10 reasons why Filipino expats should participate in du Tough Mudder

by | Lifestyle, News

Nov. 27, 18 | 10:07 am

Time’s running out as only a few days remain for Filipino expats to sign up for the muddiest challenge in the UAE, du Tough Mudder 2018 – running from 7-8 December 2018 at Hamdan Sports Complex.

Whether you’ve seen the epic videos, watched your friends and family sign up, or considered doing it yourself – and hesitated – we’ve compiled a list of excuse-busting reasons for you to get off your sofa and get to the event.

With tickets nearly sold out, this is your last chance to sign up for an unforgettable experience, brave mud and other elements while facing your fears – and feel that rush of adrenaline when you complete the course.

You don’t have to be an athlete: it’s not a race, it’s a course with next level fun, and no shiny medal reserved for those who finish first – you get a rad t-shirt and headband when you cross the finish line. So take your time, push yourself, and reward your grit with the satisfaction of completing the course!

It’s fun for the whole family: du Tough Mudder’s got mud, adrenaline, teamwork and is about testing your limits, and little Mudders can take on their 1.5km version of the challenge right alongside you at the du Mini Mudder course!

Kickstart your diet: Less sugar? More Protein? More plants? Whatever it is, now is the time. All du Tough Mudder ticketholders can avail up to 15% off Fuel-Up meal plans by Kcal, as well as dedicated meal plans.

It’s not just mud: Granted that the 80 tonnes of mud is proof of why mud is in the name, the course will also feature 30 tonnes of ice, 28 obstacles, and a whopping 10,000 volts of electricity!

Raise your street cred: Tired of being considered a pushover? Watch people take you seriously when you say you’ve destroyed 10km of obstacle-filled insanity.

Impress your friends: Or better yet, drag them along. You can (finally) use that GoPro you used once and forgot about. Also, imagine the number of #throwbackthursday posts on Instagram – you won’t be able to stop bragging!

Show your ex what they missed out on: Revenge is a dish best served muddy, right? If nothing else, you’ll realise if you can get through du Tough Mudder, you can do better than them.

A burger will never taste as good: Step aside, Michelin-starred chefs – nothing beats a meal you’ve earned at the Mudder Village after completing du Tough Mudder.

Meet new people: New people are cool. You are cool. Be cool together.

Hang out with friends from work…outside of work: Cubicles are boring. Face it, nothing says teamwork like a day of navigating barbed wire. So sign up for a corporate deal starting at 10% discount/!
