Tough Guy

You gotta figure a race named ‘Tough Guy’ is gonna live up to its name. Purportedly the world’s most demanding one-day survival ordeal, Tough Guy is the grand daddy of them all having started in 1986. Last year over 5,000 racers participated in the two-mile obstacle course held on a farm in Perton, Staffordshire, England. The series of races are organized by Billy Wilson (using the pseudonym “Mr Mouse”).

Like many of these other extreme adventure competitions, participants must sign a “death warrant”, which acknowledges the risks and dangers. Gimmick? Sure, but with less than one-third of competitors finishing, race organizers can’t be too careful. After all, the race has previously suffered two fatalities. Why take a chance?
