THINK of it as a grueling obstacle race – only dirtier.
Tough Mudder, a multi-course challenge in the mud, is set to hold its first event in Southeast Asia in the Philippines on July 21 to 22 at Portofino Amore along Daang Hari road in Alabang.
Tough Mudder Philippines ambassador Xian Lim experienced the obstacle race in Scotland recently, among 11,000 participants who underlined the value of teamwork in going through the full course of 10.6 miles and 27 obstacles.
“Alone we can do little, but together we can do so much more,” Lim said. “That’s what I learned here at Tough Mudder. It is absolutely an amazing experience we had here in Scotland…I can’t wait for July 21-22, when we finally have Tough Mudder in the Philippines.”
In partnership with Proactive Sports Management, the Philippine edition will take place on the recently enhanced bike trail at Daang Hari along with the rolling hills and various varieties of mud in the adjacent farmland.
The race has four categories with corresponding prices: Tough Mudder 5K Basic (P1,700), Half-Basic (P2,900), 5K-Premium (P3,200), and Half-Premium (P4,400), all including a kit of an event singlet, racebib, finisher’s shirt, and finisher’s headband.
The Half-Premium and 5K-Premier classifications also come with a 10-liter drybag and a towel.
Registration is ongoing, and interested participants can visit www.toughmudder.ph and on Facebook.com/ToughMudderPhilippines.
