MUSCAT: Tough Mudder made its event debut in Muscat at Telal Al Qurum during the weekend. The teamwork-focused, obstacle-crammed event was a first-time event in Oman promoting fun, while also challenging people and embracing a sense of community and teamwork.
Participants looking to do something different with their weekend took on the Tough Mudder 5K, which is an untimed format. To challenge everyone, and put their stamina to the test, they tackled a mud run, which included 14 unique obstacles and a never-ending supply of Mudder Nation camaraderie.
By designing and building innovative and unique obstacles, the course seen strangers become a team working together to tackle obstacles including Pyramid Scheme and Everest 2.0.
From tight spaces to high places, every course is locked and loaded with chances to conquer your fears, find your best, and experience the very best obstacles.
The 5K event format is a great way for Mudders to invite the friends and family who though they would never do one because it was too far or too hard.
Hundreds of children were also able to experience a real adventure with an obstacle course mud run designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids. The course was designed to give kids the chance to work as a team, get muddy, and experience the thrill of adventure.
All Mudders were able to train for the event by attending a free workout tour every Friday at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex from 8am. The free workout tour will continue on a weekly basis for all members of the public.
