Blind foundation clients wishing to embark on a new fitness challenge and goal for 2016, we have the ultimate challenge for you!

If this sounds like you and you have a good general level of fitness, no major health issues, a great have-a-go attitude and you’re a team player, then we want to hear from you.

You’ll have the chance to run through water trails, crawl under barb wire obstacles, swamp crossings, bush trails, equestrian obstacles, open paddocks, hill climbs, an “A-FRAME” climb, wire rope bridge and climbing walls to add excitement to course challenge.

This tough guy & gal mud run challenge will have 2,000 competitors racing on the day. You, as a Blind Foundation athlete, and your guide will be participating on Saturday 2 July 2016.

Not only will you challenge yourself physically and mentally but you’ll have lots of fun, meeting and making friends, whilst experiencing the 6 kilometres (one lap) or 12 kilometres (two laps) spectacular  physical course.
