The du Tough Mudder challenge returns to the UAE next month and with the help of Volvic and their brand ambassador Marcus Smith we’ve been giving you some top tips.

Step one was goal setting, followed by advice on what is the right nutrition and hydration with making sure to utilise the best stretches, to getting yourself in tip top shape.

Running will of course be a key element, but so will your determination, mental strength and team work as you tackle the du Tough Mudder challenge on December 8 and 9.

Naturally, there is going to be challenging times through any race, times when you want to give up and stop.

But remember where you started and all the hard work you put in to make the goal possible of getting over the finish line at Hamdan Sports Complex for du Tough Mudder.

There’s no point in making the sacrifice to compete if you are not going to give 100% to get the best out of yourself on race day.

Du Tough Mudder is all about team work so make you are thinking about others around you during the gruelling military style course.

So, check out Marcus’ handy hint above and don’t forget, for your chance to be a part of Marcus’ Volvic Army, all you have to do is upload a picture or video on social media of you completing a run and hashtag #FindYourVolcano.

The Color Run presented by Daman’s Activelife returned to the UAE Saturday with another record-breaking turn out.

Celebrating its fifth year in the UAE, runners donned their most colorful outfits and ran, danced and skipped their way through the Happiest 5k on the Planet.

This year, Color Runners were invited to ‘Dream in Color’ and experience the all new Foam Zone, which proved to be a huge hit.

Elsewhere on the course, Color Runners were covered from head to toe in an array of brand new colors in more Color Zones than ever before along the 5k route.
An incredible day out for the entire family, friends and colleagues, Color Runners showed their aspirations on the brand new Dream Wall as well.



The event culminated with the ultimate color party at the Finish Festival and the famous color throws.

Greg Sproule, managing director of organisers IMG Middle East, said: “We are thrilled with another huge turnout for the Color Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife this year. The new Foam Zone and Dream Wall were a great addition and together with all the Color Zones, we created a truly magical 5k run.”
