Fisherman’s Friend StrongMan Run 2013

2013 Results

A 14 mile, 2 lap obstacle course around Germany's Nurburgring

With dozens of gnarly obstacles to tackle, this is a race to the finish - you just need to beat the other 14,000 people in your way.

Tobias' finish position: 24th in 2hrs:10

They say ignorance is bliss, a mantra I decided to adopt in preparation for the Fisherman’s Friend StrongMan Run that I completed last May 2013 in Germany.   Invited by Fisherman’s Friend UK, I was honoured to join Team GB, a collection of adventurers, personal trainers and bloggers.

The team was comprised of celebrity personal trainer Stuart Amory (our team captain and 3 time veteran of the race), James Ketchell (summited Everest, rowed the Atlantic and now cycling around the world), Ross Edgaley (a man with more muscles than all of us put together), Sean Conway (crazy endurance adventurer), Dafyd Owen (blogger cum runner extraordinaire), Mitch Lawrence (former strongman turned personal trainer cum fitness model) and little old moi!

Check out the video that Sean Conway made of his first ever race.  Considering the man has cycled around the world and swum the length of Britain, this was something very different for him.

Read my front cover feature article in the August 2013 issue of Men’s Running or in my portfolio.

Fancy dress, dozens of obstacles, more tires than you can shake a stick at, this is a brilliant race!
