Tough Guy Survival Course – England

… an eight-mile cross country run before being faced with an obstacle course requiring ‘the athletes‘ to crawl under barbed wire, run over burning bales of hay, swim in underwater tunnels full of icy water and negotiate their way through underground pipes.




Why is it so manly?

You mean besides the regular broken legs and bouts of hypothermia? Well, according to the Tough Guy organizer Billy Wilson, there is no other one day survival course as grueling as his. The closest, he says, is the Navy S.E.A.L’s ‘Grinder’ Assault Course but even that pales in comparison to the Tough Guy circuit. Don’t believe it? Check out the website and decide for yourself.

  1. Need a break? How about an Adventure Race in Costa Rica? The Active Arenal Volcano is the host for this year’s 7th Edition of the 24 Hours of Costa Rica. The race starts at 9am on Saturday the 6th of December from the town of La Fortuna.

    As in past years, Teams of 2, 3 and 4 will compete on one of 2 different routes. The Pro route will be 150 + kms and it is unlikely that any team will finish in less than 24 hours. The Sport route is challenging but won’t be as long (less than 90kms) and should take less than the 24 hours to complete. The Sport route is definitely a challenge but has been designed to be more enjoyable rather than grueling.

    Disciplines during the race include mountain biking, trekking, sea kayaking, canopy traversing and some fun navigating.

    We still have room for more teams so if you and your team are interested in a bit of an escape to the tropics let us know – we would love to have you join the fun

    We have put together a couple of race itineraries – an 8 day trip including a couple of days of rafting on the Pacuare before the race and a 6 day escape down to Costa Rica for the 24 hour Race. Coast to Coast Adventures is a full service travel agency so organizing a trip for family and friends or adding a few days on the beach after the race are all possibilities.
