Survival is The Fittest

Thousands of competitors walked on hot coals, swam through underwater tunnels and braved electric fences in what's billed as the world's ultimate endurance test.


The Tough Guy 2009 challenge is described by its organisers as a 'uniquely fear-ridden' test of both body and spirit, reports the Daily Mail.


Competitors from 25 countries descended on South Perton Farm, near Wolverhampton, for the brutal survival race.


They were strongly advised to prepare by undergoing cold water training to guard against the potentially lethal threat of hypothermia.


The freezing cold challengers began the race with a gruelling six-mile cross-country run and were then challenged by 21 different obstacles including tunnels and swamps to complete the course.


The event's website warns: "The event is uniquely fear ridden and you need to be fit in both body and spirit to survive the ordeal."


The hardy challengers risk cuts, burns, broken bones and possibly worse as they make their way across the 150-acre site.


Competitors must sign a 'Death Warrant disclaimer' before taking part in the event which claims to be the 'safest most dangerous taste of mental physical pain and endurance on earth'.
