ONE of Scotland’s most difficult obstacle courses is set to return to Knockhill Racing Circuit in January.

MacTuff is challenging West Fifers to take on the course that utilises the terrain, natural water and traditional racing hurdles and make lifetime memories along the way.

The event will return, post-COVID, to Knockhill on January 8 and participants will be able to choose from 7K and 15K courses.

Dunfermline pipers will play before the runners take on their first obstacle, a fully kitted-out American football team. Challengers will then be put to the test as they make their way through the mud and water and over whatever is in their path. The aim of Mactuff is to test not only competitors’ physical strength but also mental grit.

The MacTuff team believe that character is built through challenge and this race is for anyone who has ever wanted to push themselves.

Participants for the MacTuff Scotland New Year challenge must be over 17 and need to register online. Tickets cost £60 for regular individual entry or £70 for late registration.
