Toyo teams up with Tough Mudder for 2019 events
Toyo Tire UK Ltd teamed up with Tough Mudder for a second year running to sponsor the globally renowned series of mud runs.
Given Toyo’s reputation for making mud-plugging tyres in the form of the Open Country range, this move to support the muddiest, teamwork-inspired challenge on the planet comes as no surprise that the company deem the Tough Mudder challenge as perfectly in line with Toyo’s Proxes SUV range and Open Country off-road products.
Tough Mudder is a series of team-oriented obstacle courses that run throughout the UK. The first event, the Tough Mudder 5K Urban, kicked off the 2019 season on 12 April In Finsbury Park, North London. Next up is Tough Mudder London West which will feature the muddy 5K version and Tough Mudder Classic, which features 8-10 miles of muddy mayhem and loaded with 25 best-in-class obstacles and 10 new or updated 2019 obstacles on every single course.
Every entrant will be able to tackle the latest Toyo-backed “overtired” obstacle where runners must take a running jump and see if they can clear the boggy waters beneath before using teamwork to make it over the walls. Then there’s Toyo’s ownership of the legendary ‘Human Hamster Wheel’ as well.
Toyo has also provided a 24in x 1.4m earth-moving excavator tyre (weighing in at a monstrous 120kg) for the course Tyre Flip Challenge!
