The Saudi Sports for All Federation (SFA) has invited people across the country to take on Tough Mudder: the ultimate mud and obstacle course. Set to be hosted at Dirab Golf & Country Club, Riyadh, on 25th November 2022, the event will bring communities together to get fit and active outdoors.
An endurance event like no other, Tough Mudder is designed to help participants overcome challenges — including their fear of water and heights — and sharpen their teamwork skills. It provides people the opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing and put their physical skills to the test while socializing and taking on an exciting range of obstacle courses — which they will be tasked with navigating by running, climbing, and crawling.
Open to people of all ages, the event will challenge adult participants to complete a 5 km or 10 km course with over 21 obstacles. Kids under the age of 13 will be given the opportunity to take part in the age-appropriate Mini Mudder: a 1.5 km course with more than eight obstacles.
Fully aligned with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and Quality of Life Program goals, Tough Mudder has been created to equip Saudi citizens and residents with the tools to safeguard their health and wellness.
The launch of the event marks the latest step taken by SFA to raise physical activity levels in the Kingdom through the provision of world-class resources, experiences, and facilities.
