Tough Guys Involved in Ultimate Survival Competition


The world's ultimate test for survival gathered thousands "Tough Guys" from 25 countries.

The event, entitled "Tough Guy", took part in Perton, south Staffordshire, UK. Some participants wore fancy dresses while others decided to wear little outfit at all. One of the participants even wore a "Mankini", just like the one Borat wore.

It was quite difficult, but those willing to pass the Army-style assault route didn't pay a lot of attention to the severely cold conditions.

Nevertheless all participants, prior to the event, were advised to carry out "cold water training" in order to protect themselves from hypothermia.

It is the 23rd time that the competition gathers wannabes who get involved in a cross-country run, which includes 21 different obstacles such as tunnels and swaps.

Fearlessly thousands of people walked on hot coals, swam across underwater tunnels and challenged electric fences across the area of 150 acres.

The official website of the event states: "The event is uniquely fear ridden and you need to be fit in both body and spirit to survive the ordeal. You will not be alone, thousands will be by your side. There you will find the true spirit of Tough Guy."

It is worth mentioning that before the competition participants must sign the so-called "Death Warrant disclaimer".

The organizers of the test state that the "Tough Guy competition" is the safest most dangerous taste of both mental and physical pain on earth.
