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, participants will brave 20 hair-raising obstacles over a cross-country course laden with thick mud-pits and ice-cold water crossings. 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.


Join the Volunteer Team and support the event and their charity partner The McGrath Foundation and make this great event possible.

It will be an amazing day out, so register now on the right side of the page.

For volunteers who don’t drive we will organise a volunteer shuttle from Central Sydney at approx 5.30am with stops along the route to the event. 

Please indicate your form of transport and preferred pick up point for the day when you register on the right hand side and we will be in touch to confirm exact pick up point and times with you closer to the event.
