About this event

Scottish Tough Mudder lands at the Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate, Thornhill, Dumfriesshire on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July. You probably already know about Tough Mudder, they are the big boys in obstacle racing, expect a very large and well organised event, which is based in a beautiful location in Scotland this year.

The course

The course is approximately 12 miles long with around 26 obstacles along the way (that’s 3 a mile!) – this event really does separate the men from the boys! Serious training is needed for this, with a minimum 5 miles a week combined with some weight and circuit training.
