No, the course will not be accessible before the event.
The Tough Bloke Challenge is accessible to all runners with the correct preparation. If you haven't been for a run recently, now's the time to get
training. If you are uncomfortable with any obstacle, you can skip it, but there will be a 10 minute time penalty for every obstacle missed.
The course will be marked with brightly coloured markers for easy guidance. Marshalls will also be positioned at critical points
along the course for extra guidance when it is needed. The trail outline and markings will be discussed at the briefing prior to the
commencement of the event.
Wear some old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. A good suggestion is to buy some clothes from the Salvation Army which you won't mind throwing away at the end of the event (please make sure you take all your rubbish and old clothes with you when you leave).
Closed shoes must be worn, so get out those old runners that you don't mind getting dirty.
There will be water available along the course.
