Do you have what it takes to be a Tough Mann? You can soon find out!

This gruelling, team-oriented adventure challenge is contested over a 10k course – which sounds straightforward enough – except there’s the small matter of 25 obstacles to overcome along the way! Cut off times will apply. 

Double lap runners need to complete the first lap in 1hr 45 mins!

Designed to test physical strength and mental courage, you may well start the event as an individual, but you’re likely to finish it as a team player because many of the obstacles require competitors to help each other.

In a nutshell, Tough Mann is a mixture of running, walking and crawling over the Manx countryside. For this year’s event a new course at Ballaugh has been created to include jumping over abandoned cars, scaling a monster hill climb, clambering over hay bales, scrambling under cargo nets and ploughing through muddy bogs.

You will also face the ‘rope scramble’, ‘the telegraph poles’, and the ‘gator crawl’ and face the possibility of being jet washed. And if that isn’t enough, expect to become tangled in the woods and encounter a ‘gunk’ tank with ice blocks, monkey bars and a gorse maze.

If you’re averagely fit – you can do it!

Reassuringly, you don’t have to be Superman or Superwoman to enter – in fact, anyone of standard fitness level should be able to complete the course. And there’s no time limit.

But if you can’t complete an obstacle, there should hopefully be a fellow Tough Mann nearby or a marshal on hand to help you find an alternative route.

All competitors who complete this year’s Tough Mann will receive a well-earned Bushy’s beer & victory t-shirt

There are prizes for the fastest man, woman and three man or woman teams. In addition, spot prizes are given out on the day for things such as best fancy dress.

To help create a festival atmosphere, the Tough Mann event arena is also equipped with children’s entertainment, food vans, live music, and full rest-room facilities.

If you’re entered - prepare to get muddy!
