The TOUGH-MAN Trail Run Series

The TOUGH-MAN Trail Run Series has no obstacles, no Zombies and definitely no Military styled combat soldiers shouting orders at you..... What it does have is Insane terrain, Deep valleys, Massive climbs , Wild Animals and of course YOU!

The Tough-Man Trail Series is not insanely difficult, but gives each competitor a good test of trail running endurance while taking in the breath taking scenery and wildlife that we are blessed with in South Africa. Each event is limited to 300 runners.
