How it works
THE DETAILS: Who said you can’t have a Muddy good time
With COVID-19 postponing our outdoor events, we’re not going to give up on you that easily.
So, if we can't Team up together at this time you can now go it alone with our virtual 8km ‘Suck It Up Buttercup’ fitness challenge. We have substituted all your favourite muddy Obstacles into 10 challenging Bodyweight exercises!
You can tackle the challenge on your treadmill, verandah, hallway, bike (stationary or outside) on a stepper or in the great outdoors in your own backyard.
Do laps around your block etc just use your imagination to get the 8kms and 10 exercises done.
You can take on the whole 8km’s and the 10 testing exercises in one awesome effort, or break it up into several smaller awesome efforts.
