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!

Will Habo return to the Senior Team Runner role this week at home against Thomastown and be able to keep up the same "message delivery pace" set by the understudy over the last two games ?
