Tough Mudder returned to the UAE and pushed the brave participants to breaking point.

The obstacle course included the Black Widow, a series of 30 elevated tight ropes suspended over water, and the Leap of Faith, where participants are required to jump and grab hold of a cargo net. Other signature challenges coming to Abu Dhabi include The Mud Mile, a run that includes contestants going through ditches caked in mud.

All in all, a jolly good way to spend a Friday morning.
