Tough Guy Race is an annual meeting that takes place the last Sunday of January close to Wolverhampton, in the English midlands. This year, 5,000 maniacs tackled more than 200 obstacles, including mud, smoke, fire, and electrical shocks. More than 1,500 competitors failed to even complete the course. With a time of one hour and 39 minutes, Norway’s John Albon was declared the 2015 champion.
