The Tough Bloke website includes lots of photographs and descriptions of the event.  The course overview discription is as follows:

The Tough Bloke Challenge is open to men and women who wish to confront a hellish 7km assault course in a test of strength and endurance.

Reputed to be one of the most gruelling adventure runs found anywhere in Australia, you will brave 20 hair-raising obstacles over a cross-country course laden with thick mud-pits and ice-cold water crossings.

Expect muscle-burning obstacles, mud trenches covered with barbed wire, and damp, dark concrete tunnels. Amongst other challenges, the ultimate hurdle, aptly named ‘Hells Gate’, is the one feared by most and comes with tales of rope burns at nerve-racking heights.

Designed for the weekend warrior this is running at its toughest. Take it seriously, or not (some opt to walk the entire course), the event promises to be a fun day out for all.

Every participant who completes the challenge will receive a finishers certificate and an opportunity at unlimited bragging rights!


Comment Guidelines: The SportingPulse Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.


The 2015 PHFC Best and Fairest votes have been counted for the three sides up to Round 12. Over the next few days, between now and the Presentation Night on September 4, you can have your say on who you think might take out the award this year in each of the Seniors, Reserves and Under 19s.

Firstly, the Under 19s currently sees Michael Linton just ahead of Ben Brennan who are both hotly pursued by Dan Freeman, Scott Thompson, Oscar Weichmann, Dan Burleigh and Jackson Mill all within range.

Or is there a "smokey"
