the Middle East and further afield to participate in:

  • 40 tonnes of ice
  • Grade-a mud
  • 40,000 volts

The two-day event included a 10k course with returning obstacles such as Everest 2.0, The BlockNess Monster and Birth Canal.

The event also welcomed back du Mini Mudder, which featured a brand-new 1.5k course designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids aged 7-13.

"Following on from the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge, du Tough Mudder was the perfect event to train for throughout DFC and our du Tough Mudder pop-up obstacles at Kite Beach during the 30-day challenge emphasized this," said Abdulwahed Juma, Executive Vice President of du.

"We have watched Tough Mudder grow year-on-year from strength to strength and we look forward to continuing to support the renowned event over the coming years," he added.

The event also provided visitors with a variety of entertainment including a warm-up zone with trainers from The Warehouse Gym, live DJs, epic sponsor activations and a combination of F&B outlets.

The fun came in all shapes and sizes from du Mini Mudder’s new course to new global obstacles on the adult course for 2018 such as ‘Walk The Plank’, ‘Giant A-Hole’ and ‘Devils Beard’.

So many participants from our pre-event training sessions with Warehouse Gym conquered the epic obstacles at the mud-filled event.

The Tough Mudder brand has continued to grow over the past three years and the higher number of participants this year and feedback from our ‘Mudders’ shows how increasingly popular the event has become in this region.

The Tough Mudder challenge has united millions of active, fun-seeking individuals across the planet for its third consecutive year.

With bigger and better obstacles to come next year!
